ATEX Dust Certification for BEKA Instruments

BEKA associates have extended the ATEX intrinsic safety certification for their field mounting instruments to include Group II, Category 1D dust approval. The range includes loop powered 4/20mA digital indicators, rate totalisers, counters, timers, tachometers, clocks, batch controllers, serial text displays and fieldbus displays. All have a robust IP66 GRP enclosure with a separate terminal compartment and include accessories such as backlights and alarm outputs. This extended approval allows the instruments to be used in the presence of most combustible industrial dusts in Zones 20, 21 or 22 at ambient temperatures between -20 and +60°C.

The BEKA loop powered 4/20mA indicators and the Fieldbus Display also have international IECEx gas and dust certification, plus FM intrinsic safety and nonincendive approvals allowing these instruments to be installed in almost any hazardous area worldwide.

Datasheets, certificates and application guides are available from the BEKA associates sales office or may be downloaded from www.beka.co.uk
