  Vulcan-5 Overview

Simplex Load Bank System - Vulcan-5

The Simplex Vulcan-5 is a very large capacity, portable Load Bank System consisting of multiple units, each rated 5.0MW, capable of parallel operation to form very large systems of up to virtually unlimited capacity. Medium voltage to 34.5kV. Includes: trailer portable load modules, portable or fixed mounted distribution switchgear, integrated digital control and data acquisition system, and connection accessories. Each load bank trailer is equipped with a PLC-based digital control system and local operator interface. Each trailer networked such that entire trailer can be controlled from a single station. Any system of paralleled trailers can be controlled from a single station, either at one trailer or at a remote station.
