The CM225 attaches one pyranometer or quantum sensor to a mast, crossarm, or pole (1.0 to 2.1 in. OD). Many pyranometers and quantum sensors also require a leveling base that secures the sensor to the CM225 as well as level the sensor (see Compatibility).
The CM225 consists of a rectangular plate, mounting bracket, U-bolts, lock washers, and nuts.
In the image, the CM225 is shown attached to a CM200-series crossarm.
