Portable Load Banks for Data Center & UPS Testing

Verify the performance of critical power systems with portable load banks from ComRent.


Portable Load Bank Solutions

Portable load banks generate a prescribed amount of electricity to verify the performance of critical equipment such as generators, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, power distribution units, and cooling systems.

The most common type, portable load banks deliver a resistive load. They mimic real-life operational load that a power source will see when in operation. They convert electrical energy to heat using power resistors and dissipate the heat using air or water.

Load bank solutions can either be fixed or portable. Portable load banks offer the best flexibility. You can move them around your data center and between sites to test specific installations during your data center commissioning.

Easy to Transport

ComRent provides portable load banks with easy transport and space saving capabilities in mind, offering many lightweight and compact load banks for your data center commissioning projects.

The actual dimensions of portable load banks vary in size. However, portable load banks should be small enough to fit through a data center’s access points, such as freight elevators and doors.

You can deploy portable load banks in many applications temporarily to test power systems. They can be as small as 5 kW or as large as 1000 kW.

AC & DC Units Available

ComRent’s portable load banks include small DC units, small AC units and large AC units. Both the small AC and DC versions can be carried or pushed on wheels. The small portable DC unit tests UPS equipment, DC generators, and battery systems. The small AC unit tests UPS systems up to 100 kilowatts (kW). Also on wheels, ComRent’s large AC portable units maintain AC power equipment, including UPS systems and generators up to 1000 kW.
