You can use the RS3-B solar radiation shield with Hobo external sensors to improve your temperature measurement accuracy in locations exposed to sunlight. The small size and unobstructed airflow of this shield provides a faster response to changing conditions, than larger radiation shields.
The RS3-B solar radiation shield works with most of Onset’s external temperature and temperature/relative humidity sensors, including those for our Hobo weather station products.
For customers looking for a radiation shield large enough to mount a Hobo data logger inside it, Pedak also offers two other models of solar radiation shields: the RS1 and the pre-assembled M-RSA.
Time response: 2,5 times faster than the RS1 and M-RSA
Wind resistance: tested in sustained winds up to 129 km/h and tested in gusts up to 161 km/h
Shield: ASA styrene (UV-stable)
Bracket: glass-filled nylon (UV-stable)
Mounting hardware: stainless steel and brass
Temperature range: -40° to 75°C
Weight: 113 grams
Height: 89 mm: 159 mm with bracket
Diameter: 102 mm: bracket protrudes an additional 51 mm from shield
Maximum sensor diameter: 1,22 cm
Mounting: up to 51 mm mast diameter with hose clamp: unlimited with screws
Compatible sensors: S-THB-M00x, S-TMB-M0xx, RXW-THC-xxx, RXW-TMB-xxx, TMCx-HD and external sensors from U23-00x or MX230x.
Note: this shield does not protect sensors from light reflected from below the shield at some angles. For deployments over reflective surfaces, consider using Onset’s RS1 or M-RSA solar radiation shields.
