BExBG05 Explosion Proof Xenon Beacon 5 Joule


The flameproof BExBG05 Xenon beacons are suitable for Zone 1, 2, 21 & 22 applications. Approved to IECEx, ATEX, Ex EAC and INMETRO standards.

The BExBG05 5 Joule beacons robust construction enables installation in the harshest of environments. Additional features include automatic synchronisation on multi-beacon systems and stainless steel guard and mounting bracket as standard. 
The BEx range features enclosures manufactured from corrosion proof, marine grade copper free LM6 aluminium with a chromate and powder coat finish. All models have two M20 cable entries, large termination areas containing in & out terminals and an ingress protection of IP66/67.
