SI1145 UV Sensor - How to Mount

Hi there, We are building our own weather station.

Our question is, how should we mount the SI1145 sensor?

Clearly it needs to have light falling on it. But if we place it outside of our box, it will get wet and and damaged.

We can't see any examples of weather boxes on-line with these things.

Anyone got any suggestions?


You should use a non-blocking UV, weather resistant cover. I think there is some Teflon covers suitable for this purpose.
