UPS units and generators provide back up power to your company’s vital systems. However, without regular servicing, your UPS can fail, leaving you at risk of losing vital data. As part of our holistic approach to after sales service, we offer load bank testing.
A load bank test will ensure your UPS and generator is able to support the load ; it does this by testing your UPS and generator under load conditions.
Load bank testing makes sure your UPS will run smoothly and efficiently. As discussed in our previous blog, battery failure is the most common reason for a UPS to fail; A load bank test will enable you to see how long the battery is able to support the critical load for. Any problems can be identified and put right, therefore removing any doubt that it will not be able to support the load for long enough in the event of a power failure.
Full testing of the generator and UPS units under load will ensure that all the components within the system will work and perform together as intended when called upon to support a critical load.
