A resistive load bank converts power from generators into heat, allowing it to test generators at full load. Resistive load bank testing is one of the most common and cost-efficient ways to test power-generating equipment, helping you identify possible power issues ahead of time so your project stays on schedule. Our fleet of resistive load banks for rent features top manufacturers like Avtron, ASCO and Load Banks Direct to ensure you get the highest quality rental equipment available for your project.

Resistive loads only consume active power and occur when current and voltage are in the same phase.
Resistive load banks convert the energy generated by a power source into heat, allowing the load bank to test the power source at 100% capacity.
Reactive load banks don’t test power systems at full load, while resistive load banks do. Reactive load banks simulate real load scenarios for inductive or capacitive loads.
