  • News Feeds
    • Hillstone News
      Hillstone 2017 saw the start of datacentre customers moving away from load bank rental and towards the need to buy equipment sufficient to test new large facilities.

      The increase sales for rack mounted server simulators and floor standing heatload load banks resulted in further Hillstone expansion, with a 4th factory, sufficient for the extra production lines to be opened.

      New product designs for DC battery_loadbanks have reduced the production times and increased productivity. The HPBL range has reduced size, increased ratings for both automatic and manual constant current discharge testing

      2018 has been a year of load bank manufacturing and software R&D which will see the release of a new suite of load bank software in Qtr 3

Why does the HAC230-6RM heat load server simulator loadbank remains the choice of mission critical experts?HAC230-6RM

Since 2010 we have manufactured over 40MW of our 6kW 4U 19” rack load banks to customers across the world.

The NEW 9kW-8U HAC230-8RM is a high powered sever simulator being release Qtr3 2018

Hillstone’s UK Loadbank Rental Service offers DC load banks from 12V to 1200V up to 4500A DC, 30kW, 100kW & 200KW 415V 3phase AC load banks and datacentre load banks including 6kW & 20kW heatload server simulators and dedicated 100kW adiabatic specific load banks.

Hillstone Datacentre loadbanks have been used extensively across the world to allow commissioning teams to perform independent verification of Datacentre Calibration, Heat Load Testing, CFD Modeling, Integrated System Testing and support of Tier Certifications.

Our range of datacentre heat load solutions are all designed to emulate ASHRAE TC9.9 recommendations of operating IT equipment at higher ambient temperatures to reduce the running costs of datacentre cooling systems.

The available load banks include 19" rack mounted 4U server simulators, 20KW portable mini towers and 110KW 400V PDU loadbanks which allow synchronised controls from a single remote hand held controller.

The available range of loadbanks are used for applications and industries as shown below:

Application Note 1
Regular load bank testing of generators provides an essential health check service to prevent diesel engine failure due to wet stacking. Wet stacking occurs due to under loading of the genset which results in wet un-burned fuel building up in the engine. This fuel build up will over time line the combustion chamber cylinders and cause a reduction of the engines rating and efficiency which will ultimately cause premature failure of the generator. Running the generator on load of 50% - 100% of the genset rating will allow the engine to reach the recommend operating temperature, which will burn off the choke deposits.

Application Note 2
Battery Discharge testing is the approved method to determine the capacity of Lead acid and (Nickel Cadmium) Ni Cad/Ni Cd batteries, as recommended by all battery manufacturers such as Enersys, Exide, C&D Technologies, Hawker, Yuasa, Exide, Hoppecke, Saft, Varta, and in accordance to BS6290 part 4 / IEC TR 62060.
