The Neptune Load Bank is a completely self-contained, freestanding unit which includes all resistive load elements, load control devices, load element branch circuit fuse protection, main load bus and terminals, cooling system, control power supply, unit controller and malfunction detection system and type enclosure.
High capacity load testing of generators, periodic reliability exercise of standby generators, regenerative power absorption of inertial motors with reverse power protection of generators and other Load Bank applications are achieved with the Simplex Neptune Load Bank. The unit capacity range is 200-650KW, resistive, unity power factor.
The Neptune is a single or dual voltage Load Bank suitable for all common 60 and 50 hertz voltages up to 600V.
Cooling System: Using a very high volume forced air cooling system air temperature rise (150-200°F) is limited to that seen in smaller Load Banks.
Load Control: Master load toggle switch and load step toggle switches
Self-contained load and control system
Modular enclosure design with separate and isolated control and power sections
Type 3R, oversize control section with generous cable connection space
Vertical airflow, exhausts hot air above level of personnel and away from buildings, pavement etc.
Slide-out, tray mounted load elements
Highly standardized, based upon extensive product line spanning from 5KW to 3MW.
