WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING A MONITOR ARM
NUMBER OF MONITORS
ESI offers solutions for as few as one to as many as six monitors. Should the needs of the user change, the EVOLVE series can easily be modified in the field to accommodate additional monitors and changing work environments.
Monitor arms offer various types of height adjustability. The most user-friendly option is dynamic height adjustment which allows the user to adjust the monitor height quickly and easily without the need for tools.
WEIGHT OF MONITOR(S)
ESI's standard monitor arm configurations support the average monitor which weighs between 8-16 lbs. For heavier monitors such as Apple Cinema Displays®, iMacs® and the new VESA‑compatible all-in-one PC’s, ESI recommends the EDGE-MAX series.
SIZE OF MONITOR(S)
Most users prefer to have their monitors side-by-side as close as possible with no gap between them. The versatility of the ESI EVOLVE series allows up to 32" monitors to fit side-by-side. Configurations that include a SLIDER will provide additional horizontal adjustability, allowing monitors of varying sizes to fit together seamlessly.
SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE WORK SURFACE
Shallow work surface depths 24" or less are best suited for monitor arm configurations with fewer limbs. For applications that require extended reach, ESI recommends an EVOLVE configuration with the maximum number of limbs. When positioning two or more monitors side-by-side in a 90º corner, the maximum monitor size will be reduced. Customer Service representatives are available to discuss your specific application and requirements.
