    Applied Measurements DSCC compression load cell with digital readout is a complete, on-site, handheld, compression measuring system.  It is supplied ready calibrated to UKAS traceable standards with a 7 digit LCD high accuracy display, enabling you fast, portable, compression monitoring.

    Thanks to the DSCC load cell’s low profile design and the compact size of the TR150 handheld digital readout, the compression load cell with digital readout system is ideal to use where space is limited.

    The compression load cell with digital readout system comes with an IP65 dust-tight and splash-proof protection making it suitable for most industrial environments.

    This complete system can measure both tension and compression and in both weighing and force measurement applications. However, if you would prefer an s-type tension and compression load cell instead, see our S-type load cell with display.

    Thanks to Applied Measurements DSCC compression load cell’s stainless steel construction and high-frequency response, it is an ideal system for dynamic force and load measurement applications such as crash test walls.  Plus, the DSCC compression load cell has a dual-diaphragm design and central threaded through-hole so bending, off-axis, side-load/shear loads and torsion errors are kept to a minimum.

    The TR150 handheld 7 digits LCD digital readout is high resolution and protected to IP65 dust-tight, splashproof rating.  It features peak & trough capture, display update rates up to 25Hz, display hold/freeze, shunt calibration and optionally an RS232 serial data output. 

    The DSCC compression load cell can be completely customised with alternative threads, custom dimensions, counter-bored mounting holes, protection ratings of IP67 and IP68 submersible and higher capacities in excess of 5000kN possible.

    TEDS is now only available on our new TRX strain gauge display, which is in stock and available to buy online.

    Flexible Calibration Options

    The compression load cell with digital readout comes with a variety of calibration options to suit your application.

    Calibration options include:

    • Single direction i.e. compression or tension only
    • Bi-directional for tension and compression measuring
    • 2 separate engineering units i.e. Newtons or kg
    • 2 separate channels, in 2 different directions
    • UKAS traceable as standard
    • Full UKAS calibration

    To eliminate symmetry error the TR150 can be calibrated in different directions on the 2 separate channels one in compression and one in tension which will eliminate symmetry error and increase the accuracy.

    Its dual-range capability means it can be calibrated in 2 separate engineering units (i.e. Newtons and kg) or it can be calibrated to 2 separate load cells.

    We can also supply the DSCC pancake load cell with a BS EN ISO 376 calibration certificate for use as a reference standard.

    When a full UKAS certification is required, this is provided through our association with the appropriate UKAS-accredited laboratories including the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in London.

    Fixturing Options

    To get the best possible performance from your load cell we can supply optional rod end bearings and load buttons, please speak to technical sales.

    Load buttons and rod-end bearings are designed to align forces through the centre axis of the load cell, thus reducing the effects of extraneous forces and improving the load cell’s overall performance.

    • Load buttons are used where compressive forces are applied.
    • Rod end bearings are used where tensile forces are being applied.
