Application Load Banks

Fortress Resistors offer a wide range of load bank solutions, Expertly designed for use in data centres and aboard naval vessels. Each option has been specifically designed to meet the requirements of any project. With one of our load banks, you will be up and testing within moments of connecting your power source.

X20F Load Banks

Fortress Resistors’ X20F Load Bank provides a continuous load of 20kW at 415Vac 50Hz in an indoor enclosure for data centres. The digital meter allows you to measure power, voltage, current and frequency while also allowing you to record the data as you conduct your testing.

The X20F is purposed designed for use in data centres. It has a low gradient of 30°C between the inlet and outlet air temperatures to accurately replicate real world conditions for testing air conditioning systems, in addition to the data centre power supply.

The load bank will fit into the space taken by a standard 19’ rack and is stackable to allow high power densities per rack space. Each load bank can be handled by a single person as it weighs just 27kgs, making it ideal for movement around a data centre hall.

Power connections are made with an IEC 60309 32A 3P 5-pin socket to match connectors commonly used in many data centres, allowing testing to be performed with existing power infrastructure.

Auxiliary power for fan and control power is taken internally from the main power supply.

You will be up and testing within moments of connecting your power source.

X100F Load Banks

Fortress Resistors’ X100F Load Bank provides a continuous load of up to 100kW at 415Vac 50Hz in an indoor enclosure for data centres. The digital meter allows you to measure power, voltage, current and frequency while also allowing you to record the data as you conduct your testing.

The X100F is purposed designed for use in data centres. It has a low gradient of 30°C between the inlet and outlet air temperatures to accurately replicate real world conditions for testing air conditioning systems, in addition to the data centre power supply.

The load bank is mounted on castors but can also be lifted by a forklift when required, making it ideal for movement around a data centre hall. The X100F is essentially 5 load banks in one enclosure with power connections made to 5 separate IEC 60309 32A 3P 5-pin sockets to match connectors commonly used in many data centres, allowing testing to be performed with existing power infrastructure.

Auxiliary power for fan and control power is taken internally from the main power supply of one of the load bank sections (always connected first).

You will be up and testing within moments of connecting your power source.
