How far can the remote control panel be from a load bank?
When a load bank is configured with remote toggle controls, the maximum distance from the load bank to the remote control panel is 200 feet [60 M]
We defer wire gauge requirements to the local installer and/or the local electrical code where the unit is to be installed.
Generally, the wiring would be 12 gauge out to 50 feet [15 M], and add one wire gauge for every 50 feet further, up to 200 feet.
Distances out to 500 feet [152 M] maximum may be possible by the addition of pilot relays for distance.
When the load bank is configured with SIGMA 2 controls, the max distance from the load bank to the remote control panel is 3300 feet. [1000 M]
The standard connection between the load bank and the SIGMA 2 remote controls is RS-485 via shielded cable.
