SAX2TO10 - BeppoSAX 2-10 keV Survey

HEASARC

Overview

This catalog presents the results of a 2 - 10 keV BeppoSAX survey based on 140 high galactic latitude Medium Energy Concentrator Spectrometers (MECS) fields, 12 of which are deep exposures of ``blank'' parts of the sky. The limiting sensitivity is 5 x 10^-14 erg/cm^2/s (or mW/m^2) where about 25% of the Cosmic X-ray Background (CXB) is resolved into discrete sources. The log N - log S function, built with a statistically complete sample of 177 sources, is steep and in good agreement with the counts derived from ASCA surveys.

Provenance

This database was created by the HEASARC in December 2000 based upon CDS Catalog J/A+A/362/799.

Parameters

Name
The 1SAX Catalog Designation for the source.

Alt_Name
An alternative designationfor the source, if previously known.

RA
The Right Ascension of the source, in the selected coordinate system. In the original table this was given in J2000 coordinates to a precision of 0.1 seconds of time.

Dec
The Declination of the source, in the selected coordinate system. In the original table this was given in J2000 coordinates to a precision of 0.1 arcseconds.

LII
The Galactic Longitude of the source.

BII
The Galactic Latitude of the source.

Flux
The X-ray Flux in the 2-10 keV energy band, in erg/cm^2/s (or mW/m^2), calculated assuming a power-law spectrum with an energy index of 0.7.

Source_Class
A classification of the source, if available.

Redshift
The redshift for an (extragalactic) source, if available.

Ref_Redshift
The reference for the redshift value.

ID_Flag
This parameter is set to 'L' to indicate that the distance between the BeppoSAX and the catalogued position of a source is between 1.2 and 2 arcmins and therefore the association is likely but not certain.

Class
The HEASARC Browse classification, based upon the source_class parameter.
