4.7-10 m, telescopic aluminium mast kit, motorised

TM 170 Un-Guyed Series

The combination of proven Comrod telescopic mast technology and the Force XXI requirement for a rugged un-guyed mast to carry a heavy sensor package has produced the electric powered mast TM 170.  The mast is made of extruded hexagonal and circular aluminium alloy tubes of progressively smaller size and tracked telescopic action, with screwed on or riveted fittings in stainless steel. The sections move inside each other on plastic guide-ways which provide the masts with excellent torsional resistance.  The mast is elevated by an electric motor connected to a ball screw that lifts section 2.  The other sections are raised by a rope system. No additional staying is required.  Ten and fifteen metre variants of the TM 170 mast system are also available.
