Introducing the ROK1- Remote Outlet Controller

The ROK1 and ROK2 are UL listed devices that provide a convenient way to turn power on and off for remotely located equipment that consumes power even while not in use.

The ROK 1 and ROK 2 are ideal for controlling AC power to projectors, video displays, powered loudspeakers, lighting fixtures, etc. The ROK1 switches single phase 120 VAC and the ROK2 is used for switching single phase 240 VAC or two legs of 208 VAC three phase. Both devices are rated for switching 20 amp AC branch circuits.

The devices are activated by a user provided, maintained dry contact closure which energizes the relay coil with an internally generated 24 VDC control voltage. Any type of single pole maintained switching, mechanical or programmable GPIO, with a current rating of at least 100 mA  can be used to operate the ROK1and ROK2. Two18-24 AWG control wires complete the circuit between the switch and either ROK device. Multiple units can be activated from a single switch by paralleling the control connections and ensuring that the wiring and control switch are rated for the additional relay coil current loads.

Both units are packaged with decorator style faceplates and can be installed in standard electrical boxes or mounted at equipment locations along with receptacles in multigang boxes. Single gang installation of the ROK1 or two gang mounting of the ROK2 requires a 3.5” deep gangable type box or utility box with an extension ring. Multigang installation with outlet receptacles requires at least 2.5” depth behind the faceplate. In boxes less than 3.5” deep with conduit fittings, space constraints dictate that wire entry can not be directly behind either ROK device.

The ROK1 and ROK2 are UL listed as Industrial Control Switches, ANSI/UL 508 and CSA C22.2 No. 14-13 standards for the direct control of nonmotor-rated loads.
