Sorry, I haven't done any beam testing in ages. Whatever the number of damage entries appears in the combat logs on a single beam firing cycle is the number of damage pulses a beam outputs. So if you observed 4 damage entries on 1 beam shot, then that's the number you should be working with.

EDIT: I forgot to mention -- it is possible that the polarized tetryon beam array is still bugged. Reason: Using http://www.stattrek.com/online-calculator/binomial.aspx, I found that the polarized tetryon beam array's 2.5% proc rate per damage pulse results in 9.63% net activation chance per firing cycle. The other possibility is that beams are only checked for procs once per firing cycle. Are you able to run the same test using a tetryon cannon or turret?
