What is BalanceBox?

A BalanceBox is a height adjustable wall mechanism for Interactive LEDs or Flat Panels that is designed and manufactured in Europe. What is unique about the BalanceBox is that it uses the principal of “balance” in order to move the screen up and down. It does this by placing tension on a set of strings that are inside the BalanceBox unit. Tension is applied to the springs up to the point that the spring itself can hold the weight of the Interactive Flat Panel – at that point, it is “balanced”. What then happens is that the user is able to move the screen up and down as he or she is assisted by the load being born by the internal spring. That means that the flat panel feels as light as the feather to the user. 

The idea is that any user, even the smallest of children can raise and lower the largest of flat panel themselves using the BalanceBox – cleaver isn’t it! More recently, they have also launched an electric version of this which does not have springs inside but is powered by a linear actuator to raise and lower the screen. 

Due to the nature of the mechanism needing to be ‘balanced’ the weight of the Flat Panel that is going to be lifted is important. It also means that a 75” from one manufacturer does not necessarily use the same BalanceBox as a 75” from another customer. The internal springs on the BalanceBox need to be suited to the weight of the panel. I guess it makes sense, a heavy screen on a weak spring means the spring will never be able to take the load and “balance” will never be achieved. 

This can lead to confusion about what parts are needed for a particular screen so in this guide, we will aim to clear up the confusion.

What are BalanceBox used for?

Is everyone the same height? Easy this one, the answer is no! So what height do we mount the Interactive LEDs I hear you ask? Not such a simple question to answer so this is where height adjustable wall mounts come into play. In general, a height adjustable wall mount allows you to move the LED up and down with a certain amount of travel so that you can make it easier for both the taller users as well as the shorter users of the LED. These wall mounts that are height adjustable can either be manually adjusted or they can be electric. There are pros and cons of each – but the decision in general is that electric tends to be a lot more expensive. The range of height adjustable wall mounts that we offer with our TouchIT interactive LEDs are called BalanceBox.

Your Guide to Different Types of BalanceBox

BalanceBox 400, 650, 650-130 eBox – Its so confusing. What’s the difference? Let’s take a look at each of these in turn and try and remove any confusion.

What is BalanceBox 400?

The somewhat confusing names are actually quite logical. BalanceBox as part of the product name refers to the “spring mechanism” which makes an Interactive Flat Panel move up and down. The “400” part refers to the amount of movement the mechanism can offer, in this case, 400mm or 15.75” of vertical travel.

What are the other numbers then associated with the part codes? This again is quite a logical answer when you understand how these are created. As the unit needs to “balance” the weight of the touchscreen, the weight or spring strength is important. The number that follows the 400, so for example, BalanceBox 400-70 is the weight limit of that spring inside that model. 

Balance Box 400-40 this is suitable for an Interactive Panel weight of between 50.7 to 94.7lbs  or 23-43kg

Balance Box 400-70 this is suitable for an Interactive Panel weight of between 90.4-152lbs or 41-68.9kg

Balance Box 400-90 this is suitable for an Interactive Panel weight 145.5-209lbs or 66-95kg

These models look the same from the outside, it is the spring on the inside that is different. 

Part Number Description Weight Range
480A13 BalanceBox® 400 – 40 incl wall cover 23-43 kg

(50.7-94.7 lbs)

480A12 BalanceBox® 400 – 70 incl wall cover 41-68.9 kg

(90.4-152 lbs)

480A14 BalanceBox® 400 – 90 incl wall cover 66-95 kg

(145.5-209 lbs)

What is BalanceBox 650?

BalanceBox 650 is really the big brother of BalanceBox 400. It uses the same spring principal but it offers 650mm of vertical travel or 20.65”. This is “heavy duty” model and is suitable for the larger Interactive Flat Panels. That said, you really need to look at the weight as there is a little bit of overlap between models. 

When considering the weight, you also need to think that the VESA attachment (we will come onto this in a second) has a weight associated with it, as too does any integrated PC, cameras sound bars that you are adding to your IPFD. You need to do accurate calculation on the weight and if you are not sure, please do see advice before purchasing.

