Aluminium Telescopic Masts and Accessories

Bild Portabelmast mit Windmesser
Example of a WiMo 9m aluminium mast with a wind speed instrument.

The telescopic masts are manufactured from sideways slotted aluminum tubes; the mast can be extended to any length and securely locks into place by means of a massive clamp. The maximum allowed extended length is marked by a color ring approx. 20cm before the end of each tube. There is no fixed stop which makes it advisable to approach the marking slowly when extending the telescopes.

These masts are ideally suited for portable applications due to the low weight and the telescopic mechanism. When setting up the mast please pay special attention to the clamping length; the clamping length of the mast must be at least 1/6th of the extended length, or at least 1 meter at the minimum. When extending the mast more than 6 meters measured from the uppermost clamping point additional guys are mandatory.

The tubes are made of weather-proof aluminum alloy. The tubes are tapered by 5 mm and the tube thickness is 2mm. Please refer to the following table for weight and dimensions. The stated additional forces refer to a horizontally applied force at the tip of the extended mast - without guys and a mast clamping length of 1/6th. The calculation includes the inherent load at a wind speed of 50km/h (which is equivalent to a wind force of 7).

Quick Release Clamps for Portable Masts

Mast PM6XL/1.5 with 4 Quick Release Clamps

Option for the portable masts offered by WiMo. Usually these masts require a flat or socket wrench, with the quick release clamps you can raise and lower the masts without any tools.

Even with limited space these quick clamps can be easily used, because the lever can be adjusted at any position. Just pull out and release the lever, the strong spring latches the lever at the desired position. In contrast to the usual tommy screws (star grip screws) the quick release clamps allow for secure tightening of the clamp without using too much force.

How many quick release clamps are needed for a mast?
The table above shows a column "Number of Segments". The particular mast requires this number of segments minus one clamps. Example: The mast "PMXL 6/1.5 (18300.6XL)" consists of five segments, you would need four quick release clamps.

Of course older WiMo masts can be retrofitted with these quick release clamps, as well as any other mast which uses M8 screws.

Guy clamp

Smart construction which finally avoids that the guy wires and antenna cables get entangled. That happens most often at the topmost guying.
Solid metal disc, the gap for the cable guide is wide enough (25mm) to accomodate most rotor connectors. The same product can be used to guy a mast in several heights: included in the shipment are bushings for 50, 40, 30 and 20 mm mast diameter. Of course the mast can still be rotated ín the guy clamp.

Mast tripods

Mast Tripods

Mast tripods are well suited for portable applications because of the ability to quickly achieve a temporary installation. The tripods are folded together in one move without any tools. When collapsed the dimensions are very compact; the diameter of the large tripods only amount to 250 mm when collapsed. The masts are fixed within the tripods by means of two large tripod heads and secured by star head screws. The tripod heads as well as the legs are made of aluminum.

Universal, small collapsible mast base STU-70

The STU-70 is uses a square aluminium with a size of 90 x 90mm. It comes with four support struts, which rest horizontally on the ground when mounted, and which can be mounted in different ways.

Using 2 struts results in a tilting mast base, on which a car can be parked. Mounting all 4 struts starlike results in a free-standing mast base; the struts can be fixed to the floor with weights like concrete slabs, or with the help of the included mounting brackets and with screw pegs.

At last the support struts can be mounted vertically and then set in concrete or put in the ground; the latter however is only possible in light sandy soil. Guying is necessary in any case, of course.

The mast base is suitable for holding portable masts or other tubes made of aluminium or steel as well as for clamping glass-fiber reinforced masts with diameters of 40-70mm. The included clamping piece helps that glass-fibre masts are not stressed with a point load, which could easily crush the masts. Instead the load is distributed over a larger surface

Dimensions of the mast base when collapsed are 550x90x90 mm and fits in every car trunk. The support struts and all necessary hardware parts can be placed inside of the mast base, the ends are closed by two easily removable aluminium plates. Total weight is 4.7 Kgs.
