Generator / Loadbank Quick Connection (GLQC) Switchboard FS-Series
Generator / Loadbank Connection Switchboard Floor-Standing Series
The APT Generator / Loadbank Quick Connection Switchboard (FS Series) is designed to allow quick and safe connection of a mobile generator set to facilities experiencing loss of power or temporary loadbank for permanent generator testing. The switchboard is rated Type 3R for outdoor installation. Permanent installation and connection of the switchboard to the facility power distribution system will minimize any unplanned power outages or provide easy and safe connection of a temporary loadbank. The primary components of the GLQC Quick Connection Switchboard are cam-lok type receptacles and a fixed mount insulated case circuit breaker.
