Most monitor arms will allow you to place your monitor in the best possible viewing position, but Humanscale's M7 lcd monitor arm offers far more. Its sleek styling and minimal parts makes the M7 monitor arm easy to set-up and use. The Humanscale M7 lcd monitor mount offers the ultimate in flexibility when designing a monitor arm solution for up to 8 monitors- whether you need an arm that will mount to your desk, your wall or an accessory rail.
The Humanscale M7 is totally modular, as is the Humanscale's top monitor arm, the Humanscale M4. Parts can often be mixed, retrofitted or replaced, so your custom monitor arm can be updated as your needs change. For the ease of fingertop height adjustment please see the Humanscale M4 Monitor arm.
Our recommendation would be to either use two articulating arms for your side monitors and a direct mount (no arm), or shorter link for your center monitor, or to use the crossbar which mounts all three monitors on the same horizontal axis. If you use a crossbar your monitors can only be height and depth adjusted in unison, whereas you have more adjustment options with each on a separate arm, including the ability to move the side monitors out of the way or pivot towards another person. Alternatively, you could opt for 2 monitors placed horizontally, with the third stacked on top.
We are always happy to help configure an arm solution for you.
The Humanscale M7 LCD arm is available in three different finishes. Black and silver are both standard colors. Polished aluminum is an upgrade and adds as much as 10 weeks to lead time.
For a triple monitor configuration where both monitors are mounted horizontally, you have two bracket options. The B3 allows for each monitor to be placed on its own arm and offers maximum flexibility for placement. Note that if you want to adjust the height of each monitor separately, you will need to add a Front End Adjuster (FEA) to each arm. You will want the center arm to be shorter, or you can opt for just the ball joint. You will not have much flexibility for depth adjustment on the center monitor.
Alternatively, you can use a B2 bracket with two link arms. You will need double link arms and can use either open links or folding links. The folding links will allow for a shallower placement.
B2 - bracket mount for use with crossbar
B3 - use with 3 arms or 2 arms and center ball joint
Humanscale offers two different styles of arm links - standard, open link and folding link, and two different lengths in for the standard link style. Each link allows for lateral (side-to-side) rotation. the 8" folding links can fold back completely with one on top of the other. the M7 arm can also be ordered without any links at all for direct mount applications that do not require the depth of a linked arm. Drawings illustrate total depth of each arm link option. These links are for the two arms connected to the outer monitors.
The center arm, like the outer arms, can be ordered with different types of links. Because the center monitor does not have much range of motion due to the monitors on either side of it, only arms with one link are available for the center monitor. Images of the different choices can be seen above in the Arm Links - Outer options. The types of links available for the center arm are:
Four different desk mount choices or available. Please choose "no desk mount" if you wish to order the M7 with a wall mount rather than a desk mount.
Post Height* (distance from top of desk mount to top of post)
|One Row||Two Rows|
* "Rows" refers to rows of monitors. If one or more monitors were arranged on top of each other, they would be mounted in rows.
Bolt Through (BT)
Secures your M7 post to your work surface via a bolt.
Heavy Duty Clamp Mount (CM)
An extra secure clamp for heavy, multiple-monitor applications. Not necessary for a single monitor, even larger monitors.
Direct Mount (DM)
Screws to the top of your work surface.
The wall stud mount allows the M7 to mount to a vertical surface. Please select "no wall mount" if you wish to order the M7 with a desk mount instead.
Standard Posts -
Standard posts feature a large outer tube and a narrower inner pole that does not slide into the larger tube - this post is fixed in height once mounted. These posts are heavy duty and great for heavier monitors or multiple monitor configurations but are only available for one row configurations. In other words, they are not suitable for applications where you want one or more monitors above another. Standard posts are only suitable for horizontal mounting.
Standard post options include:
Stackable Posts -
Stackable posts can be used for multiple monitor configurations where you wish to stack monitors in rows or for single monitor when you need a taller configuration. Stackable posts can support up to two rows of up to 3 monitors each. Stackable posts can be used with any mount on a horizontal surface, or with wall and panel mounts.
Options for horizontal mounts -
Options for vertical (wall and panel) mounts -
Humanscale M7 link arms do not offer any height adjustability, however the bracket may be positioned at different heights on the post, offering a "set it and forget it" height adjustment. Those wishing to adjust their monitor height should consider a Front End Adjuster. Positioned at the front end of the arm (just behind the monitor), an FEA offers the ability to raise and lower monitors easily. An FEA allows monitors to raise higher than the height of the post and is the easiest way to adjust the height of a monitor. Humanscale offers a universal front end adjuster in silver only, and each FEA supports up to 30 lbs on each arm.
Crossbars offer the ability to mount all three monitors horizontally so that they move up and down in unison. Each monitor mount features a ball pivot joint for independent viewing angle adjustment. Each crossbar requires 2 folding link arms for mounting and must be used with a B2 bracket mount for height adjustability. The crossbar is NOT compatible with the QR option part.
Three additional options are available for the M7 monitor arm. Each may be ordered individually, in combinations of two or all options may be selected.
