Solar Mounting Booms

Solar Mounting Booms

We offer a range of high-quality mounting booms designed for fast and precise installation of meteorological sensors at any height on a variety of tower types.

Every boom kit consists of three main components:

  • Mounting hardware to secure the boom
  • A robust boom arm
  • A boom extension to mount your sensor of choice

There are four main categories of NRG mounting hardware:

Tubular Booms mount anemometers and wind vanes on NRG TallTowers. Our tubular booms come in a number of lengths, covering a wide range of measurement applications. Boom extensions are available to mount any NRG anemometer or NRG wind vane, as well as the WindSensor P2546-OPR Anemometer or Thies First Class Advanced Anemometer. The 2.4 m (95”) option is the standard boom used for wind resource assessment, and the 1.53 m (60.5”) boom is used to mount anemometers and wind vanes on our SRA System.

Lattice Booms mount anemometers and wind vanes on third-party lattice towers. Boom extensions are available to mount any NRG anemometer or NRG wind vane, as well as the WindSensor P2546-OPR or Thies First Class Advanced Anemometers. Lattice booms are available in 95” and 113” lengths and are compatible with lattice tower face widths of 18-24 ”.

Pyranometer Booms mount solar irradiance sensors on NRG TallTowers, including the 2.2m Tower used in our SRA System.

Additional Mounting Hardware includes Boom Extensions, Hose Clamps, and U-Bolts. These items are included in the boom kits wherever they are needed, and they can also be purchased separately.
