BEKA 4-20mA Manual Setpoint Stations / Setpoint Generators

Provide Local Control in Hazardous Locations & Extreme EnvironmentsSet point stations [set point generators]

  • 4-20mA loop powered
  • Up/Down push buttons and/or rotary encoder for control
  • Easy-to-read display in engineering units
  • Full 5-digit readout plus bar graph
  • Five configurable presets
  • ETL U.S & Canada, ATEX and IECEx I.S. certifications
  • IP66 ingress protection
  • Optional backlighting

Setpoint stations enable manual 4-20mA control from within a process area. Typically used for proportional control valve actuation, speed adjustment, etc., these setpoint stations are loop powered, and can be calibrated in engineering units. Intrinsically safe hazloc and general purpose versions offer identical features and optional backlighting.

New E-series models with push button control have a full 5-digit display plus bar graph. They can also be used with an optional rotary encoder for separate panel mounting. Up to five regularly used settings may be configured for quick access, and the rate of change relative to input can be adjusted to avoid process upset.
