Set the Wireless Range  Now you can set the range for your Bluetooth.  The range options are as follows:  Low (3ft) Medium (10ft ) or High (30ft).  ,[object Object],[object Object]
Obtain Bluetooth Kestrel PIN & ID In order to give you added security with your Bluetooth unit, each Kestrel comes with a unique PIN and ID number to ensure pairing with your device. You will use this ID number and PIN on your PC to pair with the Kestrel. ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Pair the Kestrel with a PC Here is a basic guideline for pairing the Kestrel with a PC. Please note, individual Bluetooth software programs and navigation may vary. Some computers are not equipped with a Bluetooth option. In this case, it is required to use a dongle for Bluetooth communication with your computer. Once you determine that your computer is equipped with Bluetooth, follow the below instructions.  ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]

Not all Pressure is Created Equal ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
To Read Station Pressure ,[object Object],Station pressure is the actual measurement of pressure at a location  without  being adjusted for sea level.
Measuring Barometric Pressure and Altitude ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Barometric Pressure Adjustment ,[object Object],Depending on your Kestrel meter, there are two ways to adjust the alt/baro. If the unit serial number is 601000 or above, complete the following instructions. If the unit serial number below 601000, please skip to slide 25.  4.  You can sync the reference barometric pressure on the ALTITUDE screen by setting “Sync Alt” to On . 3.  You can adjust the reference altitude by pressing the left or right buttons.
Barometric Pressure Adjustment * Follow these instructions for Kestrel meters with a serial number  below  601000 .  ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Altitude Adjustment ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],*Both readings will now be accurate.
Understanding Air Pressure At  high  elevations, the air is not very dense at all.  The effect of gravity is less than at lower elevations or the surface of the Earth.  Because there is very little air above, the  air pressure  is low. At low elevations, the air is much more dense.  The effect of gravity is greater than at higher elevations.  Because there is a lot of air above, the  air pressure  is high. The same phenomenon is more easily understood in terms of water depth.  It’s obvious to most people that the deeper you go under water, the greater the water pressure.  The same concept is true for air.
Air Pressure and Altitude Again, the pressure measurement at any location is called STATION PRESSURE.  This is the pressure that you measure at a particular place, or station.  Another term is  unadjusted pressure . There is a very good rule of thumb for estimating the difference in station pressure as you change altitude. - For every 10 feet of altitude, the pressure decreases by 0.01inHg. - For every 100 feet of altitude, the pressure decreases by 0.10inHg. - For every 1000 feet of altitude, the pressure decreases by 1.00inHg. Therefore, if the pressure is measured at sea level to be 29.92inHg, the pressure 1000ft higher would be 28.92inHg. 10ft 20ft 30ft 40ft 50ft 100ft 1000ft 29.92inHg 29.91inHg 29.90inHg 29.89inHg 29.88inHg 29.82inHg 28.92inHg
Weather Fronts Air pressure at a certain location constantly changes depending on the weather. An area described as High pressure has air which has a tendency to push downward toward the Earth.  Low pressure areas have air push upwards from the Earth. Pressure trends can be very useful in weather forecasting.  A very good rule of thumb is that a quickly decreasing pressure indicates a storm is coming.
Barometric Pressure Weather stations, weather websites and airports report a current pressure and pressure trend.  The example to the left was taken from weather.com for Denver.  But Denver is a big area, and there are very different altitudes throughout the region.  How can this information be used? Weather reports always publish  BAROMETRIC PRESSURE .  This is NOT the same as  STATION PRESSURE  described in the earlier slides.  Barometric pressure is the pressure found at sea level rather than at your particular altitude. Let’s assume that the weather information here was taken at the Denver airport, which is located at 5000ft elevation.  They would use an instrument at the airport which measures station pressure.  The measurement they would get on their instrument is 25.21inHg.  This low pressure should make sense because Denver is very high, and we know that pressure decreases as we increase in altitude. They would adjust their station pressure measurement to account for their altitude above sea level.  We already learned that 1000ft = 1.00inHg.  So they would add 5.00inHg to their measurement in order to calculate the barometric pressure (adjusted to sea level) of 30.21inHg. 5000ft above sea level = 5.00inHg 25.21inHg + 5.00inHg = 30.21inHg Cloudy 54 ° F Feels like 54 ° F UV Index: 1 Low Wind: From East at 11 mph Humidity: 68% Pressure: 30.21 inHg  ↓ Dew Point: 44° F Visibility: 10.0 miles
Kestrel: BARO Mode BARO  inHg 25.21 Ref  0  ft —  set  ref The Kestrel at the Denver airport would look like the display to the left.  If the reference altitude is set to 0 ft, the Kestrel will not adjust for an altitude change.  This measurement is station pressure. The Kestrel is capable of displaying station pressure as well as barometric pressure.  In order to display barometric pressure, the user will be required to input the current altitude. BARO  inHg 30.21 Ref  5000  ft —  set  ref If the reference altitude is set to 5000 ft, the display would look like this.  This measurement is barometric pressure. The barometric pressure will be correct AS LONG AS THE USER IS IN THIS LOCATION (at the same altitude).  If the Kestrel is moved to another location, then the reference altitude will have to be changed accordingly.
