Ensuring proper operation of your backup power system is critical. Todays emergency standby diesel generator sets are designed to operate under a specific load level. Emerson Network Power offers Avtron Brand Load Banks which provide the complete solution with the most advanced and reliable controls in the market to provide proper loading of the backup power system.
Permanent, Portable, Containerized, Trailer-Mounted, Skid-Mounted, Radiator-Mounted, and Server Load Banks (HVAC commissioning) provide a continuous and accurate means for load testing. Emerson's Avtron Load Banks are available from 5KW up to 7MW in a single package. Available in a variety of voltages and frequencies, we have been the market leader in load bank technologies since 1953.
A Load Bank is a device which develops an electrical load, applies the load to an electrical power source and converts or dissipates the resultant power output of the source. A Load Bank is intended to accurately mimic the operational or “real” load which a power source will see in actual application. However, unlike the “real” load, which is likely to be dispersed, unpredictable, and random in value, an Avtron Load Bank provides a contained, organized, and fully controllable load. Consequently, a Load Bank can be further defined as a self-contained, systematic device which includes both load elements with control and accessory devices required for operation. Where the “real” load is served by the power source and uses the energy output of the source for some productive purpose, the Load Bank serves the power source, using its energy output to test, support, or protect the power source.
