4.7-15 m, telescopic aluminium mast kit, motorised

TM 210 Un-Guyed Series

Comrod’s new generation of self-supporting telescopic masts incorporate an electrical drive for high speed extension/retraction.  The mast fits most vehicular and shelter platforms, and supports applications ranging from radio link communications to unmanned radar systems for border surveillance.  The system allows for rapid deployment and reduced vulnerability.  The optional computer control system enables an operator to raise and lower the mast from a remote location.

  • Automatic operation using wired or optional wireless remote control; manual emergency operation using hand crank
  • Optional computer control (patent pending) over CAN bus DS402
  • Ruggedised design for use in extreme environments
  • Positive retraction option for deployment slopes up to 15°
  • 220 VAC or 28 VDC drive system
  • Customer specified extended/retracted heights available
  • Optional cable management system for top load
  • Standard and customised top load mounting interfaces

The mast is made of extruded hexagonal aluminium alloy tubes of progressively smaller size and tracked telescopic action, with fittings in stainless steel.  The hexagonal sections move inside each other on plastic guide-ways which ensures excellent torsional resistance.  The mast is elevated by an electric motor connected to a ball-screw that lifts section 2.  The other sections are hoisted by steel cables.  The mast is fully self supporting and requires no additional staying, however the addition of top guys will further increase the mast performance.  In the event of power failure the mast can be manually deployed/retracted.

TM210 series masts are fully qualified to MIL-STD-810G
