The CBES low profile button load cell is designed for use in compression measurement applications where height is at a premium such as press force measurement and vessel weight measurement. Request pricing today.
They come with standard capacities from 0-50kg up to 0-50,000kg, with other capacities and special sizes available on request.
This button load cell has an integral load button to deliver optimum performance. Plus, its built-in location holes offers you a fast and easy installation.
The CBES button load cell has an environmental protection rating of IP65, totally dust tight and low-pressure water jets protection from any direction. The IP65 rating would be ideal for most industrial applications. The IP65 rating comes as standard but can be increased to IP67 and even IP68 for long-term immersion to suit an underwater application.
We have previously designed special versions of the CBES low profile button load cell tailored to brake pedal force measurement and also for vessel weighing where the cells were permanently submerged. If you need a customised button load cell for your application please contact our technical sales team who will be pleased to discuss your application in detail.
All of our button load cells can be supplied with digital indicators, signal conditioners, digitisers or wireless telemetry systems from our full range of transducer instrumentation. The links below show our most popular load cell instrumentation for use with the CBES.

5 Reasons This May Be the Best Load Cell for Plate Bearing Tests
Micro Geotechnical, an in-situ testing company, needed to accurately monitor the bearing capacity of the ground under a given load, to determine the safe bearing capacity of the soil.
The measuring instruments would need to be accurate and precise, with the ability to withstand the harsh outdoor environments of their in-situ plate bearing tests.
So, we offered them Applied Measurements button load cell CBES and our handheld indicator and here's why...
