BEKA introduce IP66 rear protection for panel instruments

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.

For further information including datasheets and ingress certificates please visit or phone the BEKA sales office on 01462 438301.
