For many applications, the 015ARM Pyranometer Mounting Arm has been replaced by a CM225 Solar Sensor Mounting Stand. The 015ARM is used to attach a pyranometer or quantum sensor to a tripod. Many pyranometers and quantum sensors also require a leveling base that secures the sensor to the 015ARM and levels the sensor.
The 015ARM consists of a square platform, mounting arm, and mounting hardware.
|Why/When to Use||Recommended when the sensor needs to be mounted directly to a tripod mast without using a crossarm.|
|Platform Area||15.2 x 15.2 cm (6.0 x 6.0 in.)|
|Arm Length||106.7 cm (42.0 in.)|
|Weight||2.5 kg (5.5 lb)|
