The limiting sensitivity is 5x10-14erg/cm2/s where about 25% of the Cosmic X-ray Background (CXB) is resolved into discrete sources. The logN-logS function, built with a statistically complete sample of 177 sources, is steep and in good agreement with the counts derived from ASCA surveys. Description: File table contains the name of the sources, their coordinates (J2000.0) and the measured flux detected by the BeppoSAX MECS instrument in the 2-10 keV energy band. Additional information (other designation, class and redshift) if available in literature is also provided. File Summary:

Note (1): A question mark indicates that the distance between the BeppoSAX and the catalogue position is between 1.2 and 2 arcmins and therefore the association is likely but not certain. Note (2): BeppoSAX positions (accuracy about 30arcsec)
