AC Ground Reactors

RoMan’s AC Ground Reactors ensure safety during the heating process by providing protection from electrical shock when direct grounding of the secondary circuit is not practical. Grounding reactors are available in multiple sizes and voltages.

Grounding Reactor Selection Table

Select the appropriate grounding reactor by:

  1. Determine the maximum secondary voltage of the welding transformer to be protected.
    See Column 1 of Selection Table.
  2. Determine the ampere rating of the fuse or circuit breaker installed in the primary circuit to protect the welding transformer.
    See Column 2 of Selection Table.
  3. Select type of connection desired.
    See Column 3 of Selection Table.
  4. To request a quote on a single Grounding Reactor, click the "Model Number" link.

See NEC Table 250-95 for required ground conductor size in respect to rating of overcurrent device.
The proper sizing, application, installation and wiring of the grounding reactor is the sole responsiblity of the user.