Monitoring Barometric Pressure If the user is staying in one location, such as at their home or office, then the Kestrel can be used to monitor barometric pressure changes.  This is very useful for forecasting the weather in a basic way.  If the pressure drops quickly, a storm is likely coming.  If the pressure is steady or rising, the weather is likely to be good. Pressure changes are relatively slow compared to other environmental conditions.  Noticeable pressure changes generally happen over the course of 3+ hours. The barometric pressure readings will always be accurate as long as the reference altitude on the BARO screen is accurate. Station pressure can always be displayed simply be setting the reference altitude to 0. L
Kestrel: ALTITUDE Mode ALTITUDE  ft 4710 Ref  29.92  inHg —  set  ref The Kestrel at the Denver airport would look like the display to the left.  If the reference barometric pressure is set incorrectly, the calculated altitude will be incorrect. The Kestrel will display PRESSURE ALTITUDE, which is an altitude  calculated  based on a station pressure measurement and a barometric pressure reference setting.  The ALTITUDE mode is completely independent of the BARO mode.  Making changes to the reference value on one screen has no effect on the other screen.  5000 If the reference pressure is set correctly to 30.21inHg, the display would look like this. What happens if a weather front changes the pressure?  The altitude will be wrong.  If the barometric pressure ISN’T 30.21inHg any more, then the altitude calculation will be based on bad information.  The user would have to update accordingly. ALTITUDE  ft Ref  30.21  inHg —  set  ref
Tracking Altitude The Kestrel can be used to track altitude changes for climbing and hiking.  Before beginning the climb, the reference pressure on the ALTITUDE screen must be updated.  The altitude will then be correct for as long as the barometric pressure remains the same.  This assumption is generally good for at least 3 hours. 100ft
Altitude and Pressure Changes The worst case scenario is when the Kestrel is changing altitude at the same time that the weather is changing the pressure.  Therefore, it is always advisable to verify the measurements as frequently as possible. If a current barometric pressure is available, the reference pressure on the ALTITUDE screen should be updated. If a landmark, chart or GPS altitude is available, the reference altitude on the BARO screen should be changed.  Use the new barometric pressure measurement as the reference pressure on the ALTITUDE screen. 100ft L

  • 27. Understanding Air Pressure At high elevations, the air is not very dense at all. The effect of gravity is less than at lower elevations or the surface of the Earth. Because there is very little air above, the air pressure is low. At low elevations, the air is much more dense. The effect of gravity is greater than at higher elevations. Because there is a lot of air above, the air pressure is high. The same phenomenon is more easily understood in terms of water depth. It’s obvious to most people that the deeper you go under water, the greater the water pressure. The same concept is true for air.
  • 28. Air Pressure and Altitude Again, the pressure measurement at any location is called STATION PRESSURE. This is the pressure that you measure at a particular place, or station. Another term is unadjusted pressure . There is a very good rule of thumb for estimating the difference in station pressure as you change altitude. - For every 10 feet of altitude, the pressure decreases by 0.01inHg. - For every 100 feet of altitude, the pressure decreases by 0.10inHg. - For every 1000 feet of altitude, the pressure decreases by 1.00inHg. Therefore, if the pressure is measured at sea level to be 29.92inHg, the pressure 1000ft higher would be 28.92inHg. 10ft 20ft 30ft 40ft 50ft 100ft 1000ft 29.92inHg 29.91inHg 29.90inHg 29.89inHg 29.88inHg 29.82inHg 28.92inHg
  • 29. Weather Fronts Air pressure at a certain location constantly changes depending on the weather. An area described as High pressure has air which has a tendency to push downward toward the Earth. Low pressure areas have air push upwards from the Earth. Pressure trends can be very useful in weather forecasting. A very good rule of thumb is that a quickly decreasing pressure indicates a storm is coming.
