A precision landing: Extension building opened

"We have managed a precision landing. And all this happened while production was running, without suffering a single day of downtime!" Despite a delay of a few months, the last hammer blow for the completion of our reconstruction and building extension we had planned long ago was done just in time to celebrate its opening in order to provide the urgently needed room, among other things, for our parts warehouse and our extended production automation. With proud and gratefulness, Managing Partner Rainer Beck welcomed more than 200 guests such as Mayor Johann Singer, representatives from both the municipal council and the municipal administration as well as a number of business partners, persons who were involved in the construction work and some members of the staff with their families. The second building stage has increased the net floor area from former 2,100 square metres to 4,000 square metres, giving more room for production, warehousing, offices and for the canteen. In addition, a separate training facility and a lounge are now available in the new building. Also, the separation between incoming and outgoing/shipped goods makes processes a lot easier. The existing building concept has been extended under both architectural and energy-efficiency aspects. Thus, further 'future-oriented' extensions can also be envisaged. Design and lighting, on the one hand, as well as ultra-modern building services using solar heat and absorption heat exchangers, on the other, are outstanding features of this building. A highly elaborate ventilation system for controlling the room temperature, additional cooling and heating by concrete core activation, grey water utilization, roof greening and many other things complement one another into a 'master plan'. For this entire energy concept, we are striving for being awarded the golden DNGB seal (DGNB - German Association for sustainable building). On the occasion of the opening of this new building, a lot of congratulations were received. Instead of any presents or gifts, Rainer Beck asked for donations in favour of the Children's Hospice in Stuttgart for the care of children that are suffering from terminal diseases. The result was a considerable sum of € 8,500 that Beck rounded up to € 10,000. A corresponding symbolic 'cheque' will be handed to the hospice management shortly so that the planned opening of a stationary children's hospice can become reality as soon as possible. At this point, we should, once again, like to give our warmest thanks to all the donors.

June 2013: Duct connection nipples with a new length of 80 mm

For a couple of years, insulation of ventilation ducts has become more and more expensive at an improved quality. This lets the thickness of insulation layers grow so that our present 65 mm ABS plastic duct connection nipples will often become too short. Beck is now facing this trend by introducing into the market new 80 mm plastic nipples from summer 2013. From June 2013, the nipples with their previous length of 65 mm, that have also been used in our Climasets under item number 6555, will be replaced by the new, longer nipples with an immersion depth of 80 mm. For our existing customers, this replacement will be automatically made in June and July. Any new customers will solely and immediately receive our longer duct connection nipples from June 2013 on.

Eight-range universal-type differential pressure sensor

Being capable of covering all measuring points within a system by one and the same device will practically make your work a lot easier. This is what a differential pressure sensor having a wide, adjustable measuring range is ideal for. Even after subsequent modifications such as replacing a filter, you can quickly select the proper measuring range without any cumbersome sensor replacement. That is why the new sensor from Beck-Druckkontrolltechnik even offers you eight different pressure ranges you can choose from with the aid of a rotary selector switch. To guarantee clear, linear response for each range the designers allowed the 984Q sensor to have automatic zero-point calibration. This is to reliably compensate any drifting as caused by ageing, temperature or by system-inherent influences. This new piezo-resistive sensor can measure differential pressures from +/- 0.5 to +/- 5.0 mbar within four different ranges. Another four measuring ranges from 0 to 10 mbar are also available for choice. The three-wire output can be configured by means of a jumper to obtain a signal of 0...10 V or of 4...20 mA (with a load of 20...500 Ohms). Also with the aid of a jumper, the user can choose between a linear or a square-rooted signal. The latter is, for example, useful for measuring volume flows. At a supply voltage of 24 VAC/VDC, the maximum current consumption, including an LED display, is 210 mA. The sensor's IP54 enclosure has a diameter of 85 mm with an installation height of 58 mm. Two 6 mm tube ports for the pressure connection as well as M 16x1.5 or M 20x1.5 cable unions for cables and stranded wires of up to 1.5 mm² in size ensure easy fitting at the place of installation. The transmitters are in conformity with EN 60770 and EN 61326 as well as with RoHS according to 2002/95/EEC.
