The DDE series of miniature in-line load cells are designed for use in both tension and compression. Its low profile and compact design, along with its integral mounting threads, enables their use in applications with restricted mounting space, where other in-line load cells such as the S-beam load cells are too large.

The DDE’s low weight, low deflection and high natural frequency 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 can be seen working in applications such as automotive production, cable tension monitoring and suspension force monitoring.

Customised versions with different thread sizes, specific dimensions and interim capacity can be provided, please contact our technical sales team.
