The Avtron LCV load bank has been renamed and is now the Avtron 7900 load bank. Please visit our new product page here for current information and pricing.

The Avtron LCV load bank is designed to provide high capacity resistive and reactive loading of AC power systems such as diesel generator sets, turbines, or Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS). Many specifications and local codes demand that such testing by performed at less than unity power factor, typically 0.8 p.f. lagging. To achieve a 0.8 power factor, the LCV combines resistive load (KW) with reactive load (KVAR). This combination provides a true test of the actual generator or UPS nameplate rating (KVA) and simulates a "real world" load.


  • Designed to provide high capacity resistive and reactive loading of AC power systems such as diesel generator sets, turbines, or UPS systems
  • Rugged ISO style container houses the resistive and reactive components, blowers, associated controls, and interconnections
  • Bolted and hinged entry door for access and service
  • Fork lift pockets at container base
  • Container features air intakes on sides of container with vertical exhaust through roof
  • Reactive elements are of non-saturating single and three-phase iron-core construction impregnated with high dielectric varnish
  • Resistive elements made from corrosion resistant chromium alloy wire and fully supported on stainless steel rods for long life
  • Resistive elements cooled by integrally mounted blower motors each rated 10 HP, 460 VAC, 3-Phase, 60 Hz
  • Features both local and remote load control
  • Rugged compact (7"x7"x2") remote controller communicates with Load Bank PLC via 200 feet of control cable in (2) 100' increments with MS style connectors
  • Hard wired E-Stop push button provided on remote controller
  • All resistive and reactive functions are displayed on LCD display
  • Digital metering with data logging provided to measure voltage, current, frequency, KW, KVAR, and power factor
  • Features branch circuit fusing on all load steps
  • Overtemperature protection
  • Air switches on blowers electrically interlocked to remove load if airflow is not sufficient to provide proper cooling
