RAD10E 10-Plate Solar Radiation Shield for EE181 with U-bolt

Overview

The RAD10E, manufactured by MetSpec, is attached to a Campbell Scientific crossarm or mast. The RAD10E uses a double-louvered design that offers improved sensor protection from driving rain, snow, and insect intrusion. This shield also has lower self-heating in bright sunlight combined with higher temperatures (> 24°C (~75°F)) and low wind speeds (< 2 m s-1 (~4.5 mph)), giving a better measurement.

Detailed Description

The RAD10E 10-Plate Solar Radiation Shield houses the EE181-L Temperature and Relative Humidity Probe. The probe fits in the bottom of the shield and is held in place with a foam-lined gland that tightens down around the probe.

The RAD10E includes a 5.08 cm (2 in.) U-bolt with a plastic V-block. The U-bolt is placed in the holes on the side of the bracket for attachment to a mast or vertical pole. The U-bolt is placed in the holes on the bottom of the bracket for attachment to a crossarm.

Specifications

Construction UV-stabilized white thermoplastic plates, aluminum mounting bracket, white powder-coated stainless-steel U-bolt clamp
Plate Diameter 12.3 cm (4.84 in.)

Compatibility

The RAD10E attaches to a crossarm, mast, or user-supplied pipe with a 2.54 to 5.334 cm (1.0 to 2.1 in.) OD.

Sensors

The RAD10E, due to its larger gland size, is only compatible with the EE181-L Temperature and Relative Humidity Probe.
