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, lightning rod, grounding rod, and cable tie kit.
The J-bolt kit is required to assemble the tower to its concrete pad.
|Material||Hardened drawn 6063-T832 aluminum|
|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||11.8 kg (26 lb)|
Maximum Wind Load Recommendation
Wind load endurance is affected by quality of anchoring and installation; soil type; 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) for gusts|

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 in.
With regard to height, these two mounting structures are similar:
There are some notable differences:
