Beka introduces new rate totalisers with a variety of enclosures

Beka associates have introduced third generation rate totalisers, which provide an easy-to-read display of rate and total flow in the same or different engineering units from almost any pulse output flowmeter.

They devices feature two inputs, linearisation, small enclosures for applications where panel space is limited, and larger digits in the 144x72mm models.

A rugged 316 stainless steel model is included for use in marine environments, and all models have IP66 front of panel protection.

Options include an internally powered display backlight, isolated synchronous pulse output, isolated 4/20mA output, and dual alarms.

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 installation cost.

The rate totalisers can be supplied configured to specific requirements with a slide-in scale card showing the specified units of measurement.
