Insulated Operating Rods
Ritelite’s Operating Rods / Poles are available as standard at 1.2m (4ft) lengths for use with Portable Earthing Equipment for temporary earthing in substations, transmission lines and overhead distribition lines.
A range of top section operating rods are available which can fit any commercially available operating head, socket or accessory which are secured by plungers, split pins or rivets.
A number of intermediate sections can be fitted together to make the desired length pole for the job in hand and all rods can be stored easily in a Ritelite operating bag available as an accessory. Plugs and bungs can be supplied to prevent moisture or dirt entering the bottom of the pole.
Ritelite’s operating rods are lightweight yet precision machined to ensure there is minimal flex when the rods are assembled together. They are manufactured to ESI 41-21, ESI 43-81 and TPS 1/113.
