Applications for DC Resistive Load Banks

Batteries provide the equipment they serve with standby power during a power failure. However, battery capacity can drop before batteries reach their calculated life expectancy. Using resistive load banks as battery load testers provides a reliable way to check your batteries on a regular basis. Load testing offers the only form of battery testing to determine actual capacity.


ComRent’s DC resistive load banks make testing convenient, simple, and safe for any application. By simulating DC electrical loads, DC resistive load banks can perform:

You can use DC resistive load banks as battery load testers in many industries, including utility substations, renewable energy, oil and gas, healthcare, government and military. A critical component of a preventative maintenance program, load testing with DC resistive load banks helps minimize risks associated with downtime, personnel safety, and equipment damage.
