The CDFM3 miniature button load cells are designed for the measurement of compressive forces where space is a limiting factor. Its compact size means it can be fitted in the smallest of spaces and is often retrofitted, while the M3 threads in its base make fixing the load cell in position a simple task. It is suited for both force measurement and weighing applications alike. It is used in many industrial process measurement applications for monitoring and control purposes.

The CDFM3 Is the second smallest button load cell we offer only 30mm in diameter and 12mm in height. For a smaller button load cell see our CDF miniature button load cell.

The CDFM3 series of load cells can be supplied with a range of our transducer instrumentation such as digital indicators, signal conditioners, digitisers or telemetry systems and can be supplied calibrated as a complete system, please contact our technical team.
