LOAD BANK ENCLOSURES
Filnor Load Banks are housed in a variety of styles ranging from Nema 1 (indoor screened) to Nema 3R (outdoor louvered). Depending on the application, the load banks are natural convection cooled or forced air-cooled. A host of options are available including high temperature cut-out switches, alarm relaying, RTDs, and door/panel mounted instrumentation.
Enclosure finishes and materials are also application specific. Hot rolled steel with ASA70 gray epoxy powder coat is our standard with options including mill galvanized, aluminum and stainless steel, or special color.
DESIGN CRITERIAAlthough our load banks are custom made to fit a specific application, they are cost effective because we utilize our standard resistors. This allows the engineering team a great deal of latitude when selecting the resistors for a certain job.
ELECTRICAL CONSIDERATIONS Load source voltage and current rating.
AC or DC application. If AC, indicate phase and frequency.
Is an external source available for forced air cooling the load? If yes, state voltage, phase and frequency.
Is any control or instrumentation required?
Are any additional steps (in Kilowatts) required of the load bank?
ENCLOSURE Indicate the desired enclosure type (ie. indoor, outdoor) and NEMA/IEC style (ie. NEMA3R/ IP22)
Environmental conditions such as salt spray from ocean or corrosive pollution in air.
