  • Customisation Available to Suit Your Application
  • Excellent at Monitoring Fast Changes Thanks to its Low Deflection


Applied Measurements DDE miniature in-line load cell is suitable for use in both tension and compression and offers a very low profile body coupled with integral mounting threads to allow use in applications with restricted mounting space where other in-line load cell designs such as S-Beam load cells are too large.

The DDE’s small size means that weight is kept to a minimum, this, in conjunction with its low deflection, results in a high stiffness assembly and makes the load cell suited to the measurement of fast changes in load and high-frequency transients.

The DDE miniature in-line load cell is currently being used in many applications including automotive production, cable tension monitoring and suspension force monitoring.  Customised versions with different thread sizes, specific dimensions and interim capacity can also be provided if required.

For a submersible in-line load cell please see Applied Measurements DDEN fully submersible load cell which has a protection rating of IP68 suitable for long-term immersion.
