RONK Electrical Industries

Founded in 1950, Ronk has a long history of excellence in supplying many best-in-class electrical products to the electric utility market. American-made Ronk products are designed to increase efficiency, stabilize power usage, and let you go home at night knowing that all systems are operating reliably. They are a market-leading manufacturer of phase converters, stray voltage isolators/blockers, double-throw switches (both metered and unmetered) and many other products.

Phase Converters

The ROTO-CON® rotary converter provides smooth, reliable 3-phase power from single-phase lines. The ROTO-CON® family has proven extremely flexible in operating a range of loads for multiple applications

  • Easily installed, requiring only minimal maintenance, UL listed
  • Load ratings from 2 HP to 200 HP for 240 V or 480 V operation
  • The static converter series ADD-A-PHASE® and ECONOPHASE® SHIFTER offer rugged, high-efficiency, balanced power to operate motors and other loads.
  • High operating efficiency: approximately 97%
  • Capable of powering multiple motors

Stray Voltage Isolators / Blockers

Off-site stray, or neutral-to-earth (NE), voltage can result from primary neutral currents, off-site faults, or marginal groundings. Ronk BLOCKER® is designed to reduce the off-site contributions to the stray voltage, allowing the utility to focus on the on-site sources.

  • Extremely durable and reliable - years of field experience and hundreds installed throughout the U.S.
  • Provides secondary fault protection access to secondary grounding system for dispersal of lightning
  • Protects sensitive locations: dairies, homes, swimming pools, fountains, swine parlors, poultry farms

Parallel Jaw Grip, HDPE-Coated Cable to 1.362'' (catalog #1716-60)

Pulls common tree wire without damaging the cable jacket. HDPE-coated cable or "tree wire" is often used in heavily wooded areas because of its ability to withstand contact with branches and falling trees during bad weather. The slippery nature of tree wire, however, can present difficulties for linemen when pulling. Klein's Parallel Jaw Grips are specifically designed to securely pull common tree wire cable without damaging the cable jacket.

Spring-loaded for one-handed operation and easy placement on the conductor. Innovative, high-traction surface grips the cable without damaging the outer jacket (patent pending).

Product Features

  • Securely pulls HDPE-coated cable commonly known as ''tree wire''
  • Innovative high-traction surface grips the cable without damaging the outer jacket
  • Tough carbide grit technology withstands even the harshest jobsite conditions
  • Pulls cable diameters 0.7'' to 1.3'' (18 mm to 33 mm)
  • Spring-loaded for one-handed operation and easy placement on the conductor
  • Common tree wire cable types include General Cable, Hendrix® aerial systems, Rite Lite BLL conductor and Southwire S2 covered cable
