BC125 Series (Stainless Steel)

Explosion Proof Beacon

The BC125 range has been approved for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and very harsh environmental conditions.

Typical applications are Oil and Gas, On-shore and Offshore, Chemical, Petrochemical, Refineries & Marine locations etc.

These beacons have a choice of two types of light source: either Xenon (strobe) with multiple flash rate and power ratings or an LED array with three status type indication options and two power ratings. The design allows for termination inside the enclosure.

The units also have the ability to be fitted with a telephone initiation function and can be used as the second ring output indicator for telephones when installed in very noisy environments.
