The Whirlwind ROK1 Remote Outlet Controller allows a 20 Amp 120 VAC circuit to be turned on and off from a conveniently located switch or a programmable dry contact closure. The device is a single gang decora type design that can installed in a 3.5" deep box or combined with outlets in a multigang box located in a ceiling or wall.
A single pole relay makes and breaks the line or hot leg of a 20 Amp 120 VAC single phase circuit. The relay operates on 24 VDC which is generated internally. The device is activated by closing a single pole dry contact closure connected to the terminal block which completes the low voltage DC circuit through the relay coil. Control circuit current flow is about 40 mA. A green power on LED illuminates when the ROK1 is turned on.
Single gang mounting of the ROK1 requires a 3.5" deep gangable type box or utility box with an extension ring. Multigang installation with outlets requires at least 2.5" depth behind the faceplate and wire entry should not be directly behind the ROK1. The line side of the single phase power circuit connects to the LINE IN terminal and the load is connected to the LINE OUT terminal. Neutral and earth connections are required but do not loop through the unit. Connect the circuit neutral and earth to the load connections first and tap off them to connect to the ROK1. The neutral is required for the 24 VDC supply circuit. Connections are spring cage type and will accept 12 AWG solid or stranded wire. Control wiring of 18 -24 AWG is acceptable and should be sized for the length of the control run.