Balance Box 650-80 this is suitable for an Interactive Panel weight of between 75 to 154.3lbs  or 34-70kg

Balance Box 650-130 this is suitable for an Interactive Panel weight of between 147.7-280lbs or 67-127kg

Balance Box 650-180 this is suitable for an Interactive Panel weight 207.2-372.6lbs or 94-169kg 

Part Number Description Weight Range
484A07 BalanceBox® 650-80 including wall frame and application frame cover 34-70 kg

(75-154.3 lbs)

484A08 BalanceBox® 650-130 including wall frame and application frame cover 67-127 kg

(147.7-280 lbs)

484A09 BalanceBox® 650-180 including wall frame and application frame cover 94-169 kg

(207.2-372.6 lbs)

What is BalanceBox VESA?

BalanceBox VESA is the bracketing interface that connects your Interactive Flat Panel to your BalanceBox. Without this interface, it is not possible to mount your Interactive Flat Panel to the BalanceBox. Therefore, when you purchase a BalanceBox, regardless of model, 400 or 650, you also need to purchase one of these. 

Now, because we are dealing with two different “strengths” of BalanceBox which in turn are dealing with different sizes and weights of Interactive Flat Panels, there are two different VESA options. One is for the 400 model, and the other is for the 650 model. They do they same thing, but are rated according to the weight they need to bear. Makes sense right? We think so.

Universal VESA Bracket 481A70 

The Universal VESA Bracket is an interface bracket to mount a flat panel onto five BalanceBox® products with a load capacity up to 180 kg/396 lbs. The Bracket is suitable for touchscreens from VESA connection 200 x 200 mm up to VESA connection 800 x 600.

The bracket fits onto the BalanceBox®400 (480A1x) and the BalanceBox®650 (484A0x)

The Universal VESA Bracket can also be used without the BalanceBox® by mounting directly onto following accessories:

BalanceBox®400 Mobile Stand                         (481A31, 481A47)

BalanceBox®400 Floorsupport                          (481A42)

What is BalanceBox Wings? 

BalanceBox® Wings – the touch screen whiteboard frame

Essentially, this product is a winged cabinet that houses an Interactive Touch panel that when you open it out, it gives you dry-erse market boards on either side of the panel

The range comprises of modular standardized products in three sizes, WINGS-4 for a double-sided pivoting whiteboard surface on the left and right side of the touchpanel.  WINGS-6 for 2 fixed whiteboard surfaces and 2 double-sided pivoting whiteboards, two on each side of the Interactive Touch panel. You can then choose whether you opt for an electrical height adjustable version with the eBox or a manual one with the BalanceBox 650. 

You can use the tray below the Interactive Touch panel to move the Interactive Touch panel up and down with only a featherlight touch, both students and teachers can reach the full potential of the technology. The high quality whiteboard surfaces can be erased over and over again but can also be used with magnets to turn them into a bulletin board or scrap book project. But remember to keep those magnets away from your Interactive Flat Panel as magnets and screens don’t play nicely together!

Can I have the BalanceBox on a Mobile Stand?

Yes you can. As you would expect there is a pattern here so the mobile stand portion of the equipment needs to match the BalanceBox portion. EG, you buy a mobile stand that matches the BalanceBox 650 and a different model to match the BalanceBox 400.

Mobile stand for BalanceBox®400 481A71

The Mobile Stand can be used with the manual BalanceBox®400 height adjustable mount system or with the VESA interface bracket (481A70) mounted directly on the stand. The Mobile stand is suitable for panels up to 86” diagonal.

Dimensions (W x H x D): 1075mm (42.3″) x 1960mm (77)” x 800mm (31.5”)

So what do I need to buy in the most basic sense?

If you are buying a BalanceBox to go on your wall, you need the model that can accommodate the weight of your Interactive Flat Panel, and a VESA Mount to match – simple! Two products you are buying.

If you are buying a mobile product, you need to purchase a BalanceBox in either 400 or 650 depending on the weight of your screen, the VESA Mount to match that model so that you can attach this to your Flat Panel, and then the mobile stand that matches the model of BalanceBox you need. Phew! Three products you are buying for this configuration. That wasn’t that difficult was it?

