Load bank testing replicates and verifies the operation of critical power equipment such as generating sets, uninterruptible power supplies, and battery systems. Avtron manufactures leading load banks for a range of applications and environments.

Ensure backup power availability when it matters most

Load banks apply electrical loads to test power sources and aid power sources to perform at the optimal level. They can provide different types of electrical loads to replicate different electrical characteristics of facility equipment.

Avtron manufacture from small portable solutions right up to containerized multi-megawatt units to meet the complex demands of any load test applications.

Useful Content


A load bank applies electrical load to a power source and dissipates the resulting energy as heat. 

It really depends on the application and the type of results you require. We offer simple solutions to add supplemental load to a diesel generator, right up to variable power factor options with complex data acquisition. Please contact us about your application and we will offer you the correct solution. 

Avtron offers reliability, technology and support on a global level to ensure your load test requirements are met.
