DCT3000 Load Bank Trailer
Innovating in response to increased data center demand
Datacenter Load Bank: The burgeoning data center market has proved to be one of our strongest sectors – a trend which only looks set to accelerate.
Our load bank testing is invaluable in helping data centers mitigate downtime and develop future resilience strategies. As such, we have developed a trailer mounted load bank solution in response to growing data center demand for transportable load banks on sites with multiple generators.
Our self-contained, Data Center Load Bank Trailer combines the powerful testing capability of Crestchic’s resistive-only load banks with the flexibility of a heavy-duty trailer for site or road-going applications. With exceptional manoeuvrability, our DCT 3000 load bank trailer is ideal for data centers with multiple generators that require regular testing across the site.
The trailer set-up allows for low level operation, the safety of a braked trailer, without the need for a large HGV-low loader style trailer. DCT 3000 can house both the load bank module and cable storage by means of a motorised reel.
This datacenter load bank can be controlled by either Crestchic’s dedicated LC80 rugged tablet controller or a standard PC over super-fast, interference free fibre optic cable. DCT 3000 also incorporates our new control system NOVA/ORION.

WHY USE A LOAD BANK?
Load banks are primarily used for testing electrical power output on diesel generators, gas turbines and UPS systems whilst carrying out commissioning and maintenance work.
The load banks are used for simulating real electrical loads enabling essential setup and commissioning which ensures that all electrical and control parameters are met prior to power generation/back up equipment being energized on line.
