The DSCC pancake load cell / low profile load cell by Applied Measurements is manufactured in stainless steel and is suitable for use in weighing and force measurement applications. Use the part builder below to get an instant price and delivery time.
The DSCC can operate in both tension and compression and are commonly used in materials testing and component fatigue testing applications for axial force measurements where a high accuracy, low-profile device is required.
The high-frequency response of the DSCC pancake load cells also makes them ideal for dynamic force and load measurement applications such as crash test walls. The high-speed analogue SGA amplifier is an ideal complement to the DSCC pancake load cell, offering a conditioned signal output of 4-20mA, ±5Vdc or ±10Vdc with a bandwidth of up to 6kHz.
Thanks to the pancake load cell’s dual-diaphragm design and central threaded through-hole, it is largely insensitive to bending, off-axis, bending, side-load/shear loads and torsion.
As with all Applied Measurements pancake load cell designs, the DSCC low profile load cell can be modified to suit your specific requirements, with alternative threads, custom dimensions, counter-bored mounting holes and higher capacities in excess of 3000kN possible.
Plus, for harsh, wet or humid environments we can make gel-filled pancake load cells rated to IP67. IP68 immersion versions are suitable for complete submersion and can also be offered on request. See Applied Measurements IP ratings guide for more details.
Our DSCC pancake load cell can be supplied with a BS EN ISO 376 calibration certificate for use as a reference standard.
If you require a pancake load cell with a rated capacity below 5kN for low-range measurements, the DSCRC low profile load cell covers forces from 0-200N up to 0-2kN.

Applied Measurements Load Cells in World’s First Regenerative Fatigue Test Facility
Developed by the University of Edinburgh, FASTBLADE is designed for high-quality, low-cost fatigue testing of tidal turbine blades, composite bridge sections and carbon fibre aircraft wing boxes and is the world’s first test facility that uses regenerative hydraulic technology.
Thanks to its cost-effective and accelerated testing, FASTBLADE reduces design risks, delivers rapid evaluation and enables faster certification and deployment of new products to the global market.
Applied Measurements DSCC precision pancake load cells are an integral part of FASTBLADE’s design. They are low profile, high accuracy and have a high-frequency response.

Creating 1000 Times More Power with Submersible Load Measuring Pins
The measuring device needed to withstand permanent underwater submersion. “Our load measuring pin’s stainless steel construction and ability to be customised to IP68 submersion rating made this the ideal choice for use in Deep Green’s control system”, explains Ollie Morcom, Applied Measurements’ Sales Director.
Applied Measurements’ Submersible Load Cells fitted to the World’s Largest All-Terrain Hexapod
Applied Measurements provided the load cells needed to monitor the force on individual legs to stop the Mantis (the world’s largest hydraulic hexapod robot) walking into a situation that is hazardous to its overall stability. Assisted by Applied Measurements’ compact and submersible DSCC load cells, the Mantis successfully travels over all slopes and uneven surfaces, traversing most types of terrain, even wading through water.
