Enclosure Type


Main Features

  • The RL Series Resistive-Reactive Load Banks offers a 0.80 power factor load.
  • Ideal for testing large generators, switchgear, transformers and UPS systems.
  • The structural skid with fork-lift pockets allows for portability and is ideal for shipyards, power plants, OEMs and data centers.
  • The perfect solution for regularly scheduled maintenance testing and commissioning of mission-critical standby emergency power systems where rated kVA, rated power factor and rated current testing is required.

Construction | Built to Last

The RL Series enclosures are constructed of galvanized steel with the highest quality durable powder-coat paint finish, and external stainless steel fasteners. All power, motor, and control connections are provided in a sealed thermostatically controlled heated compartment to limit any harmful effects of moisture and condensation. The enclosure is stationary-type, outdoor construction, to be installed and operated on a floor, roof-top, or concrete pad.  Forklift channels are provided within the base for ease of lifting and handling during installation.


Operator Controls

  •  Emergency Stop (E-Stop)
  •  Illuminated Main Power On/Off switch
  •  Illuminated Blower Start/Stop Switch
  •  Master Load On/Off switch
  •  Individual Load Step Switches
  •  Fault condition smart indicators provide operator display and load disconnect during Air-Flow Failure, Over-temperature, Motor Overload, and Load Dump

Operator Protection | When Safety Matters

The RL Series Load Bank comes equipped with an Emergency-Stop push button allowing the operator to take the unit off-line should a critical hard-stop condition occur.

Blower On, Motor Overload, Air-Flow Failure, and Over-temperature circuits disable all load steps during a fault condition with operator visual indicators, while the Load Dump circuit provides the operator visual indication if all load steps have been removed.
