The RAD10E, manufactured by MetSpec, is attached to a Campbell Scientific crossarm or mast. The RAD10E uses a double-louvered design that offers improved sensor protection from driving rain, snow, and insect intrusion. This shield also has lower self-heating in bright sunlight combined with higher temperatures (> 24°C (~75°F)) and low wind speeds (< 2 m s-1 (~4.5 mph)), giving a better measurement.
The RAD10E 10-Plate Solar Radiation Shield houses the EE181-L Temperature and Relative Humidity 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 RAD10E includes a 5.08 cm (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.
