Current Limiting Protector (CLiP)


G&W's Current Limiting Protectors (CLiP®) offer the advantages of current limitation for 2.8 through 38 kV systems with continuous current ratings up to 5000 A. Compact, totally sealed construction permits the CLiP to be installed both indoors and out, either pole or structure mounted or within an enclosure. The CLiP's unique ability to provide high continuous current ratings with current limitation and ultra-high speed of operation in one package make it an economical solution for a variety of overcurrent protection needs including:



  • System Upgrade — without replacing under-rated equipment such as circuit breakers, reclosers, switches or bus.
  • Reactor Bypass — to eliminate costly operating losses and eliminate voltage regulation problems.
  • Transformer Protection — to minimize damage by reducing fault energy.
  • Cogeneration — to limit contribution to the system while protecting your cogenerator investment.
  • Lower Breaker Ratings — to reduce the cost of full rated equipment in new installations while improving protection.
  • Close Bus Ties — without exceeding equipment ratings.


Max. Voltage 2.8 - 38 kV
BIL Impulse up to 200 kV
Continuous Current up to 5000 A
Interrupting Rating up to 120 kA sym.