What is eBox? 

eBox is a great product. This is an electric height adjust able wall mount that will raise and lower your screen at a touch of a button. It comes in three varieties that we show above.

e·Box® Mobile stand

Its a motorized height adjustable mobile mount for interactive displays 

The e·Box® mobile stand is an electrically height adjustable mount for displays and mobile touchscreen stands. The motorized mount display is the fastest and safest technology on the AV market today. The double-column design guarantees the stability needed to work with interactive touchscreens up to 86” diagonal with a 254 Lbs (115 kg) total weight capacity. The wired remote control unit (no batteries) can be placed at a convenient and easy to reach location, allowing the user to adjust the height of the screen safely and quietly. The motorized stand has an anti collision feature to prevent accidental pinching, when the system is moving and senses an obstruction it will stop and retreat.

On the backside of the integrated VESA mounting box (max 600×400) a lock-box is located where the electronic controls are safely located, this lock-box can be used to place a mini-PC, thin-client PC or NUC. This means for this model there are no extra parts that you need to mount your screen, it will mount directly onto the stand.

The 26” travel will guarantee full screen access for all users, the product is ideal for wheelchair users. With the optional accessories the product can be equipped for use with a laptop or keyboard tray, teleconferencing equipment, a document camera or a soundbar. Pretty cool huh?

e·Box® Wall mount

A motorized double-column height adjustment mechanism. 

The e·Box® wall mount is the electrically height adjustable mount for displays and mobile touchscreen stands. The motorized mount display is the fastest and safest technology on the AV market today. What makes this model particularly interesting is the fact that it will take the lad instead of the wall. This means you can mount a heavy screen using this mechanic onto a non load bearing wall. The double-column design guarantees the stability needed to work with interactive touchscreens up to 86” diagonal with a 265 Lbs (120 kg) total weight capacity. The wired remote control unit (no batteries) can be placed at a convenient and easy to reach location, allowing the user to adjust the height of the screen safely and quietly. The motorized mount display has an anti collision feature to prevent accidental pinching: when the system is moving and senses an obstruction, it will stop and retreat. The motor is the fastest it’s class at 1.5” (38mm) per second and has a soft start/stop feature for smooth operation.

On the backside of the integrated VESA mounting box (max 600×400) the electronic controls are safely located here, this box can be used for cabling or to place a mini-PC, thin-client PC or NUC. Again, there is no additional part required here.

 e·Box® Tilt & Table or Fusion 2

Tilt & Table mobile double-column motorized height adjustable floor stand. 

The TouchIT Fusion 2 is the future of K-12 interactivity. Available for TouchIT Rapide LED Displays in 65″ and 75″, the TouchIT Fusion 2 is three products in one! An Interactive Easel, an Interactive Table and an Interactive LED – Choose how you want to use the product at the touch of a button – perfect for any K-12 classroom. The product is actually called the eBox Tilt, but as TouchIT have had the Fusion product for many years, we actually brand this as the Fusion 2. At the heart of the product is the LED, and the Fusion 2 stand is then electrically able to raise, lower and tilt the product flat – pretty cool huh!

What is even cooler with this product is the speed that it can do it – much faster than anything else on the market but also, the fact that the product comes with Anti-Collision. What this means is that if the product comes into contact with anything during its transition, it will stop and retreat This means that trapping fingers for example is not possible (or extremely hard we should say as anything is of course possible)

This Tilt function enables the user to set the screen in 60 degrees. This makes the e·Box® Tilt & Table electrical mounting solution it the perfect solution for all users to work on their own height in a group or as an individual.

Like the other two models, it comes with the double-column design which guarantees the stability needed to work with Interactive Touchscreens up to 75” diagonal with a 220 Lbs (100 kg) total weight capacity. The wired remote control unit (no batteries) can be placed at a convenient and easy to reach location, allowing the user to adjust the height and tilt angle of the screen safely and quietly. The motorized stand has an anti collision feature on the height adjust motors to prevent accidental pinching: when the system is moving and senses an obstruction, it will stop and retreat.

Again, the height adjust motor is the fastest in its class at 1.5”per second travel speed (38 mm per second) and has a soft-start and soft-stop. Vesa interfaces for dimensions 400×200 up to 600×400 are integrated in the support frame for the touchpanel. On the topside of the columns there is an enclosed box where the electronic controls are safely located, this lock-box can be used to place a mini-PC, thin-client PC or NUC.

The 26” travel will guarantee full screen access for all users, while the 90 degree tilt feature will allow multiple users to access the screen at the same time (depending on the touchpanel specifications) the product is ideal for wheelchair users

Together with the optional accessories the product can be equipped for use with a laptop or keyboard tray.
