Permanent Load BanksAugust 22, 2016
Load Testing for Continuous Uptime Outdoors
Load banks provide contained, organized and fully controllable load and help ensure proper operation of your backup power system. Permanent load banks are designed for continuous operation in outdoor environments.
They are ruggedly constructed units typically rated between 10KW and 3000KW. These load banks feature fully supported Helidyne™ resistor elements which are designed for no cool down period even under a full load condition. These units are provided with a gasketed and heated enclosure to protect contactors and other components from condensation-related problems. Remote control panels are provided with each unit, ready for 19" rack mounting or installed in a NEMA-type wall-mount enclosure.
Some are installed on a rooftop or concrete pad while others are integrated on rugged structural skid with provisions for overhead, four-point lifting.
These units are designed for testing AC generating systems, UPS, production line and laboratory environments. To provide mobile testing, some of these load banks are even mounted on a trailer.
Permanent load banks are available in various configurations, installation types and capacity ranges.
