Load Banks for Rent or Hire

A portable load bank provides a stable, consistent and repeatable electrical load that can be accurately controlled, recorded and measured. The goal of load bank testing is to recognize potential problems in a controlled environment, rather than during an actual failure. Load bank testing is a critical part of any maintenance program for emergency generators sets, uninterruptible power supplies, medical facilities and infrastructure, HVAC systems and data center operations.

Without regular load bank testing, the risk of generator failure during an emergency increases dramatically. The most practical means of ensuring power system reliability is through regular testing with a portable load bank. This provides a consistent and repeatable electrical load.
