Robust technology and high efficiency – this characterises our series of customer-specified load resistors and load banks. We distinguish between load resistors with a continuous power rating up to 100 kW and load banks that cover a performance range of up to 5 MW.
The resistor elements used can be made up of various resistors using various resistance and stainless steel alloys. In general, the separate resistor units are cooled by an axial fan. Through an optional PLC controller, the different load levels are switched on and off based on performance. It is also possible to operate the system remotely and store and transmit specific data about the load bank to a distant or external control centre.
With a combination of various plug-ins, the load resistors and load banks can be adapted to customer requirements and be used for testing and discharging battery systems, for electrical test in laboratories, and for carrying out load tests of motors, generators, ground power units, diesel generators, and gas turbines.
