The SRS100LX temperature and humidity radiation shield is a low cost solution for protecting temperature and relative humidity sensors. It consists of nine molded plastic plates and a UV inhibited ABS plastic mounting arm. The wedge-shaped plates provide maximum airflow around the sensor while at the same time minimizing direct exposure to sunlight. The passive shield is shaped to allow natural air convection around the sensor so that the air temperature inside the shield is a good representation of the outside air. The shield also provides protection from rain and snow.
The SRS100LX radiation shield fits most temperature and humidity sensors sold by Ambient Weather. Order the SRS100 for smaller sensor installations (reference dimensions below).
The SRS100LX is designed with a highly reflective white surface to reflect the sun's direct radiation. The multi-plate design allows for maximum airflow. The UV inhibited ABS plastic mounting arm can be mounted to any vertical surface. U-Bolts are included to mount to any pole.
