Weather Station Equipment
Hand held weather meter
|CS Weather has been fortunate enough to come into posession of a Kestrel 3000 pocket weather meter (which was one as a prize - many thanks to the Australian Severe Weather Association and Australian Sky and Weather ).
The unit measures wind speed, temperature, wind chill, relative humidity, heat index and dew point temperature. Temperature is measured via an external thermistor, and a capacitive humidity sensor records relative humidity. Wind speed is measured with a large-diameter precision ultralight impeller which turns on sapphire bearings.
The unit is compact and light measuring 122mm x 42mm x 14mm and weighing 44g.

Lens: 8x power zoom F2.0 f=4.5-36mm
New life for an old unit.
The current camera is an analogue video camera c1996, rescued from the top of the wardrobe. Battery life was poor and you were lucky to get 15 minutes of recording before the battery needed re-charging. The unit runs on mains power via an adaptor.
