temperature sensor / flow / ships
Introducing the new Observator Radiation Shield, designed to house temperature and humidity probes and protect them from the heating effects of solar radiation and direct exposure to rain and snow.
The design of the shield has a white outer reflective surface combined with an inner barrier of non-reflective, black louvres. This prevents sunlight and reflected radiation reaching the sensor whilst still allowing air to flow across the sensor. This design is based on the Stevenson Screen which is now established as an industry standard and sold to National Meteorological Services worldwide.
