Solar Radiation Shield

A solar radiation shield for temperature relative humidity sensors Allows airflow over sensor but prevents sun from heating the sensor.
A well-designed radiation shield will reduce the temperature error or excess heating caused by the sun shining directly on the temperature sensing element. There are two types of shields, naturally ventilated and forced ventilated.

The most normal personal weather stations usually come with sensors that are not protected from solar radiation or they have additional sensors that you might want to protect from solar radiation..

Location Tips for a weather radiation shield or a outdoor temperature sensor sun shield

  • The radiation shield works best when in a location with a steady breeze. Mount
    away from fences, buildings, trees, or other obstructions.
  • Install over plants or soil if possible.
  • Do not install over or near sprinklers. The radiation shield is not designed to
    protect the sensor from water sprayed upward.
  • If attaching to a building, the preferred location would be on the north side in the
    Northern Hemisphere and on the south side in the Southern Hemisphere.

Ambient Weather SRS100LX Temperature and Humidity Solar Radiation Shield

Solar Radiation ShieldThe 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.

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.

Features for the Ambient Weather Temperature and Humidity Solar Radiation Shield
Outer Dimensions (WxLxH): 7.4″ x 9.2″ x 10.9″
Inner Dimensions (WxLxH): 2.5″ x 4.3″ x 7.4″
Includes mounting arm bracket and U-Bolts
Easy installation – can be mounted to any vertical surface, wood post, or pole
Multi-plate design allows for maximum airflow
Shield also provides protection from rain and snow
