Mounting LCD display to provide swivel and tilt

Mounting LCD display to provide swivel and tilt

Mounting LCD display to provide swivel and tilt

I have an application where I need to mount a graphics LCD module (approx 5" x 6" x 1").  I would like it to be able to swivel/rotate 90 degrees left and 90 degrees right.  I also would like to allow it to be tilted at least 60 degrees.  What is the best approach to accomplish this?

RE: Mounting LCD display to provide swivel and tilt

You may wish to check SDI site.
They developed a rather advanced approach to the problem of mounting computer parts (including LCDs) in vehicles. They do it on the modular basis. Very interesting design.
Check this link, too:

RE: Mounting LCD display to provide swivel and tilt

Those are helpful links that do show swivel/tilt mounting of devices.  I am likely to have upcoming applications that could benefit from them.  In this instance though, I am looking for something small that can attach a small LCD module to a product console.  Something along the lines of how the displays on camcorders attach would be good.  These can swivel and tilt, yet provide for the electrical connections to the display.  I was not able to find anything like that on these sites.

RE: Mounting LCD display to provide swivel and tilt

That may work.  It is not quite what I envisioned, but the size and function look promising.  I will contact the company for more information.  Thanks for the help.
