You can mount WMT700 on a 30‑mm (1.18‑in) or a 60‑mm (2.36‑in) pole mast. The WMT70FIX mounting kit contains U bolts for both kinds of pole masts (2 pcs each).
You can place WMT700 either on the side or on top of the mast. When selecting the mounting position, take into account:
- Other equipment installed on the mast (for example, air terminal)
- Cable routing (inside or outside the mast)
- Make sure that the cable is firmly connected to the sensor.
Assemble the WMT70FIX mounting kit, and attach it to the mast with the U bolts.
When mounting the sensor on the side of the mast, make sure that the mounting kit is positioned at the top level of the mast.
Check that the mounting kit is level, and tighten the U bolts slightly.
Do not tighten the bolts too much at this stage. You still need to rotate the mounting kit to align the sensor after the installation.
- Lift the sensor up.
Holding the sensor from its body, run the cable through the WMT70FIX mounting kit, and slide the sensor into the mounting kit.
To avoid misalignment, turn the sensor until the mounting screw reaches the far end of the slot, and tighten the screw. Tightening torque 5 Nm.
- To align the sensor, rotate the mounting bracket.
