Current Limiting Protector: CLiP and CLiP (LV)

With ever-increasing demand on electrical power distribution networks, fault currents pose a real threat to electrical equipment and personnel. The CLiP range comprises medium and low voltage models. They are unique overcurrent protection devices that interrupt potentially damaging fault current before the first cycle peak, which will significantly limit equipment damage, repair and maintenance. The

The CLiP is a cost-effective, single shot, high continuous current, medium voltage current limiter for indoor and outdoor usage rated to 38kV. The CLiP (LV) is a compact, lower voltage version rated at 750V.

The CLiP has been used throughout the world for nearly 30 years with exemplary service in applications such as refineries, generating stations, shipboard, hospitals, industrial plans, oil platforms and FPSOs, universities and the mining industry.

Both CLiP models offer single and three phase protection, with no need to replace components on phases not fault affected.
