Versatile cart accommodates rack mountable AV equipment
Eden Prairie, Minn., USA (JUNE 2014) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief, an industry leader AV mounting solutions, expanded the installer-friendly Fusion Series to accommodate extra large displays and touch panels. Visit Chief booth C6830 at InfoComm for a look at the cart and ceiling solutions for heavy installations.
“Extra large panels are being used more and more in commercial applications such as digital signage,” said Nathan Bohl, Director or Product Management. “These larger panels require specific solutions to not only hold the heavier weight, but also adapt to the overall size and shape of these larger monitors.”
The Fusion XL Cart has rounded edges and sleek aesthetics to fit well in corporate and classroom environments. The cart continues the tradition of the installer-inspired Fusion series by including features for easy customization.
The XPAU cart was designed for extra-large and touch panel displays from 55” to more than 100” and up to 300 pounds (136 kg). The cart also can be customized for dual monitor video-conferencing use with the dual monitor accessory and a camera shelf.
Other features include:
- A turn knob to allow a single user to easily adjust the screen height 48-65” (122-165 cm)
- Flexible cable covers for lay-in access anywhere along the column
- Room for internal storage of AV components, including hardware to vertically mount 2 RUs of AV gear
- Black or silver finish
Since large flat panels hang in the air like sails, they require stronger and more robust ceiling mounts. Fusion® Extra Large Flat Panel Ceiling Mounts offer perfect display positioning and flexible adjustments. The series includes single and dual pole versions depending on the size, weight and depth of the display. All Fusion mounts are UL tested and listed to ensure product safety.
The single pole drop ceiling mount is perfect for displays less than 5” (127 mm) deep. This mount swivels to any preferred viewing angle and has Centris® fingertip tilt technology for easy display adjustment. This mount holds up to 250 lbs. (113 kg).
The dual pole drop ceiling mount is specifically designed for displays over 5” (127 mm) deep. The dual poles provide a more stable system for extremely heavy and deep displays up to 300 lbs. (136 kg). Independent height adjustment at each pole also helps installers compensate for any ceiling irregularities.
Both versions include:
- Continuous tilt ranges with four set locking points to eliminate guess work when adjusting multiple screens
- Simple on/off connection for ease of installation and service
- Tool free screen engagement with optional padlock security
- Compatibility with traditional 1.5” NPT and new CPA pinned ceiling plates and column systems
Both the XCM1U and XCM7000 mounts come in back-to-back versions to create stunning digital signage installations in any location. The extra large solutions work well for digital signage applications, including control rooms, airports, restaurants and more.
The cart and ceiling solutions are now shipping, and available accessories include Fusion CPU holders, storage, and quick tie clips. Many Fusion accessories work across the ceiling, cart and bolt-down solutions.
