Avtron Load Banks
Load banks are used to commission, maintain, and verify electrical power sources such as diesel generators and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). The load bank applies an electrical load to the power source and dissipates the resulting electrical energy through resistive elements as heat. The resistive elements are cooled with motorised fans within the load bank construction. Load banks can either be permanently installed at a facility and permanently connected to a power source or portable versions can be used for testing when required.
Load banks are the best way to replicate, prove and verify the real-life demands on critical power systems.

Resistive Load Banks
Securely verify the performance of power sources. Resistive load banks from Avtron test ac loads at unity power factor to verify output or apply required load to diesel generators. Avtron offers best-in-class solutions in a range of portable, movable, and permanent designs for indoor or outdoor use. Their industry-leading SIGMA controls make operating and networking multiple loads easy while automatically logging and reporting test results.
Radiator Mount Load Banks
Avtron offers radiator-mount load banks with small footprints for resistive loads. They are a flexible and economical way to incorporate testing equipment without sacrificing essential features. These UL-Listed devices can be installed inside, outside, atop, or the exhaust ductwork of a gen-set. Avtron radiator-mounted load banks offer lower back pressure to prevent wet-stacking in diesel engines to prolong operating life. Make way for efficiency today.
Trailer Mounted Load Banks
Our mobile testing solution, Avtron offers trailer-ready load banks. These units offer high capacity and compact design to users that must test systems at multiple locations. Their compact design enables passage through tunnels, garages, and other structures with low overhead clearance. With market-leading SIGMA controls, they enable facilities to network multiple load banks, automatically execute tests, capture data, and generate reports.
Resistive Reactive Load Bank
Inductive, capacitive, and resistive-reactive loads for precise and accurate testing at non-unity power factors.
Containerized Load Banks
Containerized load banks can withstand the rigors of both shipping and weather. The models below offer heavy-duty ISO-type construction in lengths from 10 to 30 feet. Their enclosures protect load bank components from dirt, water, and temperature changes. Containerized load banks are suited for marine power testing, load bank rental service, and power testing service providers. As with other Avtron load banks, SIGMA controls automate load testing, data capture, and compliance reporting. Invest in Avtron’s most rugged testing devices today.
Medium Voltage Load Banks
For mission-critical facilities, it is crucial to verify that power systems are in optimum working condition. Avtron offers feature-rich medium voltage load banks that streamline transport, installation, and maintenance with models from 500 to 7500 kW. The market-leading units provide step-down transformers or with true direct-connect options that reduce the need for multiple load banks and associated cabling. They can be controlled by Avtron’s best-in-class SIGMA control system.
