Load banks

Elkon manufactures resistive load banks that are used to test generators, motors, battery systems and uninterruptible power systems.

These heavy-duty load banks are designed to operate at full load in continuous use. They are equipped with a control panel, a disconnect switch and a thermal overload protection system.

Elkon offers both standard and custom-built models, depending on the client’s needs. All models can be automated.
