Temperature/Humidity Sensor with 24-hour Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield
Add a temperature/humidity sensor with 24-hour fan-aspirated radiation shield to your Vantage Pro2 or EnviroMonitor system. Use with a Sensor Transmitter or EnviroMonitor Node for flexibility in siting options.
- Features & Benefits
Add flexibility in siting options
Site a temperature/humidity sensor where you want it, even if that location is not ideal for the transmitter, such as within an orchard’s canopy. This sensor comes with a 25 foot (7.6 meter) cable which allows you to plug it into a Sensor Transmitter or EnviroMonitor Node mounted separately from the sensor.
Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield ensures most accurate readings
Features both temperature and humidity sensors inside a 24-Hour Fan-Aspirated Radiation Shield. The fan constantly draws air in over the sensor giving you highly accurate temperature readings even during steep temperature changes such dusk or dawn. The shield protects the sensors from solar radiation and other sources of radiated and reflected heat.
Perfect for installations where steep temperature gradients are common and where winds are low. If your installation does not have steep temperature gradients or low wind, consider the Temperature/Humidity Sensor with passive radiation shield (#6830).
Accurate, high performance sensors
The temperature sensor’s accuracy is ±0.5°F (±0,3°C) from -40° to 150°F (-40° to 65°C)
The humidity sensor’s accuracy is ±2%.
Temperature data updates every 10 seconds; humidity updates every minute.
Powerful 24-hour fan
Fan provides aspiration rate of 190 feet/minute in full sun. On battery only, aspiration rate is 80 feet/minute.
Supercapacitor and back-up batteries keep fan running 24 hours a day.
Motor-driven fan with solar panel and back-up batteries for 24 hour power.
Temperature and humidity sensors with a 25 foot (7,6 meter) cable.
Hardware for mounting on a fence post or pole
Requires a Sensor Transmitter and a receiver, such as a wireless Vantage Pro2 console, WeatherLink Live, Vantage Connect or Weather Envoy; or an EnviroMonitor Node and EnviroMonitor Gateway.
