Simplex Load Banks utilize the UL Recognized, “Powr-Web” load element. The “Powr-Web” is an advanced design, air-cooled power resistor specifically designed for application to load bank systems. The “Powr-Web” is conservatively operated at half the maximum temperature rating of the alloy and features a short-circuit-safe design based on continuous mechanical support of the resistor by high temperature, ceramic clad stainless steel rods. The “Power Webs” are assembled into discrete trays which are assembled in a vertical “stack.” Each tray in the “stack” is independently serviceable without disturbing adjacent trays.
