Installing And Performing Initial Leveling of the Main Display Structure

Revised: December 3, 2014, OL-27038-01

This chapter describes the steps you perform to install the display structure and includes the following sections:


Caution The display structures are unstable during assembly. Use caution, and support all structures as required.


Caution Some system components have metal edges with hard angles. These edges are exposed until you complete system assembly. Use caution when you move around the system during assembly to avoid contact with any exposed system edges.


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.



Note The directions left and right refer to the assembly as you face the displays.


Installing and Leveling the Display Structure

To install and level the display structure, complete the following steps.


Step 1 Place the center display structure in its correct position in the room, then level the structure in the following manner:

  • Align the structure front to back.
  • Align the structure left to right.

See the levels in Figure 4-3 for leveling examples.

  • Use the adjustable feet at the base of the structure so that the distance between the top of the display support arm to the floor is the measurement that is shown in Figure 4-3.

Systems With a Wall-Mounted Reflector Wall Only

Position the center structure so that it is 16 inches (406 millimeters) away from the wall.

Systems With a Free-Standing Reflector Wall Only

Position the center structure so that it is a minimum of 22 11/16 Inches (576 millimeters) away from the wall.


Note Placing the wall closer to, or further from, the wall can result in fit issues or a non-working system.

Step 2 Place the left and right display structures in their its correct position in the room, then level the structures using the same procedures as the center structure.

Level the left and right structures relative to the center structure, so that all structures are the same height.


Note You can level the structures vertically; however a rough leveling is sufficient, because the vertical leveling will change after you install the displays onto the structure.

Step 3 Attach the connector plates to the lower tie-bar assemblies.

Use the M8 x 16mm pan head screws to attach the plates to the tie-bars.


Note Note the markings “C”, “R”, and “L” on the tie-bars; C is center, R is right, L is left. Use these to align the tie-bars.

Step 4 Attach the lower tie bar assemblies to the center structure by completing the following steps:

a. Position the bottom tie-bar assembly behind the lowest horizontal cross-piece of the center display structure.

b. Place the connector plates over the bottom beam of the display structure.

c. Attach the plates to the bottom beam with M8 x 16mm pan head screws.


Note Note the dowel pins on the front of the tie bars that are shown in Figure 4-6 and Figure 4-7; use these dowel pins to align the tie bars to the structure.



Note Do not fully tighten the screws until you perform final leveling of the entire display structure.

Step 5 From the rear of the structure, connect the tie bars to the center structure by inserting M8 x 35mm screws through the tie bars and loosely securing them.


Note Do not fully tighten the screws until you perform final leveling of the entire display structure.



Note Note that the longer screws attach horizontally through the tie bars.

Step 6 Attach the tie bars to the left and right display structure by completing the following steps:

a. Place the left and right structures in their approximate position.

b. Lift the center structure (with the bottom tie bars attached) over each side structure using the dowel pins on the left and right tie bars to aid in aligning the structures.

c. Screw the top plate down using M8x16mm screws.


Note Do not fully tighten the screws until you perform final leveling of the entire display structure.

Step 8 Using a laser level, perform initial leveling of the structure by leveling the horizontal cross-bars of all structures, then tighten all screws.

Tighten all horizontal screws first, then tighten all vertical screws.

Step 9 An alternative leveling method is to place a bubble level on all horizontal cross-bars.


Note Since the assembly is one unit, take care not to raise the leveling feet off the floor while raising or lowering the leveling feet.

Installing Seismic Brackets (Optional), Part Number CTS-TX9K-SEISMIC=

You can order an optional seismic bracket kit for the TX9000 and TX9200 that is used to secure the main display frame to a concrete floor in regions prone to seismic events.


Note These brackets are not included with the system and you must order them separately. The part number is CTS-TX9K-SEISMIC= .


The kit includes six rear seismic brackets that are secured to each of the six rear leveling feet on the main display frames, and two front seismic brackets that are secured to the front, left-most leveling foot on the left display frame piece, and the front, right-most leveling foot on the right display frame piece. Figure 4-13 shows the location of the front and rear seismic brackets.

Install the seismic brackets by completing the following steps:


Caution Do not install the seismic brackets until you have moved the main display structure pieces to their final position. You will not be able to move the main display structure pieces after you install the seismic brackets.


Step 1 Install the front seismic brackets by completing the following steps:

a. Position one of the two front seismic brackets at an angle to one of the outer-most leveling feet on the front of the left or right display structure pieces. It is important to position the bracket at an approximately 50-degree angle to the bottom bar of the display frame. If the bracket is too close to the bottom bar of the display frame, you will not be able to access the holes in the bracket with a drill. If the angle from the bottom bar is too wide, the seismic bracket will interfere with the installation of the rear facade panel. See Figure 4-14 for more information on how to position a front seismic bracket.

c. Mark the location of the seismic bracket holes on the concrete floor.

d. Remove the seismic bracket.

e. Drill holes in the concrete floor where you marked the locations of the seismic bracket holes using a 1/2” carbide drill bit. Drill to a depth between 3 1/2” (8.9 cm) to 4” (10.2 cm).

f. Blow the dust out of the holes using a can of compressed air.

g. Place the seismic bracket back into place, with the holes in the bracket aligned with the holes in the floor, and the bracket slot between the levelling foot and the display structure base.

h. Assemble two of the seismic anchors with nuts and washers so the top of the nuts are flush with the top of the anchor. Place the anchors into the seismic bracket and use a hammer to drive the anchor into the hole until the washers and nuts are tight against the bracket.

i. Use a 3/4” wrench to tighten the two anchor nuts. Figure 4-16 illustrates steps e. through i.

j. Repeat steps a. through i. for the other front seismic bracket.

Step 2 Install the rear seismic brackets by completing the following steps:

a. Position one of the six rear seismic brackets parallel to the bottom bar of one of the three main display pieces, on one of the rear levelling feet. It is important to position the rear seismic bracket parallel to the bottom bar on the display frame so that the seismic bracket does not interfere with the rear facade panel. See Figure 4-17 for more information on how to position a front seismic bracket.

f. Blow the dust out of the holes using a can of compressed air.

g. Place the seismic bracket back into place, with the holes in the bracket aligned with the holes in the floor, and the bracket slot between the levelling foot and the display structure base.

h. Assemble two of the seismic anchors with nuts and washers so the top of the nuts are flush with the top of the anchor. Place the anchors into the seismic bracket and use a hammer to drive the anchor into the hole until the washers and nuts are tight against the bracket.

i. Use a 3/4” wrench to tighten the two anchors. Figure 4-16 illustrates steps e. through h.

j. Repeat steps a. through i. for each of the remaining rear seismic brackets.
