  • Electronic Load Banks
    Electronic Load Banks
    Our new line of electronic load banks was designed to test aerospace generators in production or R&D environments. Unlike other electronic load products, our load banks use custom FPGA technology and cutting-edge silicon devices to provide high quality load waveforms with very low harmonic content. Other features include:

  • Output power up to 300+ kVA (custom levels available)
  • Very small physical footprint
  • Requires smaller cooling system than passive load bank
  • Continuously variable power, power factor
  • Efficiencies >90% - save on electrical costs
  • Operate at higher power levels than distribution can handle
  • Can simulate unbalanced loads
  • Remote control available (Fiber-optic, Modbus, CAN, etc.)
