Truss Monitor Mounts

A Guide to Choosing the Right Truss Monitor Mounts

If you are going to use our Truss Monitor Mounts at a trade show exhibit you will more than likely also want to take advantage of using media such as computers, or flat screen TVs to make an impact and deliver your message. Here is a helpful guide to determining the right monitor mount for you. We have three different truss monitor mounts that work with our Trussworks F10 (flat), T10 (triangular), S10 (square) traditional truss as well as our EZ6 & EZ12 Modular truss, and our Hyperlite systems.

It can be a bit confusing trying to determine if your monitor will work with a certain mount! The key is VESA compatibility. All of our mounts are Flat Display Mounting Interface (FDMI), also known as VESA Mounting Interface Standard (MIS) or simply a VESA mount. If you have ever dealt with installing monitors for shows, you might have heard the term “VESA compatible” or “VESA standards”.

What is VESA?

Don’t worry, it’s not a brand. You are more than likely safe with your Sony or Toshiba. VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) is an organization that consists of video electronics industry experts. They set standards and strive for uniformity in the video electronics industry, making it easier for people like us to make products that adapt to a spectrum of electronic products you might have including LCD and Plasma TVs, computer monitors, etc. The majority of flat-screen monitors will be FDMI/VESA compatible.

Is your monitor Vesa mount compliant?

It comes down to measurements. Because makes and models are always changing, referencing either will not do the job. Monitors come in a wide array of bolt patterns so the best solution is to take out your ruler and measure the bolt pattern on the back of your screen.

Here are some helpful guidelines for determining whether your monitor is VESA compatible and which mount you need:

The VESA mount MIS-D configuration has four screws arranged in a square, with the horizontal and vertical distance between the screw centers being 100 mm X 100 mm or 75 mm × 75 mm.

The MIS-E&F configurations are typically used for larger monitors and can be any one of the following configurations: 200 mm X 200 mm, 400 mm X 400 mm, 600 mm X 200 mm, 600 mm X 400 mm, 800 mm X 400 mm, 280 mm X 150 mm.

Most smaller monitors (up to 27″) use the MIS-D configuration of 100 mm X 100 mm or 75 mm X 75 mm and will fit on our LCD-AV & new LCD-V & LCD-H mounts.

Most monitors up to 47″ will use the MIS-E & F configurations of 600 mm or less and will fit on the new LCD-V & LCD-H mounts.

Here is a breakdown of our 3 different mounts available for our hollow steel truss (including traditional F10,T10, S10, EZ6, EZ12, EZ612 and Hyperlite). All of our mounts come with a variety of mounting bolts.

LCD-V & LCD-H

LCD-V for vertical mounting onto a truss legend and LCD-H for horizontal mounting onto a truss span.

This MIS-D, E&F compatible mount uses the top two mounting bolts and has swivel adjustment and a small amount of pitch adjustment. It includes two interface bars to allow mounting of monitors with VESA patterns from 100 mm to 400 mm. The monitor weight limit is 80 lbs. and is available in a range of standard colors.

LCD-AV

For vertical mounting onto a truss leg: This MIS-D compatible mount features an articulating arm, only available in silver and is used for smaller monitors with a weight limit of 25 lbs. This mount uses all 4 mounting bolts and is only compatible with these VESA sizes: 100 mm X 100 mm & 75 mm X 75 mm

PLASMA-V & PLASMA-H

Like our standard LCD, this MIS-E&F compatible Plasma mount can be mounted both vertically and horizontally and is available in all standard colors. The Plasma mount uses the top two mounting bolts and has swivel adjustment with adjustable interface bars to allowing monitors with VESA patterns from 200 mm to 800 mm. Geared towards larger monitor units, this mount can support up to 150 lbs.
