Load Banks & Resistors


BJC can manufacture new or replacement resistors to suit any load or resistor bank. BJC can also manufacture custom load banks or resistor banks from a range of high quality materials including stainless steel, or powder coated steel in a range of colours. They are manufactured to suit your application, so whether it is 5kW or 500kW of load we can provide a load bank to suit.

Load banks are devices designed to provide electrical loads for testing power sources such as generators and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). Load banks are also used to reduce “wet stacking” problems in diesel engines of backup generating systems. Elements are carefully selected to operate at low temperatures to provide extended, reliable performance, eliminating the need for a “cool down” period after load bank operation.

  • Load banks can be used in a wide variety of applications, such as:
  • Factory testing of engine generator sets.
  • Periodic exercising of stand-by engine generator sets.
  • UPS system testing.
  • Battery system testing.
  • Dynamic braking systems used on lifting devices.
