The CLiP is an electronically sensed and triggered, commutating form of current limiter. The CLiP works like a breaker and a fuse combined.
It consists of two parallel paths - a copper bus bar path that carries the continuous current, and a parallel mounted fuse which interrupts the fault when the main path is opened due to overcurrent.
  • At the most basic level - the CLiP is a tool to get rid of fault current. Most other devices are used to manage current, the CLiP eliminates it.
  • In addition – the CLiP interrupts higher fault currents than any other equipment at distribution voltage. Therefore:
    • CLiP reduces Arc flash and Arc blast
    • CLiP protects old, over-dutied equipment
    • CLiP  allows existing under-rated equipment to meet ever-increasing fault ratings without unnecessary upgrades
    • CLiP allows for a new generation to be tied-in without unnecessary upgrades (e.g. great for renewables)
    • CLiP reduces additional design costs
  • Easy to install (indoor/outdoor; it only requires current coordination) and is maintenance-free 
  • Cost-effective. Reducing the fault current level will reduce the cost of switchgear, transformers, cables, motor starters, and system losses (no need for reactors)
    (e.g. potential capital expenditure savings (not including labour) of 5-10%)
  • Improved system stability and power quality
