To mount your monitor or TV to a wall or desk stand, you need to know about VESA mount sizes. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) sets standards for mounting interfaces, including the size and spacing of mounting holes on the back of your display.
VESA mount sizes are measured in millimeters and indicate the distance between the mounting holes. For example, VESA 75 x 75 means that there are four mounting holes on the back of your display spaced 75 millimeters apart in both directions.
The most common VESA mount sizes
The following are the most common VESA Mount Sizes you’ll come across:
The first number in the VESA size represents the horizontal distance between the mounting holes, and the second number represents the vertical distance in millimeters. Here you will find an overview of all VESA sizes in inches.
It’s important to note that not all displays support VESA mounts, and even if your display does, it may not support all VESA mount sizes. Be sure to check your display’s specifications to confirm its VESA mount compatibility.
What about VESA MIS-D, MIS-E, and MIS-F?
In addition to the standard VESA mount sizes, there are also VESA MIS-D, MIS-E, and MIS-F mounts. These are VESA mount standards designed for specific types of displays, such as all-in-one computers, medical displays, and industrial displays.
VESA MIS-D is designed for all-in-one computers and includes VESA 75 x 75 and VESA 100 x 100 sizes.
VESA MIS-E is designed for medical displays and includes VESA 200 x 100, VESA 200 x 200, VESA 300 x 200, and VESA 300 x 300 sizes.
VESA MIS-F is designed for industrial displays and includes VESA 200 x 100, VESA 200 x 200, VESA 300 x 200, VESA 300 x 300, VESA 400 x 200, VESA 400 x 300, VESA 400 x 400, VESA 600 x 400, and VESA 800 x 600 sizes. These mounts are designed to support displays in harsh industrial environments. In these environments, they may be exposed to dust, moisture, and extreme temperatures.
In conclusion, understanding VESA mount sizes is essential for mounting your display on a wall or desk stand. VESA standards ensure that you can easily mount your display and that it remains secure and stable. Be sure to check your display’s VESA mount compatibility and choose the right mount size for your needs, whether you have a consumer display or an industrial one.
