The RAD14 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 RAD14 is mounted to a crossarm with an HMP155A-L.Read More
The RAD14 14-Plate Solar Radiation Shield typically houses the HMP155A 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 RAD14 includes a 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.
