    Applied Measurements DBBSM S type load cell with display is a complete, portable tension and compression measuring system.  It is supplied ready calibrated to UKAS traceable standards with the TR150 7 digit LCD high accuracy display, enabling you precise, on-site, force and load monitoring.

    Thanks to our S-beam load cell’s high accuracy of <±0.03% and the display’s fast update rates of up to 25Hz, this system is ideal for high accuracy force and load measuring in tension and compression applications such as tensile testing machines, suspended hoppers and geotechnical test equipment.

    The DBBSM S type load cell itself has a dual bending beam sensing design on capacities up to 1000kg and a shear web sensing design for capacities 2500kg and up, offering excellent accuracy at a  specification of ±0.03% of rated capacity of better.

    Applied Measurements TR150 handheld 7 digits LCD digital readout is high resolution and protected to IP65 dust-tight, splashproof rating.  It features peak & trough capture, display hold/freeze, shunt calibration and optionally an RS232 serial data output. 

    The handheld display has a dual-range facility which allows for calibration in two different engineering units, i.e. Newtons and kg.  Alternatively, it is possible to calibrate two separate s-beam load cells with a single TR150 display.  Please contact sales.

    Plus, to further ensure optimum performance, rod end bearings and load buttons are available for the s-beam load cell to give you the best loading conditions for your application, for more information about these options please download the DBBSM datasheet below.

    If you require a lower measuring range, try our miniature DBBSMM S type load cell with measuring capacities of 0-1kg up to 0-50kg, which are available ex-stock and are compatible with the TR150.

    TEDS is now only available on our new TRX strain gauge display, which is in stock and available to buy online.

    We are very happy with the recent purchase of S-beam load cell and handheld load cell indicator. The ease of which to order exactly what we needed, and the expertise shown by your staff made the whole experience event free. Delivery time was very good and when received load cell and indicator, installation was quick and simple unlike the last item we received from another supplier. We will definitely be using Applied Measurements for any further purchases if required.

    For our new larger mast range with large head loads we needed an instrument with a higher range up to 500kg and in a hurry, so that’s how we decided upon your product.

    Flexible Calibration Options

    The DBBSM s-beam load cell with display comes with a variety of calibration options to suit your application.

    Calibration options include:

    • Single direction i.e. compression or tension only
    • Bi-directional for tension and compression measuring
    • 2 separate engineering units i.e. Newtons or kg
    • 2 separate channels, in 2 different directions
    • UKAS traceable as standard
    • Full UKAS Calibration

    To eliminate symmetry error the tr150 can be calibrated in different directions on the 2 separate channels one in compression and one in tension which will eliminate symmetry error and increase the accuracy.

    Its dual-range capability means it can be calibrated in 2 separate engineering units (i.e. newtons and kgs) or it can be calibrated to 2 separate load cells.

    When a full UKAS certification is required, this is provided through our association with the appropriate UKAS-accredited laboratories including the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in London.

    Fixturing Options

    To get the best possible performance from your load cell we can supply rod end bearings and load buttons.

    Load buttons and rod-end bearings are designed to align forces through the centre axis of the load cell, thus reducing the effects of extraneous forces and improving the load cell’s overall performance.

    • Load buttons are used where compressive forces are applied.
    • Rod end bearings are used where tensile forces are being applied.
