ASCO SIGMA LT Controls Simplify Load Testing in Distributed or Space-Limited Applications

The ASCO SIGMA LT Load Control Solution makes portable load banks easy to connect, monitor, and control:
  • Quickly networks up to 25 compact and portable load banks
  • Handheld controller adjusts all units simultaneously or individually from a single location
  • Color touchscreen instrumentation and fast communications provide a feature-rich user experience
Florham Park, N.J., U.S.A. - November 12, 2020ASCO Power Technologies, the world’s leading provider of critical power solutions, is highlighting the availability of its SIGMA LT Load Bank Control System. SIGMA LT is the industry-leading solution for quickly networking compact and portable ASCO 2000, 3000, and 5000 SERIES load banks.

Compact, moveable load banks are used where conventional units cannot pass or fit, such as through small elevators, on building rooftops, and in building basements. These units are also used whenever heat loads must be spatially distributed, such as tests of cooling systems in data centers. Because these applications typically use multiple load banks, the SIGMA LT control system streamlines the connection, monitoring, control, and data logging of load bank networks during electrical and cooling system tests.

The SIGMA LT solution enables users to network many load banks together to provide high capacity electrical testing. For cooling system tests, SIGMA LT enables users to adjust many units simultaneously or to control each unit individually to simulate actual data center heating conditions. Key benefits include:
  • Remote monitoring of ASCO load banks up to 250 meters from a handheld controller
  • Automatic detection of up to 25 load banks through a CAN Bus network
  • Simultaneous or individual control of every connected load bank
  • USB port for exporting test data for further analysis and reporting
  • 4.3-Inch color touchscreen for enhanced usability
  • Single or 3-phase instrumentation
Notably, deploying the SIGMA LT with a network gateway and software solution enables the system to network more than 200 load banks.
“SIGMA LT is the most flexible, capable, and cost-effective load bank solution for deploying and controlling networks of compact load banks,” said Thomas Black, Director of Load Bank Sales for ASCO Power Technologies. “This system enables users to easily and reliably complete tests in constrained spaces and distributed applications. We’re pleased that the solution has received praise from many users.”

SIGMA LT control is available for use with select load banks from ASCO Power Technologies’ advanced portfolio of critical power solutions, including select models from the following product lines:
  • SERIES 2000 – Compact, portable, resistive load banks from 5 to 700 kW
  • SERIES 3000 – Permanent or moveable, resistive load banks from 100 to 2200 kW
