DDEN Loadcells Measure Forces Underwater

Applied Measurements has developed its DDEN series of loadcells for the measurement of tensile or compressive forces in underwater locations of up to 10m depth. The DDEN loadcell is said to be particularly suitable for cable-monitoring applications such as mooring tension in buoys, mast stays on yachts, or within the water industry during the clearing of blockages within underground pipes. Constructed from stainless steel and protected internally with an inert waterproof gel, the electrical termination is a tough IP68 multi-core cable that connects through an IP68 cable gland, to complete to fully submersible sealing.

DDEN loadcells are supplied with integral male threads for in-line mounting. This compact design means that the dimensions of the standard product remains the same throughout the range, with an outside diameter of just 44mm enabling it to be mounted in a variety of applications where conventional loadcells may not fit.

The DDEN, as with all other Applied Measurements sensors, can be supplied complete with control electronics and calibrated as a system. A version fitted with an integral amplifier is also available - the DDENA - to provide a conditioned voltage or current output signal. A three-year manufacturing warranty is supplied as standard.
