The Kestrel Portable Vane Mount is an ingeniously simple accessory designed for extreme light weight and portability. The Kestrel Portable Vane Mount can be coupled with any Kestrel 4000 series meter, including a Kestrel 4500, which creates a data logging weather station capable of tracking changes in the wind direction and speed, then tracking them with your data point memory log. The Vane Mount attaches easily to the Kestrel Portable Tripod (or any tripod) to add directional measurement capabilities to your Kestrel Meter. Together, the Kestrel 4500 and Vane Mount weigh less than 8 ounces (227 g.) and pack into a compact 2 x 6 inch (5 x 15.25 cm) case. The Vane Mount can be affixed to any tripod for a complete weather station you can easily pack into remote locations.
