The Dual Operation Resistive HACA Range
Auto Load Regulation
Manual Load Control
The HACA load bank range are designed for fixed installations to provide resistive load testing of generators and UPS systems.
Rated for 400kW to 1500kW, 415V, 480V, 600V, 50Hz or 60hz.
Units incorporate vertical force cooling with high powered resistor elements controlled via Manual panel mounted switches or Automatic load regulation to prevent genset wet stacking.
Safety features include: HRC fuse protection, fan failure / phase reversal shut down, differential air pressure switches, over temperature alarms and emergency stop push button.
The Portable HACM Range
Single phase & 3 phase
The HACM portable load bank range are small, lightweight and low cost, allowing for testing of single & three phase UPS systems and small generators.
Rated for single phase 240V AC 10kW & 30kW, three phase 415V AC from 3kW to 30kW and also 3phase 220V 50/ 60Hz.
Units incorporate force cooled high powered, isolated resistor elements plus safety features including:
The panel mounted digital power meter displays line volts, phase volts, line current, power and frequency.
The Outdoor Resistive HAC Range
iHHC Hand Held Controller
The HAC series load banks are a compact low cost solution to on-site AC testing of UPS and generators.
Units incorporate force cooled high powered resistor elements plus features including twist lock safety cable connectors, HRC fuse protection, fan failure shut down and emergency stop push button.
Simple control via iHHC3 - Hand Held Controller giving 1kW load step resolution.
Load banks can also be supplied for both three phase and single phase testing, and with a digital power meter.

Application Note 1
Regular load bank testing of generators provides an essential health check service to prevent diesel engine failure due to wet stacking.
Wet stacking occurs due to under loading of the genset which results in wet un-burned fuel building up in the engine.
This fuel build up will over time line the combustion chamber cylinders and cause a reduction of the engines rating and efficiency which will ultimately cause premature failure of the generator. Running the generator on load of 50% - 100% of the genset rating will allow the engine to reach the recommend operating temperature, which will burn off the choke deposits.
