BEKA & Exloc welcome you to stand 1339-F in the UK pavilion.

Founded in 1984, BEKA associates is an independent British company dedicated to the design and manufacture of panel or field mounted indicators and displays. Rugged IP66 enclosures, backed by a 3 year warranty, for general purpose or hazardous area applications. Product certification provided by FM & ETL for USA and Canada, ATEX and IECEx for EU.


 Press Releases

  • BEKA associates have recently received US and Canadian intrinsic safety and nonincendive certification for their new compact BA304G and BA324G 4/20mA loop powered field mounting indicators. These instruments, which already have IECEx and ATEX approval, feature a robust IP66 impact resistant GRP enclosure with an 8mm thick armoured glass window, but retain the easy to read displays from the larger models.

    The BA304G has four 34mm high digits and the BA324G has five 29mm high digits plus a 31 segment bargraph. Both have a wide operating temperature of -40°C to +70°C and include a square root extractor, sixteen segment lineariser and internal calibrator. For no additional charge, instruments are supplied calibrated to customer requirements with a novel slide-in scale card showing the units of measurement and tagging information.

    Accessories include a backlight that may be loop or separately powered, dual alarms with isolated solid state outputs, stainless steel legend plates and a pipe mounting kit.

    For applications in Zone 2 the BA304NG and the BA324NG, in addition to IECEx and ATEX approval, now have AEx nA certification for use in the USA and Ex nA certification for use in Canada. This permits installation without the need for Zener barriers or galvanic isolators which significantly reduces installation cost. General purpose non certified models are also available.

  • BEKA associates extensive new range of Timers and Clocks simplify process timing in both hazardous and non-hazardous areas. Including panel and field mounting models which can be configured to function with most sensors, they feature easy to read dual displays.

    These versatile instruments can be configured on-site as a Timer or as a Clock. As a Timer they can measure and display the elapsed time between external events using sensors connected to one or both inputs. Optional dual control outputs enable the instruments to control external devices. Control cycles can be repeated continuously or a specified number of times with a configurable delay between each cycle.

    When configured as a Clock the instruments display local time in twelve or twenty four hour format and can be externally synchronised. The optional control outputs enable two external devices to be turned on and off at pre-set times twice in each twenty four hour period.

    Three types of panel mounting enclosure with two display sizes 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.

    Field mounting Timers and Clocks 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, 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 instruments, 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.

  • BEKA associates have introduced a new accessory which provides impact and IP66 ingress protection for the rear of their panel mounting 96 x 48mm instruments and their 60 x 105mm rugged stainless steel panel instruments. The kit allows the extensive range of BEKA panel mounting loop powered indicators, rate totalisers, counters, timers and tachometers to be safely mounted in an open panel, or within a cubicle which may accumulate condensate, or be subjected to mechanical damage.

    The BA495 rear cover is manufactured from 1.5mm thick 316 stainless steel with a silicone sealing gasket. It has two M20 entries for cable glands, one of which is supplied fitted with an IP66 removable blanking plug. The kit has been ingress tested by a UKAS accredited testing laboratory to confirm that it provides IP66 protection for the rear of the instrument. All BEKA panel mounting instruments have IP66 front of panel protection and are supplied with a gasket which seals the joint between the instrument and the panel in which it is installed.
