WA-CL Series Description

WA-CL Series portable load banks incorporate 5kW increments for testing small to large generating sets. Typical applications include generator manufacturing, workshop type servicing, on-site commissioning and ship on-board generators.

The units are portable, built in special designed ISO containers. WA-CL series load banks are completely weatherproof to IP55 (NEMA 4R), vertically fan cooled and incorporate SEPHCO SDL stainless steel immersion proof and vibration proof resistors. .

Safety protection includes the SEPHCO Triple Interlock load protection system, which safeguards against fan failure, air flow restriction, high temperature and fan reversal. WA-CL series load banks incorporate touch type LCD display control panels, locally fitted or remote.

Featuring fan start-up, kilowatt selection to 5 kW resolution, fan alarm LED, fan cool-down LED and emergency stop. Additional features of Sephco load banks include circuit breaker protection for each load group and full accessibility to switchgear components and resistors.

Controls

WA-CL series load banks are supplied with full control facility, locally fitted or remote touch type control panels featuring LCD display and optional Modbus Interface or data capture type.

MC12PMB Control For WA……MCSeries Load Banks

The MC12PMB control panel is standard on all WA…..MC portable type load banks. The control panel features a touch type keypad and LED load display, with simple operation of the load bank start up, kilowatt selection and load bank status. The unit automatically configures the load steps in the load bank to provide instant kilowatt response as selected by the Up/Down keys. Other features include load bank “system check” which prevents loading in the event of fan cooling failure, fan reversal or high temperature. Automatic fan cool-down period is applied when the fan stop or load dump is activated.

Operational Features

  • Digitalkilowatt display of load value
  • Touchkey button operation
  • Fan”Start”-“Stop” buttons
  • Kilowatt”UP” – “Down” buttons
  • Enter(Master) button
  • Emergency”Stop” button
  • LEDDisplay:-
  • LED -Load Bank “ON” indication
  • LED -Load Bank “COOLING FAULT” indication
  • LED -Load Bank “FAN RUN-ON” indication

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.
