Yesterday marked the official release date of our newest product, the Kestrel 4400 Heat Stress Tracker! This product has been in the making for quite some time and the team here at NK is excited it is finally time to share it with our customers and dealers. The most revolutionary feature about this item is that it measures WBGT (wet bulb globe temperature) in such a small, compact instrument.
For those reading this that don’t know, WBGT is a crucial measurement that has been referenced in many published work and activity related guidelines. This specific parameter is used in sports and professions across many industries to prevent heat related illnesses and deaths. After years in the works, Kestrel Pocket Weather Meters now has a solution to measure WBGT in a rugged, affordable instrument.
With the release date only one day ago, we have already received a large amount of orders and with the hot weather just around the corner, we expect more customers to prepare for the season by ordering their Kestrel 4400.
The list below represents the types of markets that will be most likely to use this product, we are looking forward to seeing what additional industries have a need to measure heat stress and WBGT:
- Athletes (highschool, college, professional)
- Athletic trainers
- Military training units & medics
- Law enforcement medics
- Industrial hygienists
- Construction supervisors
- Others working in extreme heat conditions
When compared to the competition, the 4400 offer several desirable advantages including the following:
- Fraction of the size
- Less than half of the cost
- Equal or better accuracy
- Fast response
- Simple user interface
To promote the Heat Stress Tracker, the Kestrel girls will be attending several events including the AIHCE show for industrial hygienists and the NATA show gear toward athletic trainers.
