Overview

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.

Detailed Description

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.

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.)
Height 39.37 cm (15.50 in.)
Weight 1.04 kg (2.3 lb)

Compatibility

The RAD14 is compatible with the HMP155A Temperature and Relative Humidity Probe. The RAD14 is also compatible with the now-retired HMP45C-L Temperature and Relative Humidity Probe

The RAD14 attaches to a crossarm, mast, or user-supplied pipe with a 1.0 to 2.1 in. OD.
