Kestrel DROP Data Loggers: Essential Tools for Temperature, Humidity, and Pressure Logging

Kestrel DROP data loggers are versatile, compact, and rugged monitoring devices that are used across a wide range of industries for temperature, humidity, and pressure logging. These devices provide accurate and reliable measurements of environmental conditions and enable users to monitor and track weather changes in real-time.

Designed to withstand harsh environmental conditions, DROP data loggers can be used in a variety of settings, including agriculture, construction, HVAC, transportation, and many others. The devices are available in three basic models: Kestrel DROP D1, D2, and D3, each with its own unique set of features and capabilities.

There are also DROPs available with specialty measurements for use in agriculture, wildfire monitoring, human heat stress monitoring, and more:

  • The Kestrel DROP D2AG Livestock Heat Stress Monitor measures temperature, relative humidity, heat stress index, dew point temperature and Temperature Humidity Index (THI) for monitoring conditions in a livestock pen, barn, or truck to ensure animal health and well being.
  • The Kestrel DROP D3FW Fire Weather Monitor tracks and records trends at a burn site or the fire line. Plus you can easily export or share data from the LiNK app for sending and saving crucial information.
  • The Kestrel DROP D2HS Heat Stress Monitor offers a simple, effective way to monitor and track temperature, humidity, heat index and dew point in almost any environment. This easy-to-use logger provides critical safety information for athletic trainers and safety professionals.

Temperature, humidity, and pressure are critical parameters that impact numerous industries, and monitoring them is crucial for safety, quality control, and productivity. In the agricultural sector, for example, monitoring temperature and humidity levels can help farmers prevent crop damage and optimize yields. In the construction industry, monitoring temperature and humidity can help prevent the growth of mold and mildew, ensuring a safer and healthier work environment. Did you know DROPs can even help you with winter fishing by helping to track fish activity?

“The Kestrel DROP loggers are very easy to use. I have used them to monitor temperature in potato seed trucks and in the soil. I buried one DROP 6 inches deep and I could still easily connect and download the data. I really enjoy the bluetooth connectivity. That feature alone make this worth five stars.

Similarly, pressure monitoring is essential in the aviation industry, where it is used to ensure safe takeoff and landing of aircraft. In the automotive industry, pressure monitoring is used to optimize engine performance and improve fuel efficiency. The Kestrel DROP data loggers are versatile tools that can be used in a wide range of applications, making them an essential investment for businesses and organizations that rely on accurate environmental data.

Kestrel DROPs are used to monitor heat stress conditions for search & Rescue canines. Here you can see the DROP clipped onto the K9’s collar.

Monitoring and logging weather conditions is important for a variety of reasons, including safety, productivity, and resource management. Accurate data on temperature, humidity, and pressure can help prevent accidents and minimize downtime, leading to increased efficiency and productivity. In addition, monitoring weather conditions can help businesses and organizations make informed decisions about resource allocation, such as irrigation in agriculture or energy consumption in HVAC systems.

“This little thing rocks! I got it for keeping track of the temperature, humidity, and heat index when backpacking and hiking. It's so light, I don't know it's on me until I need it. At night, I hang it on my hammock tarp ridge line and now from the comfort of the hammock, I can tell my wife that it is NOT freezing, it's only 35-degrees. Perfect for my use and highly recommended. Purchase and delivery was flawless. Ordered on a Monday morning and without any extra shipping charges, I had it on Wednesday.
