Overview: The Sanus Systems VisionMount HDPro Series XF228 is a full-motion wall mount for
extra-large flat panel TVs and monitors. The mount can tilt, swivel, and extend
in every direction so you can attain the perfect viewing angle. This mounting
bracket, black in color, features a built-in cable management system to conceal
and protect your cables.
Capacity: The XF228 is designed for 42" to 84" flat panel TVs. It has
a weight capacity of up to 175 pounds.
Bolt Pattern: The monitor
bracket has multiple vertical slots and can accommodate vertical hole spacing
(on the back of the TV) up to 21.625" (550mm). The unit can expand
horizontally for extra large TVs. The vertical brackets can slide along the
horizontal bars, accommodating a horizontal hole spacing from 5.4" (137mm) to
nearly 34" (860mm). The XF228 comes with
M4, M5, M6, and M8 size bolts of differing lengths to mount the brackets to your TV.
VESA: Given the mounting
bracket's range of motion, it will accommodate the following VESA hole patterns
in accordance with industry standards set by the Video Electronics Standards
- VESA 800 x 400
- VESA 600 x 400
- VESA 400 x 400

Virtual Axis: Sanus' patented Virtual Axis tilting technology
allows effortless viewing angle adjustment without the use of tools by balancing
the weight of the TV on itself. You can tilt the TV up or down with just the
touch of a finger, and easily reduce glare and reflections caused by lights or
windows. Dual arms allow large TVs to easily extend, retract, tilt, and swivel
up to 28" from the wall. The arm assembly shifts left and right on the wall
plate so the TV is always centered, even if the wall studs are not. Once mounted, the TV's range of motion is as follows:
- Tilt: -15° to +5°
- Swivel: -75° to +75°
- Roll: -5° to +5°
- Extend: up to 28" from wall
ProSet: Once installed, the TV may not appear completely
level with its surroundings. ProSet technology lets you make micro-adjustments
to height and level after mounting to ensure perfect positioning.
QuickConnect System: The QuickConnect system allows the
mounting head to snap onto the arm assembly with one easy movement and
unlock with the push of a button. This allows you to attach and detach the TV to
the wall mount arm quickly and easily.
Cable Management: The XF228's FollowThru in-arm cable
management channel protects and completely conceals all cables without
inhibiting movement, even through the elbow.
Optional Speaker Mount: The Optional Sanus VisionMount VMA202 soundbar
speaker mount (item #
051VMA202) attaches directly to this wall mount, allowing you to mount your
soundbar, digital processor speaker, or center channel with no additional
drilling under your TV. The VMA202's extruded aluminum and heavy-gauge steel
construction is strong and sturdy, and holds speakers up to 35 lbs.
