Solar Radiation and Precipitation Shields
The Vaisala Radiation Shield Series DTR500 are solar radiation and precipitation shields supporting humidity probe installations in outdoor applications.
The maintenance-free DTR500 series shields protect the humidity and temperature sensors from solar radiation and precipitation. They provide excellent ventilation while blocking both direct and reflected solar radiation.
The special plastic used in the plates has excellent thermal characteristics; the white outer surface reflects radiation; the black inside absorbs accumulated heat. The shields can be easily installed on either a vertical pole, horizontal beam, or a flat surface.
