Description

The DBB Z-beam load cell / S-beam load cell is suitable for use in tension or compression.  The design lends itself to both force and load measurement applications such as those found on tensile testing machines, suspended hoppers and geotechnical test equipment, as well as a wide range of other general purpose applications.

The sensing principle employed on the Z-Beam load cell varies, with a dual bending beam design on the DBBE model which covers capacities from 50kg up to 500kg and a shear web design on the DBBW model which cover ranges from 0-500kg to 0-5000kg.  Both sensing principles offer inherently high accuracy and enable us to guarantee performance of better than ±0.03% of rated capacity.

If you require a Z-Beam load cell with capacities of less than 50kg or greater than 5,000kg, our DBBSM series of S-Beam load cells covers load ranges from 0-1kg (10N) up to 0-30,000kg (300kN).  Meanwhile, if you need to fit into a restricted space, our DBBSMM range of miniature S-Beam load cells will fit the bill.

The DBBSM S-beam load cell is ideal to verify the tension readings from the aircraft tension meter due to their superb accuracy of 0.03% of the rated capacity.

Case Studies

Accurate S-Beam Load Cell Measures Cable Tension of Light Aircrafts

Checking tension of an aircraft tension meter using DBBSM close up

In light aircrafts the flight control system must have correctly adjusted cables to maintain correct rudder movement, smooth direction and precise level and control of flight. Calmet Laboratory Services used a DBBSM-1000kg s-beam load cell to check the accuracy of the aircraft tension meters when applying tension to a cable.

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.
