Track weather conditions and record trends at a burn site or from the minute you get on a fire, then export data to get crucial information where it needs to go.
When managing a burn site, knowing environmental conditions are within prescription is important for compliance and to ensure a fire doesn’t get out of control. Gathering sufficient weather data from site visits to make a decision on when to burn can be challenging. In addition to the full wind and weather readings from a Kestrel weather meter, the new Kestrel DROP data loggers can be left on site recording a history of conditions and trends which can then be viewed on a mobile device and shared via email.
Small, Accurate, Rugged and Waterproof
Each Kestrel Fire Weather DROP measures just 1 x 1.8 x 2.4 inches (24 x 46 mm x 60 mm) and weighs just 1.2 ounces (34 grams). DROP loggers meet military and international standards for water, dust and shock resistance (IP-67 and MIL-STD-810G) and are conveniently equipped with a sturdy D-ring for hanging wherever needed.
