Introducing the Global Water Solar Radiation Shield

Accurate temperature and humidity data are crucial for optimal performance in various applications, especially in marine environments. The new Global Water Solar Radiation Shield provides a user-friendly solution for protecting your WQ101 Temperature Sensor and WE600 Humidity Sensor, ensuring reliable data collection.

Effortless Installation:

  • Pre-Assembled Convenience: The shield arrives complete with brackets and fittings specifically designed for the WQ101 Temperature Sensor and WE600 Humidity Sensor. This eliminates the need for separate component acquisition and simplifies the installation process.
  • Seamless Integration: Engineered for compatibility with the WE800 and WE900 weather station’s 1-inch stainless steel tube frame, the shield integrates effortlessly into your existing setup.
  • Mounting Flexibility: The integrated hanger of the shield allows for multiple mounting options, providing you with the freedom to position the shield for optimal data collection based on your specific needs.

Built to Endure:

  • Long-lasting Protection: The shield is treated with a special UV-resistant coating to combat degradation caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight. This ensures the shield’s integrity and functionality over an extended lifespan.
  • Environmental Awareness: While the UV-resistant coating enhances the shield’s durability, its overall lifespan can be further extended by considering the mounting location and environmental factors. For example, positioning the shield in areas with minimal direct sunlight exposure can significantly enhance its longevity.

Beyond the Basics: Optimizing Shield Performance

Here are some additional tips for maximizing the effectiveness of your Global Water Solar Radiation Shield:

  • Mounting Considerations: When selecting a mounting location, prioritize areas with minimal direct sunlight exposure, especially during peak sun hours. This will further minimize the influence of solar radiation on sensor readings.
  • Regular Inspections: Conduct periodic visual inspections of the shield to ensure it remains free of debris or obstructions that could hinder airflow or sensor performance.
  • Data Monitoring: Monitor your temperature and humidity data trends to identify any potential anomalies. This can help you assess the shield’s effectiveness and identify any maintenance needs.


By incorporating the Global Water Solar Radiation Shield into your weather station setup, you gain a valuable tool for acquiring accurate environmental data. Its user-friendly design, pre-assembled components, and multiple mounting options streamline installation while its UV-resistant coating ensures long-lasting protection. By following the suggested best practices for shield placement and maintenance, you can maximize its effectiveness and ensure the integrity of your temperature and humidity data for years to come.
