Don't overlook a load balance resistor

    Forgetting to budget or provide lower level beacon ice shields for a project can be a costly error, but be careful to read your client's specifications to see if they require a load balance resistor for their incandescent lighting system. The load balance resistor, usually 1200W, provides constant current to backup systems or temporary generators. The product cost is less than $300.00, plus attachment hardware, but the major expense is in hiring an electrical contractor to complete the project or having to remobilize one of your employees.
