The Simplex LBD-Series Radiator Cooled Load Bank utilizes the horizontal radiator air outflow of a generator engine to cool the resistive load elements. The LBD can be adapted to fit varying site conditions and duct dimensions, making it ideal for after market retrofit. Many options are available to suit individual requirements and simplify installation.


  • Load Capacity: Max capacity of 50-1200kW.
  • Two Standard Forms: Bolt-together (50-400 kW) and Weld-together (400-1200 kW).
  • Voltage Options: All standard 50 & 60 Hz three phase voltages.
  • Load Step Resolution: Typically 50kW minimum.
  • Duty Cycle: Rated for continuous operation.
  • Controller: Local or remote controls; Control compartments thermally insulated from load elements; Indicator lights: Normal Operation and Cooling Failure.
  • Control Power: Internal from load bus. Load control circuits operate 120V via transformer. Control circuits are fused.
  • Cooling: Utilizes the horizontal air outflow of an engine radiator.
  • Malfunction Protections: Cooling failure sensors lock out load application.
  • Load Circuit Protection: branch circuit fuses. One set of fuses each 50KW branch. Fuses are current limiting type, 200,000 AIC, 600V, enabling safe use on large generating or UPS system.
  • Load Connections: Connect to full rated copper bus bar with an oversized terminal junction box.
  • Mounting: Mounts directly to radiator or duct work. Exact radiator core dimensions required at time of order.
  • Numerous Applications: Reliability exercise and testing of standby generator sets; Base load leveling to eliminate the deleterious effects of low load operation; Automatic protection against generator reverse power and motoring of prime mover by power regenerated by inertial loads.
  • National Fire Protection Association (NFPA): Satisfies the requirements for emergency stand-by power systems.
