Section V. LOAD BANK KIT
5-20 GENERAL. The load bank is a balanced three phase, four wire, air cooled, resistive load which maintains
the generator up to approximately 50 percent of its rated load to prevent excessive engine carbonizing due to light
loads. It maybe operated at 120/208 or 240/416 volts as determined by the voltage selector connectors. Generator
load may be selected in 12.5 percent increments by use of the load selector switch.
