The CBES low profile button load cell is designed for use in compression measurement applications where height is at a premium such as press force measurement and vessel weight measurement.


  • Capacities: 0-50kg up to 0-50,000kg
  • Output: 2mV/V
  • Environmental Protection: IP65
  • Accuracy: <±0.15%
  • Integral load button
  • Option: IP67 or IP68 Submersible
  • Low Height & Compact – Easily fit where space is limited
  • Fast and Simple Installation – With built-in location holes
  • Superior Accuracy Guaranteed – From its integral load button
  • Submersible Versions Available – For marine and underwater applications
  • Customisation Available – To suit your specific application

They come with standard capacities from 0-50kg up to 0-50,000kg, with other capacities and special sizes available on request.

This button load cell has an integral load button to deliver optimum performance.  Plus, its built-in location holes offers you a fast and easy installation.

The CBES button load cell has an environmental protection rating of IP65, totally dust tight and low-pressure water jets protection from any direction.  The IP65 rating would be ideal for most industrial applications.  The IP65 rating comes as standard but can be increased to IP67 and even IP68 for long-term immersion to suit an underwater application.

We have previously designed special versions of the CBES low profile button load cell tailored to brake pedal force measurement and also for vessel weighing where the cells were permanently submerged.
