The Multi-Plate Radiation Shield protects temperature and relative humidity sensors from error-producing solar radiation and precipitation. Compact size and light weight make this shield useful for many applications.
The multiple plates have a unique profile that blocks direct and reflected solar radiation, yet permits easy passage of air. The plate material is specially formulated for high reflectivity, low thermal conductivity, and maximum weather resistance. The rugged U-bolt mounting clamp attaches easily to any vertical pipe up to 2 inches diameter. Model 41003 employs a universal clamp-type adapter to securely hold sensors up to 16 mm diameter. Model 41003P has a custom sized adapter to fit a sensor from 16 mm to 26 mm diameter (24 mm is supplied unless otherwise specified). A variety of temperature and humidity probes are available.
