Overview

The RAD10, manufactured by MetSpec, uses a double-louvered design that offers improved sensor protection from driving rain, snow, and insect intrusion. It also has lower self-heating in bright sunlight combined with higher temperatures (> 24°C (~75°F)) and low wind speeds (< 2m/s (~4.5 mph)), providing a better measurement.

Note: In the image, the RAD10 is mounted to a crossarm with an HC2S3-L.

Detailed Description

The RAD10 10-Plate Solar Radiation Shield typically houses the HC2S3 Temperature and RH 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 RAD10 can also house a 43347 or HMP60 probe. The HMP45C and several other retired sensors are also compatible.

The RAD10 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.
