In order to start putting together your mobile device mounting solution, first, you need to choose a holder. There are a variety of options when it comes to holders; you can either decide to mount to your existing cradle or dock using a Ram Ball, directly mount to your own device with a Snap Mount or mount the device using the Ram X-Grip and Slider Tab solutions.

  1. Select arms:

Once you have selected the ideal holder, you can start thinking of picking a Socket Arm to build onto it. Don’t worry about a thing, as there is a large variety of lengths, diameters, styles and materials from which to choose. But it doesn’t end here! There is more to be happy about, since all arms are available with a standard twist knob, steel locking knob, Pin-Lock Security Knob and Key Knob.

  1. Select a base to be mounted to your application:

You are nearly finished! All you have left now is choosing a base to attach to your application. Some of the most popular ones being the RAM Ball, Tough-Claw, Suction Cup, RAM Clamps, RAM Plate and Vehicle and Forklift Mount.

  1. If additional components are required:

I know, I know… We said 3 steps! This is the last one, we promise. Depending on your selection or if you need power or additional components might be required.

Know Your AMPS From Your VESA Hole Patterns

Know Your AMPS From Your VESA Hole Patterns

If your enterprise mobility depolyment involves the use of devices in vehicles it is a great idea to provide the user with a properly installed vehicle cradle.

Some enterprise mobility device manufacturers such as Motorola do a good job of designing their own cradles. Third parties such as Brodit produce a wide range of product for many devices.

Physically installing the cradle and making sure it is safe electriacally and in use is the subject of a further post. Before you get that far you will need to consider how to attach the cradle to the vehicle itself.  This is where it becomes useful to know your VESA from your AMPS hole patterns

VESA What is it?

The good news is that the VESA standard is used almost exclusively for mounting flat screen televisions and PC monitors. Typically hole patterns for flat panel displays can be any of the following.

  • 75 mm x 75 mm
  • 100 mm x 100 mm
  • 200 mm x 200 mm
  • 400 mm x 400 mm

The bigger the screen the beefier the bracket.

 

AMPS What is it?

Know Your AMPS From Your VESA Hole PatternsThe AMPS hole pattern is also an industry standard configuration. It consists of four holes located in a rectangular pattern spaced at 30.17 mm by 46.05 mm. It is common for the AMPS pattern to consist of multiple holes to allow vertical or horizontal implementation. For hand held and tablet sized devices the vast majority of cradles and brackets such as the RAM Mount System will use the AMPS hole pattern.

 

This video from GPSCity.ca describes the AMPS hole pattern perfectly.
