Even though the new DBCL compact load cell from Applied Measurements is a small design, it has the capability of measuring up to 300 tonnes in tension and compression.
Its design with either male or female threads at each end of the body make the DBCL compact load cell ideal for measuring tension in ranges from 0-1 to 0-300 tons. For higher capacity requirements we can produce larger custom models rated to 1500 tonnes and beyond.
The compact load cell design will suit many applications including offshore, construction, building and testing fields.
The DBCL has a robust stainless steel construction with O-ring sealing to IP67 for use in harsh environments, together with a fully submersible IP68 version available for use at depth in both potable water and sea water.
With an overall accuracy of 0.2% and calibration traceable to UKAS, the DBCL compact load cell will accept overloads of up to 300% of rated load and is available with either integral cable or connector. To create a complete compact load measurement or control system, Applied Measurements also offer a comprehensive range of analogue amplifiers and digital displays to suit a variety of engineering applications.
