19" rack data center HVAC load banks

Within a server room installation and commissioning of HVAC, the use of dedicated 19" rack load banks are used as server simulators to provide heat exchange testing conditions.  This allows for verification of HVAC design and performance of cold & hot aisles.




The power consumption of server rooms typically can range from 90KW to more than 2000KW.  The use of load banks for HVAC testing by virtue that they are connected into the power infrastructure therefore allow verification of  the electrical wiring & balance of the PDU and also as part of black start testing of the standby power UPS & generator systems. 


Fitting the load banks into the racks prove to potential customers the electrical supply is ready to have the very expensive servers installed and switched on.


The typical ratings of single phase 19" load banks include 2KW, 3KW, 4KW and 6KW, allowing for connection to 16A - C19 sockets or 32A - IEC309 / BS4343 commando plugs.


Alternative solutions include the use of 24KW aisle load banks that provide 6 x 4KW load channels that are directly connected via 32A - IEC309 / BS4343 commando plugs to the under floor or ceiling mounted supply points within the data rooms.



Once the load banks are fitted it is also important to install blanking plates to seal off the racks to create  realistic thermal conditions.


Hillstone provides a complete service of load bank rental supply and installation.  We work closely with the customer to ensure the loads are installed balanced across the PDU and connected under the floor or up to ceiling power points.
