The UT10 is a durable, lightweight instrument tower that can be used for a variety of applications. It supports a 3 m (10 ft) measurement height for wind sensors as well as sturdy attachment points for antennas, solar panels, environmental enclosures, radiation shields, and crossarms. It is a versatile instrument mount: many of the same sensor mounts that are used with our tripods or other towers can be used with the UT10.Read More
The tower consists of 2.5 cm (1 in.) OD corrosion-resistant aluminum tubing. In cross-section, it is 25.7 cm (10.1 in.) on a side (center of tubing to center of tubing). It includes an adjustable mast, a hinged base, anchor bolts, lightning rod, grounding rod, and cable tie kit.
The J-bolt kit is required to assemble the tower to its concrete pad.
Note: Refer to the "Instrumentation Mounts" product brochure for crossarm, solar radiation mounts, and radiation shield options.
|Required Concrete Pad Dimensions||
61 x 61 x 61 cm (24 x 24 x 24 in.)
Concrete pad requirements assume heavy soil; light, shifting, or sandy soils require a larger concrete pad.
|Leg Spacing||26 cm (10.25 in.) between legs, center to center|
|Pipe Outer Diameter||
|Crossarm Height (attached to mast)||
|Height||3 m (10 ft)|
|Weight||17.2 kg (38 lb)|
Maximum Wind Load Recommendation
Wind load endurance is affected by quality of anchoring and installation; guy wire tension; soil type; guy angle; and number, type, and location of instruments fastened to the tower.
Wind load recommendation assumes proper installation, proper anchoring, adequate soil, and total instrument projected area of less than 0.19 m2 (2 ft2).
|Wind Load Recommendation||177 km/h (110 mph)|
The “-TM” mount option for our environmental enclosures is used to attach our enclosures to a UT10 tower. An enclosure ordered with the “-TM” option will be shipped with a three-piece bracket mounted to the top of the enclosure and an identical three-piece bracket mounted to the bottom of the enclosure. This mounting bracket option uses the same three-piece brackets as the "-MM" option, except the pieces are rearranged so that the flanges are on the side of the bracket instead of in the middle. The distance between the centers of each flange needs to be 10.25”.
