Configuration Options

The 1.53m Tubular Boom mounts sensors away from NRG TallTowers to minimize tower-induced flow distortions. 

The robust, dual-beam support structure is made from galvanized steel to resist corrosion. The boom comes with a self-aligning mounting bracket that is easily hose-clamped to the tower, ensuring that the sensor maintains a 90-degree vertical orientation.

This boom can mount one NRG 200P Wind Vane, NRG 40C Anemometer, NRG 40H Anemometer, or NRG Class 1 Anemometer right out of the box. WindSensor Adapter Kits and a Thies Adapter Kit (see Boom Extensions) are available for mounting the WindSensor P2546-OPR Anemometer and Thies First Class Advanced Anemometer. Our 16” Stub Mast and 13” Z Mast Boom extensions can be used to lengthen the boom.
