Southco will introduce the AV-D30, a new dynamic mounting arm, at Compamed 2009 in Dusseldorf, Germany as part of Medica 2009.

The AV-D30 arm allows the user to achieve precise over-arm operating efforts while securing ‘no drift’ positioning, even in applications with dynamic loading.

Offered in a range of standard configurations, the new modular-designed AV series provides swing-out extension and tilt-and-swivel monitor positioning, largely for imaging equipment incorporating most flat-panel displays.

Southco’s Ulrike Sturman said: ‘The growing medical sector is making major advances in areas such as screening and early diagnosis and there is an increasing need for accurate positioning technology for a wide range of specialist equipment.

‘By integrating its positioning control technology into the AV-D30, Southco brings the ability to precisely regulate the force required to move the arm.

‘This precise control ensures that the arm will hold its position, even when subject to braking loads in transportation applications or bumping into mobile cart applications.’ Other key features include ease of customisation and, because it folds to within 50mm of the wall, there is minimal protrusion within the stowed position.

In addition, snap-open wire channels eliminate the need to ‘thread’ wiring and the arm is available in a range of motion stops to limit travel where needed.
