The Vane Mount is compatible with all Kestrel models. And paired with the Kestrel's 2000 data-point memory log, extensive data can be collected including wind speed and direction.
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 15-1/4 cm) case, which protects the Vane Mount pieces and Kestrel Meter. The Vane Mount can be affixed to any tripod for a complete weather station you can easily pack into remote locations.

Note: If using the Vane Mount with a Kestrel 4000 series model, simply slip the Kestrel Meter into the cup bracket The front (screen) side of the Kestrel Meter should be facing the boom. If using a Kestrel 1000-3500 model, use the enclosed hook-&-loop fastener cable tie to affix the lanyard so that the Vane Mount can still spin freely. Refer to included instructions for proper assembly.
