The Avtron Model K696 is a 250 KW portable load bank in a compact package weighing only 590 lbs. and only 44" high. One, two, or three K696 load banks providing 250, 500, or 750 KW can be transported to a job site in standard vehicles such as vans or pickup trucks. They do not have to be unloaded to enter underground parking garages. Often only one operator is needed on site, as each K696 unit can be connected more easily and rapidly than previous load banks of equal total load capacity.

The K696 can be used independently or paralleled to test larger generator sets. When parallel operation is required frequently, a K696A “slave” load bank can be used. When wired for parallel operation, the K696A is controlled and metered by the K696 “master” unit. The K696A has a control panel with 50 KW load step resolution, allowing it to be used independently if desired. In addition to flexible operation, the K696 provides a rugged construction, with resistive elements that are specially wound and supported to deliver many years of dependable service. As with other Avtron load banks, the elements are designed to operate at low temperatures resulting in more stable.
