Crestchic Loadbanks, the acknowledged leader in load bank manufacture and supply, has provisioned 16x 300kW load banks for a load test at an Irish data centre. The on-going tests are part of a regular maintenance and commissioning programme by the client.
Crestchic’s load banks simulate electrical load, but can also test the operating environment.
Paul Brickman, Sales and Marketing Director at Crestchic, added: “Data Centre servers exude enormous amounts of heat and our load banks are used to heat load test the air conditioning systems to ensure they can cope with the heat output of the servers. Any downtime from a power failure or air conditioning fault can be very costly to the operator, a fact that we help companies to mitigate their risk in this area.”
