Load and Test Resistors
Load and test resistors are used for tests, maintenance and protection of energy sources and in testing stations:
Load resistors in generator testing stations
Generators are subjected to a final test in the manufacturer’s testing station and have to be loaded with nominal load to this effect. Besides the return feed into the local utility grid, this is an application for load resistors.
Load resistors in switchgear testing stations
In the development phase of non-solid state and electronic switchgears, the designed performance data have to be checked. During production, continuous quality assurance by way of random checking is required. To this effect, load resistors combinations adjusted to the individual purpose are used.
Test and load resistors in airport applications
Ground Power Units (GPU) for the power supply of aircraft on the apron or stationary supply units must be subjected to function and performance tests at regular intervals. To this effect, GINO supplies mobile power units, which comprise all voltages found in aircraft applications. The connections are adjusted to those used in the aerospace industry.
Test and load resistors in the military sector
GINO designs and manufactures stationary and mobile load banks following military specifications, also with IR-absorbing paint (Nato olive).
