Helical radiation shield technology set to revolutionize air temperature measurement

The MeteoShield-based sensor system

Online — The helical solar radiation shield, officially launched at the Meteorological Technology World Expo 2017 by Barani Design Technologies, a Slovakian manufacturer of meteorological sensors, achieves what had not been previously possible with multi-plate radiation shields.

Opposing goals of maintaining free airflow to the internal sensor whilst also ensuring 360° sensor protection from the sun and all reflected radiation were realized in this one-of-a-kind design. It also protects sensors from water spray, rain, dirt and snow.

These opposing goals had previously not been possible without fan-aspiration in the now market-dominant multi-plate solar screens.

The patented spiral design achieves both goals simultaneously, thus ensuring new levels of air temperature accuracy and long-term measurement stability.
