Solar Radiation Shield - Model 5728-00
Solar Radiation Shield - Model 5728-00

 

 

FEATURES:

 

  • Blocks Direct Sunlight
  • Prevents Reflected Solar Radiation
  • Reduces Temperature & Humidity Errors
  • Low Thermal Conductivity

 


 

DESCRIPTION:

The Solar Radiation Shield - Model 5728-00 protects ambient temperature and relative humidity sensors from direct sunlight and reflected solar radiation. The Solar Radiation Shield actually improves the sampling of air by promoting smooth air flow past the sensor.

Ten white opaque molded plastic discs permit easy air passage through the Solar Radiation Shield while the unique disc profile provides a positive blockage of direct and reflected solar radiation. The Solar Radiation Shield's thermoplastic disc material is specially formulated for maximum protection in harsh environments. This material provides the Solar Radiation Shield with high reflectivity, low thermal conductivity, and low heat retention.

The sensor is enclosed within the plastic disks of the Solar Radiation Shield. A support arm and mounting hardware is included for easy Solar Radiation Shield field installation and attaches to any vertical pipe up to 2 inches (5.1 cm) in diameter.
