Load Banks

Load banks

Main parameters

Nominal voltage
Number of steps and power rating per step
Type of ventilation: natural convection or forced air
Mounting position: horizontal or vertical (forced air only)

Additional parameters

Thermal drift: the difference in ohmic value of the resistor elements between cold and hot condition.

Ingress protection degree, IP20 / IP21 / IP23
Auxiliary components

Enclosures can be made of galvanized steel DX51D+Z275-M-A-E, mild steel painted in any RAL color or stainless steel types AISI 304 or AISI 316.


Load banks are used for testing equipment such as (emergency) generators and UPS systems or also as dummy loads to maintain the generator at a minimum temperature.

Load banks are offered from a few kW up to 10MW and from working voltages of a few hundred volts up to 36kV.

Load banks are built from several steel-grid building-blocks making it easy to split up the load bank into (many) smaller loads.

Load banks are made for both indoor and outdoor use in IP classes up to IP 23. Higher IP ratings are problematic as it becomes more difficult to dissipate heat.
