FAQs
What is a load bank?

A load bank is a piece of electrical testing equipment used to simulate electrical loads to ensure power sources like generators are functioning properly. The three main types of load banks are reactive, resistive and capacitive.

What are load banks used for?

Resistive load banks test power equipment like generators to ensure they will function properly if needed. By drawing 100% power capacity from a generator, resistive load banks can inform testers if the equipment needs maintenance or replacing.

How do I hook up a load bank to a generator?

A load bank is connected manually to a generator via a manual transfer switch. Consult the owner’s manual or speak with one of our United Rentals representatives to ensure proper equipment installation.
