Description

The DBBSMM miniature S-Beam load cell is suitable for use in tension and compression and lends itself to both force and load measurement applications where the space to mount a standard size load cell is not available.

All of our miniature S-Beam load cells offer high accuracy of better than ±0.03% of their rated capacity and can be optionally gel-filled to provide a waterproof device suitable for applications such as wave tank monitoring.

If you require a miniature S-Beam load cell with a capacity greater than 50kg, we can manufacture special versions of the DBBSMM with measuring ranges of 100kg, 150kg, 200kg and upwards on request.  Please contact our expert sales team using the form in the sidebar to discuss your miniature s-beam load cell requirement in detail.

If you are not space-restricted, our DBBSM series of load cells covers load ranges up to 0-30,000kg (300kN).

Case Studies

Universal Fabric Tension Tester for All Fabrics and Styles

Fabric Tensile Strength Tester Rig Frame

The Challenge - Accurately Measure Fabric Tension on Any Style of Furniture. Fabric strength testing guarantees the fabric being used on furniture meets the high quality needed for durability, comfort and support. Choosing the wrong type of fabric can lead to fabric tearing, loss of customer satisfaction and a decrease in sales and profit. Find out how our miniature s-beam load cell, intuitive4-L digital indicator and industrial LVDT displacement sensors were used to determine fabric strength.

Force Measurement Determines The Effect of Girth Tension on Horse Gait

Equine Tension Load Cell

Using electrical systems for the measurement of mechanical forces is by no means limited to machines and laboratory based applications. In her recently completed research thesis ‘Girth Tensions and their Effects on Equine Stride Characteristics’, Sue Wright of Moulton College Northampton used load cells, motion sensors and GPS amongst other technologies to measure and record the tension within the girth strap used to hold the saddle in place.