  • 30. Barometric Pressure Weather stations, weather websites and airports report a current pressure and pressure trend. The example to the left was taken from weather.com for Denver. But Denver is a big area, and there are very different altitudes throughout the region. How can this information be used? Weather reports always publish BAROMETRIC PRESSURE . This is NOT the same as STATION PRESSURE described in the earlier slides. Barometric pressure is the pressure found at sea level rather than at your particular altitude. Let’s assume that the weather information here was taken at the Denver airport, which is located at 5000ft elevation. They would use an instrument at the airport which measures station pressure. The measurement they would get on their instrument is 25.21inHg. This low pressure should make sense because Denver is very high, and we know that pressure decreases as we increase in altitude. They would adjust their station pressure measurement to account for their altitude above sea level. We already learned that 1000ft = 1.00inHg. So they would add 5.00inHg to their measurement in order to calculate the barometric pressure (adjusted to sea level) of 30.21inHg. 5000ft above sea level = 5.00inHg 25.21inHg + 5.00inHg = 30.21inHg Cloudy 54 ° F Feels like 54 ° F UV Index: 1 Low Wind: From East at 11 mph Humidity: 68% Pressure: 30.21 inHg ↓ Dew Point: 44° F Visibility: 10.0 miles
  • 31. Kestrel: BARO Mode BARO inHg 25.21 Ref 0 ft — set ref The Kestrel at the Denver airport would look like the display to the left. If the reference altitude is set to 0 ft, the Kestrel will not adjust for an altitude change. This measurement is station pressure. The Kestrel is capable of displaying station pressure as well as barometric pressure. In order to display barometric pressure, the user will be required to input the current altitude. BARO inHg 30.21 Ref 5000 ft — set ref If the reference altitude is set to 5000 ft, the display would look like this. This measurement is barometric pressure. The barometric pressure will be correct AS LONG AS THE USER IS IN THIS LOCATION (at the same altitude). If the Kestrel is moved to another location, then the reference altitude will have to be changed accordingly.
  • 32. Monitoring Barometric Pressure If the user is staying in one location, such as at their home or office, then the Kestrel can be used to monitor barometric pressure changes. This is very useful for forecasting the weather in a basic way. If the pressure drops quickly, a storm is likely coming. If the pressure is steady or rising, the weather is likely to be good. Pressure changes are relatively slow compared to other environmental conditions. Noticeable pressure changes generally happen over the course of 3+ hours. The barometric pressure readings will always be accurate as long as the reference altitude on the BARO screen is accurate. Station pressure can always be displayed simply be setting the reference altitude to 0. L
  • 33. Kestrel: ALTITUDE Mode ALTITUDE ft 4710 Ref 29.92 inHg — set ref The Kestrel at the Denver airport would look like the display to the left. If the reference barometric pressure is set incorrectly, the calculated altitude will be incorrect. The Kestrel will display PRESSURE ALTITUDE, which is an altitude calculated based on a station pressure measurement and a barometric pressure reference setting. The ALTITUDE mode is completely independent of the BARO mode. Making changes to the reference value on one screen has no effect on the other screen. 5000 If the reference pressure is set correctly to 30.21inHg, the display would look like this. What happens if a weather front changes the pressure? The altitude will be wrong. If the barometric pressure ISN’T 30.21inHg any more, then the altitude calculation will be based on bad information. The user would have to update accordingly. ALTITUDE ft Ref 30.21 inHg — set ref
  • 34. Tracking Altitude The Kestrel can be used to track altitude changes for climbing and hiking. Before beginning the climb, the reference pressure on the ALTITUDE screen must be updated. The altitude will then be correct for as long as the barometric pressure remains the same. This assumption is generally good for at least 3 hours. 100ft
  • 35. Altitude and Pressure Changes The worst case scenario is when the Kestrel is changing altitude at the same time that the weather is changing the pressure. Therefore, it is always advisable to verify the measurements as frequently as possible. If a current barometric pressure is available, the reference pressure on the ALTITUDE screen should be updated. If a landmark, chart or GPS altitude is available, the reference altitude on the BARO screen should be changed. Use the new barometric pressure measurement as the reference pressure on the ALTITUDE screen. 100ft L

Editor's Notes

  1. There are two ways to calibrate a Kestrel 4500NV compass. 1) Enter the Main Menu and use the down arrow then the – button to select system. Now, select “Compass Cal”. Following screen prompts, place Kestrel in foam stand and slowly spin 3 times. 2) Spin slowly 3 times while holding the Kestrel
  2. Current: instantaneous reading 2. Min/Max/Avg: readings from stored data 3. Chart: Graphical display of up to 1400 data points
  3. *User Screens may also be hidden if not needed.
  4. K4500 measures magnetic north but true north can be viewed by entering the variation for your location. Here is how.
  5. Intro Note: Kestrel 4500 automatically calculates crosswind or headwind with respect to a runway or target direction.
  6. Intro notes: how to get the station pressure (the actual pressure of your location)
  7. (Note: very small changes in pressure generate noticeable changes in altitude. In order to provide meaningful readings for activities where altitude changes quickly, the Kestrel Meter features rapid altitude response. This is why the altitude readings tend to fluctuate by a few feet.)
