Amperis AC Load Bank - Battery discharger

Amperis AC Load Bank

The best AC load banks for testing UPS, AC supplies...

Power resistors are used in generator load banks to avoid fouling of the diesel engine when the generator is operating at low power. Therefore, load bank are also used to reduce “wet stacking” issue in diesel engines. In addition, it is standard practice to use power resistors as load banks (battery discharger) to maintain batteries in electrical laboratories, industrial testing facilities and telecommunications facilities.

  • We offer inductive load banks that can vary their power factor between 0.8 and 1.
  • Remote control or local, available in fixed and portable applications on any load banks.

Compact, ergonomic, silent and modular, the new models in our wide range have increased reliability which will help to maintain the excellent reputation of Amperis Products.

Resistive load banks

Resistive load banks are widely used load banks for testing of power systems and generator sets. Amperis offers a varied range of Resistive Load Banks at very reasonable price range. Products are developed using highest quality material which develops an electrical load, and converts the resultant power output of the source. Developed with industry laid standards, Resistor banks by Amperis are perfect to be used for indoor or outdoor application.

In resistive load banks, load is created by converting electrical energy to heat using high-power resistors such as grid resistors. It is highly important that the heat must disperse from the load bank, either by water or air, by convection or other forced means to avoid fouling of engine.

Resistive load simulates real-life resistive loads in testing, such as heating loads as well as the unity power factor component of magnetic loads. The main purpose of a load bank is to follow the "real" or operational load accurately in the actual application. Unlike the “real” load, which is random in value, likely to be dispersed and unpredictable, a Load Bank provides an organized, contained, and completely controllable load. Where the “real” load uses the power source and the energy output of the source for its productive purposes, the load bank using its energy output serves as the power source to support, test, or protect the power source.

Resistive load banks by Amperis are easy to operate as they are manufactured using the advanced technology and finest quality raw material. They are checked using intense quality testing measures and are optimized to give the best performance. The wide range of Resistive Load Banks that is widely used for heat dissipation or to provide braking effect, resistive load banks by Amperis are demanded for their precision designs, outstanding performance, reliability, durability, corrosion resistant finish, and other distinctive characteristics.

  • High Power Loading
  • Systematic operation
  • High-performance level

To save the diesel engine when the generator is operating at low power, power resistors are used in generator load banks. It is a common practice to use power resistors as load banks to maintain batteries in industrial testing facilities, electrical laboratories, and telecommunications facilities Resistive load bank provides equivalent loading for both prime movers and generators which mean, the load applied to the generator (each kilowatt) by the load bank, the same amount of load is applied to the prime mover. Therefore, a resistive load bank removes energy from the system completely. Resistive load bank removes energy from the generator; generator removes energy from a prime mover, and prime mover removes energy from fuel. All additional energy is removed due to resistive load bank operation: waste heat from the exhaust, coolant, energy consumed by accessory devices and generator losses. A resistive load bank creates an impact upon all aspects of a generating system.

Purpose of resistive load banks

  • A resistive load bank is a device or equipment which develops an electrical load, applies the load to an electrical power source and also converts the resultant power output of the source.
  • The main purpose of a load bank is to follow the "real" or operational load accurately in the actual application.
  • Resistive Load Banks used mostly for high power load testing. They are of great help in industries having generators, battery systems, UPS appliances and so forth.
  • Resistive load banks are commonly used for testing AC supplies or DC batteries discharge or UPS testing. The size of load bank is expressed in kilowatts (kW) at the rated voltage.
  • Resistive load banks can also be used for testing supplies up to a limited voltage of 690Vac or 500Vdc. Resistive load banks by Amperis are designed to ensure reliable and safe operation with easy-to-use automatic or manual test programs.

Amperis offers best AC load banks for testing UPS and AC supplies. Resistive load banks by Amperis are available in portable or fixed applications on any load banks. Amperis offers induction load banks that vary in their power factor between 0.8 and 1. The comprehensive range of new models by Amperis ensures greater reliability that help to maintain the excellent reputation of Amperis Products.
