Wärtsilä to introduce modular load resistors
Wärtsilä announces the launch of its new Jovyload Concept, a portfolio of modularised load resistors. The modular kit format allows customers to select the load resistor according to the precise needs of the required application. The flexible concept offers a wide selection of components, various mobile and stationary designs, and a broad range of control units to choose from. Load resistors are important for testing generators, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), and other sources of electrical power. In particular, industrial segments where generators are commonly used, including the marine and energy sectors, are expected to benefit from the advantages offered by the Jovyload Concept. The new modular offering will be available for either sale or rent.
The concept has been developed at Wärtsilä Jovyatlas Euroatlas in Germany and features a number of customer benefits. These include a more compact design, as well as lower exhaust air temperatures, a very low noise level of <70 dB(A) at a distance of three metres, and a vertical air outlet that eliminates the need for safety distances. Furthermore, the overall construction is extremely robust making it suitable for even more challenging environments.
For generator tests, the new Wärtsilä Jovyload Concept provides a special load bank series from 100kW to 500kW in a very compact and easily transportable form. If more than 500kW power is needed, a combination of several load banks with a single common control unit is achievable via a masterslave connection.
Wärtsilä Jovyatlas Euroatlas has been manufacturing load resistors for more than 70 years.
