CDF Miniature Low Profile - Compression Load Cell

CDF Miniature Low Profile - Compression Load Cell

Quick Overview

The CDF subminiature button load cell is designed for compression measurement applications. Measuring just 15mm in diameter and 8mm in overall height, the CDF is one of the smallest standard button load cell that we offer. If you need to measure lower or higher forces, the CDFM3 miniature button load cell is available in capacities from 0-100N right up 0-20kN and is slightly larger at 30mm diameter and 12mm in height. The CDF subminiature button load cell is ideal for retro-fitment into industrial machines and process systems for monitoring and control purposes, or for incorporation into new machine designs. Ranges 100 to 20kN. Standard output is 2mV/V with options for inline amplifiers for standard 4-20mA or voltage outputs and handheld display for immediate readout.

The CDF range of low profile miniature load cells is designed for the measurement of compressive forces. The CDF is equally suited for both Force Measurement and Weighing applications alike. Its compact size means that it can be fitted into the smallest of space envelopes and is often retrofitted. The small physical size has made it very attractive in many industrial process measurement applications for monitoring or control purposes. It's equally suited and performs well in a wide range different research and development applications.
