The DSCC series of pancake load cells are designed for weighing and force measurement applications and can operate in both tension and compression. They are perfectly suited for material and component fatigue testing applications where a high accuracy, low-profile device is required and forces are applied axially. The DSCC’s high frequency response makes it ideal for dynamic force and load measurement applications such as crash test walls.

The DSCC can be entirely customised to suit your specific application, with alternative threads, custom dimensions, counter-bored mounting holes, protection ratings of IP67 and IP68 submersible and higher capacities in excess of 5000kN possible.

For a pancake load cell with a rated capacity below 5kN for low-range measurements, please see our DSCRC low profile load cell which covers forces from 0-200N up to 0-2kN.
