5980 Radiation Shield

5980 Radiation Shield

Met One Radiation Shields reduce errors in temperature and relative humidity measurements that are caused by direct solar radiation. They are constructed of a series of white aluminum concentric plates, which allow air flow to pass through the shield, while blocking direct solar rays. This shielding minimizes the effects of solar and terrestrial radiation and provides accurate measurements.
