DSCRC Series - Pancake/Low Profile - Bi-Directional Load Cell

DSCRC Series - Pancake/Low Profile - Bi-Directional Load Cell

Quick Overview

The DSCRC load cell is a pancake load cell designed for weighing and force measurement applications and can operate in both tension and compression. The DSCRC load cells are ideal for material and component fatigue testing applications. Range is 0-2,000N, higher ranges are available from the DSCC series load cells. Standard output is mV/V, but options are available for inline amplifiers for standard 4-20mA or voltage outputs.
View Options


The DSCRC series are low profile pancake type load cells suitable for both Weighing and Force Measurement applications. Constructed from Stainless Steel, offering excellent corrosion resistance and improved zero force pass through performance over conventional steel products. The load cell's design provides excellent resistance to extraneous forces, such as bending, side and torsional forces.

The load cell is used widely in material and fatigue testing applications, where a low physical height is required and forces are applied axially. The mounting bolts for all capacities are counterboard to prevent obstruction from the bolt heads. High frequency response is also a benefit with this load cell for dynamic force measurement applications, which is also complimented with excellent fatigue resistance.
