About Tripods, Towers, and Mounts
Our tripods and towers are sturdy instrument mounts designed to support sensors, wiring, antennas, and instrument enclosures. Both tripods and towers can be guyed (required for the twenty and thirty foot towers, recommended for tripods or ten foot towers subjected to severe winds).
Tripods have adjustable legs that are deployed more easily in various soil/rock substrates.
Towers allow higher measurement heights (to 30 ft), and the unguyed 10 ft model has a smaller footprint than a tripod.
Campbell Scientific also offers several mounts for attaching sensors and antennas to the tripod or tower.
