Tachometers simplify speed measurement in hazardous and safe areas

BEKA associates extensive new range of Tachometers simplify speed measurement and display in both hazardous and non-hazardous areas. Featuring panel and field mounting models which can be configured to function with most sensors, they have bold easy to read displays simultaneously showing speed and total time that the monitored machinery has been operating. All models can be supplied with an internally powered display backlight, dual isolated alarms, a synchronous isolated pulse output and a 4/20mA isolated output.

Two sizes of panel mounting enclosure and display are available. All have IP66 front of panel protection and the range includes a model with a rugged 316 stainless steel enclosure and a toughened glass window for applications in severe or marine environments.

The field mounting Tachometers have an IP66 impact resistant GRP case with stainless steel fittings suitable for use in harsh industrial environments, including off-shore applications. Accessories include an internally powered backlight, dual alarms, pipe and panel mounting kits and a stainless steel legend plate that can be supplied laser engraved with customer specified information.

In addition to general purpose Tachometers, intrinsically safe models have ATEX, IECEx, US and Canadian certification allowing worldwide installation in gas and dust hazardous areas. For applications in Zone 2 or 22, Ex nA and Ex tc approval permits installation without the need for Zener barriers or galvanic isolators which significantly reduces the installation cost.

Although well documented and easy to configure on-site, all models can be supplied configured to customer's requirements with a slide-in scale card showing user specified units of measurement and instrument identification for no additional charge.

BEKA instruments are supported by a three year guarantee and for customers wishing to evaluate an instrument on-site, a free three month sale or return evaluation service is available.
