The Ambient Temperature Sensor comes factory-assembled inside the radiation shield. The radiation shield bracket can be mounted to a pipe (1.0 - 2.0 in. diameter), using the supplied U-bolt.
The radiation shield can be installed anywhere in the vicinity of the PV array.
It is recommended to place the Ambient Temperature Sensor on the north side (in the northern hemisphere) of the array, otherwise you must provide array shading setback.
