VESA 100 MOUNTING ADAPTER FOR SMART-TERMINAL ENCLOSURES (ON REQUEST)

The VESA standard is used in many suspension arms and wall suspension systems to attach devices easily and securely. On request, and in conjunction with the SMART-TERMINAL enclosure, OKW can now offer a 2-part VESA adapter kit made of anodized sheet aluminum in accordance with the VESA 100x100 mm standard. With this VESA adapter SMART-TERMINAL enclosures can also be mounted directly on commercially available suspension arms and wall suspension systems with 100x100 mm mounting holes.

Installing the VESA adapter is quite simple: slide it sideways into the existing grooves on the rear side of the enclosure, then screw the plastic end covers and TPV seals - or the aluminum end plates - to the enclosure profile. The adapter can also be used to mount the unit on a wall (using the wall plate from the 2-part set). Cables can be fed through both the VESA adapter and the wall plate using the corresponding cutouts, thus allowing the unit to be connected at the rear.

The new kit further enhances the versatility of the SMART-TERMINAL enclosure in use, making it easy for the user to operate and read displays and controls.

Talk to our sales team if you would like to specify this adapter for your SMART-TERMINAL enclosures.
