ComRent’s History with Remote Technology

Expert technician conducting remote load testing services


ComRent has always strived to be more than just a load bank supplier. Through the years, we have been able to pair our deep expertise in load testing services with our innovative nature to continuously improve the load testing experience. It is this commitment to evolving the industry that began our efforts in remote technology.

After commissioning thousands of data centers, our expert team knew there had to be a better way to handle the tedious load testing process. It was this idea that led ComRent to reimagine data center commissioning. ComRent teamed up with ASCO Power Technologies to develop remote technologies that would revolutionize load testing services.

In early 2017, ComRent launched the XS665 with CR Remote Technology©. This powerful load bank offered a continuous load at various voltages specifically designed for data center commissioning. By syncing the digital meter with ComRent’s patented remote technology, operators could, for the first time, control and monitor up to 50 load banks at once.

The days of needing dozens of technicians, an array of equipment, and long hours to test a complex critical power system were replaced with a streamlined process that offered increased accuracy, saved time and money, and made the load testing process safer.

With a remote load bank, technicians are able to activate fans, control loads and review results, all at the touch of a button. The remote operates as a universally-integrated platform by connecting across all load bank functions, controls, and operations to remotely control them from a centralized platform. Once the load test is underway, a remote load bank will display live statistical feedback as well as collect and store all data in its 64-gigabyte internal hard drive.

But we didn’t stop there. In September of 2017, we expanded our remote equipped fleet to the LPH500 and LPH400 load banks. As the only load bank supplier that offered remote load banks, we continued to elevate remote technology.

By 2018, we were able to take it to the next level. With the release of the CR Remote 2, operators were now able to control and monitor up to 250 load banks at once. By adding an additional 200 load banks to the testing capacity, data center commissioning would never be the same. Additionally, the CR Remote 2 was compatible across all ComRent’s load testing solutions opening up the benefits of remote technology to industries outside of data centers.

Remote technology has improved the mechanics and digitized the process of load bank testing, resulting in a significant reduction in labor costs with the need for fewer technicians and less testing time. ComRent is proud to have been at the forefront of remote technology innovation and are excited to see where our future innovations will take load testing services.
