To ensure that the vital parts of your backup power protection system are functioning as intended, Power Control recommends load bank testing. If you need your UPS, batteries tested with a load but do not want to risk your site, Power Control offer load bank hire for the duration of the test.
We will deliver and install the loadbank with minimal disruption and once we have finished testing we will arrange collection at a convenient time. Power Control can also provide loadbank testing as part of a maintenance agreement. This service allows the client to reaffirm that their backup system is meeting the original instalment specification.
Load bank testing will stress the UPS to simulate max load conditions on the infrastructure of your electrical supply, this would include the cabling, switchgear, fuses and other components and identify any weaknesses within the system. Any potential risks to your critical load can be identified and then rectified as neccesary.
The benefits of load bank testing are:
Performance testing of the UPS, giving total confidence in critical power supply integrity
Engineer controlled tests tailored to your requirements, ensures no unnecessary testing
Out of hours testing can be arranged to help minimise disruption to client operations
Mobile AC and DC load banks of any size available, allowing testing of any installation anywhere within the UK.
Fully documented, procedures ensuring full traceability of all test events and actions
