Hukseflux offers a full range of practical brackets for mounting atmospheric radiation sensors in all climates  and weather conditions. CMF01 is a versatile fixture allowing mounting a crossarm onto a vertical mast. It is typically used with SR05, SR15 and SR30 pyranometers with their mounting fixtures. It can also be used in combination with NR01 net radiometers and SRA series albedometers.

Options

There are other Hukseflux mounting options available for SR30, SR15 and SR05 pyranometers. They allow for simplified mounting, levelling and instrument exchange on a flat surface or a tube, such as a crossarm. These mounts are optional with the purchase of these instruments. Alternatively, PMF01 brackets may be used for mounting any Hukseflux pyranometer on a mast, crossarm or other mounting platform.

Description

Crossarm mounting fixture for pyranometers, albedometers and net radiometers

CMF01 is a practical mounting fixture for mounting a crossarm. The purpose of the crossarm  is to mount radiometers on a mast. The crossarm may serve to mount multiple instruments. The crossarm also creates some distance between radiometer and mast, so that the mast does not case a shadow and does not reflect radiation onto the instrument. A typical disctance between mast and radiometer is 1.5 m.

Most crossarms used in radiometry are mounted in the north-south direction so that the radiometer can be mounted towards the equator and a mast extending above the crossarm does not cast a shadow on the instrument.

In PV monitoring we also see crossarms oriented in the east-west direction to mount instruments for Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI), Plane of Array Irradiance (POA) and Reflected Horizontal Irradiance (RHI).
