Xplorer 4


Ultimate In Handheld Meteorological Instruments


Following the hugely successful Skywatch line, the Xplorer range offer the ultimate in handheld meteorological instruments.

The Xplorer 4 features:
Balanced instant windspeed, anemometer
Maximum windspeed
Temperature measuring range of sensor: -40C to 80C (-40F to 176F)
Calculation of the wind chill factor
Electronic compass in degrees
Absolute pressure from 300 to 1100hPa
Relative pressure with calibration
Weather forecast with barometric pressure tendencies
Altitude with calibration. Definition: 1meter/3 feet. Maximum altitude: 8000 meters

Features common to all 4 models:
– Wind speed units: km/h, m/s, knots, mph, fps
– Maximum reading: 150 km/h, 42 m/s, 81 knots, 97 mph, 138 fps
– Backlight
– Stainless steel back
– Replaceable lithium battery
– Waterproof

Technical specifications:
Size: 41 x 93 x 17 mm
Weight: 53gr
Operational temperatures: -30 to +60 C
Normal battery life: Without records, approx 30,000 measurements of 1 minute (auto off) and more than 20 years when off. With records, approximately 25,000 measurements of 1 minute (auto off) and 7 years when off. Intensive use of backlight reduces the battery life (consumption approximately 100 times greater than without backlight).

S&W Verdict:

“Handy bit of kit to have when your not too sure of the wind strength!”
