Solar Radiation Shield

The solar radiation shield houses the temperature, humidity and pressure sensors. Fins on the shield encourage air flow through the housing so that the temperature, humidity and pressure sensors are kept at air temperature and are not warmed by direct exposure to solar radiation.

The logger electronics are situated in a weatherproof chamber at the top of the radiation shield. This keeps the logger close to the sensors.

Temperature Sensor

The temperature sensor is a high accuracy thermister which has been factory calibrated to within 0.2 °C. This alleviates the need for any user calibration. The sensor has low thermal mass so as to ensure a fast response time.

  • Weather-Pro Range -30°C~70°C 
  • Accuracy ±0.3°C from (0°C~50°C)

Humidity Sensor

The HUMIREL HS1101 Humidity sensor provides:

  • Instantaneous desaturation
  • Solid polymer structure
  • High resistance to chemicals
  • Fast response time
  • Range 0%~100%
  • Accuracy RH ±5%
Pressure Sensor

The Lucas NovaSensor NPP-301 pressure sensor features:

  • Ultra high stability
  • Silicon fusion bonded
  • Wide operating temperature
  • -40 to +125°C
  • Static accuracy 
  • < 0.20% FSO Max
  • Range 500hPa~1100hPa
  • Accuracy ±2hPa
Wind Vane

The wind vane has been specifically designed for the Weather-Pro weather station. It is manufactured from stainless steel and anodized aluminum so as to provide minimum maintenance and maximum reliability. 

  • Range 0°~360° 
  • Accuracy ±5° 
  • Dead band 20° (350°~10°)
Anemometer 

The Anemometer is used for the measurement of wind velocity. The Weather-pro anemometer is manufactured from stainless steel and anodized aluminum so as to provide minimum maintenance and maximum reliability.

  • Range 0~55 m/s 
  • Accuracy ±2%
  • Start Speed 0.9 m/s
  • Stop Speed 0.6 m/s
Light Energy Sensor (Pyranometer) 

The Pyranometer has been designed to provide a wide spectral response and excellent cosine correction.

  • Range 0~1500 w/m²
  • Accuracy  ±5%
