To make accurate measurements, solar sensors must be mounted where they are not shaded, and either level, or at a specific angle. To achieve this, typically a leveling base and a mounting stand are required.
The CM225 mounting stand is used to attach one solar radiation sensor to a horizontal crossarm or vertical mast (1.0" to 2.1" OD). An LI2003S, 18356 Leveling Base, or similar base and leveling fixture may be required depending on the sensor selected.
The CM255 is used for most applications that require mounting a solar sensor at adjustable angles.
The CM255LS is an adjustable-angle, adjustable-plane mounting stand. The installation technician can now securely bolt the sensor to the mount. Then, using the sensor's bubble level as a reference, the technician levels the plane of the mount by adjusting the built-in leveling bolts. Next, because of the overlapping design between the two components of the bracket, as the mount is pivoted, or tilted, the correct azimuth is maintained─assuming the crossarm is properly installed with a north-south orientation.
A levelling base may also be required to suit the specific sensor you are using.
