WAR Series Description

WAR Series portable load banks incorporate 1kW or 1.25kVa increments for testing small to large generating sets.
The fine control resolution ensures accurate load control and power factor targeting adjustments. Typical applications include generator manufacturing, workshop type servicing and on-site commissioning.

The units are portable and suitable for trailer mounting. WAR series load banks are completely weatherproof to IP55 (NEMA 3R), vertically fan cooled incorporate SEPHCO SDL stainless steel immersion proof, vibration proof resistors and high quality copper wound Class F reactors.

WAR series load banks incorporate LCD display type LC12D portable controllers with touch-type key pad, controlling distances to 100m metres. Features also include fan start-up, adjustable commands of KW, KVA, PF, Hz and Volts plus programmable routines and fault diagnostics.

The controller is a state-of-the art robust weatherproof unit, complete with USB port for connection to a PC.Additional features of Sephco load banks include circuit breaker protection for each load group and full accessibility to switchgear components and resistors.

Safety protection includes the SEPHCO Triple Interlock load protection system, which safeguards against fan failure, air flow restriction, high temperature and fan reversal. Software protection also detects incorrect programming and safeguards the system against over-voltage and incorrect frequency input.

Controls

All WAR series load banks are supplied with control cable and type LC12D weatherproof portable controllers. Units are fitted with standard external power sockets and fan reversal switch. Options include digital display power meters, trailers, cable reels and PowerLock connectors.

LC12DAL Control For WA……LCD Series Load Banks

The LC12DAL controller is a portable processor capable of controlling one or more resistive or reactive load banks from a distance of up to 100m. Operating features include a four-line displaywith simple step-by-step instructional prompts, display of load values such as kW, kVa, V, Hz, PF, Amps and load time. Choice of operation includes manual and automatic load routines. The automatic loading feature has loading routines with time duration and pause override function. Changes to a load routine such as load size and time, is possible at any time during a load test from the pause function key. The controller automatically tunes and corrects the load bank in the event of voltage or resistance fluctuation. The controller also ensures that the load bank is fully protected against over voltage or frequency, preventing the test to proceed. All functions are fully displayed, including warning messages, such as voltage exceeded, frequency incorrectly set, emergency stop, load aborted and cooling failure.

The LC12DAL construction is made of solid aluminium extrusion with die cast corners, weatherproofed and sealed to IP55. The handle can be rotated and locked in any position to suit the user. Connections includes a 6 pin input connector, standard USB port for connection to a PC or Laptop, to obtain additional on-line graphics of actual load tests. Additional features of the controller includes adjustment of all the operational settings namely operating voltage, frequency, power factor, data capture printing intervals. Test routines are held in memory for repeated use.Data captured includes all electrical values, such as phase voltage, line to line voltage, phase currents, line currents, frequency, kW selected, kW achieved, kVa, power factor and elapse time.

Safety features include load bank “System Diagnostics” to ensure that voltage and the operating current do not exceed the load bank’s designed rating. The LC12DAL controller is also available in a panel mounted version for test cell operations
