The Clipper VL is a commercial grade and light industrial surge protection device (SPD) that combines surge suppression components and EMI/RFI filtering to provide effective protection for sensitive electronic loads. It is designed to prevent downtime and equipment damage caused by electrical surges.
Features and Benefits and Functions
SurgePlane technology to ensure reliability and performance by using a low impedance copper platform
Compact design to enable close mounting to electrical distribution equipment
Parallel hybrid filter technology
Individually fused surge suppression components
Status indicator lights to monitor supply power, surge suppression component status and fusing
Can be remotely monitored using Form C contacts
Ideal for OEM panel applications
Proven track record in international applications
Independently tested at lightning laboratories to verify published surge current ratings
Standards and Certifications
UL 1449 2nd Edition Listed, UL 1283 Listed, CSA Approved, CE Marked
All Clipper VL units have been tested per NEMA LS-1 and ANSI IEEE recommended high energy impulses (Category C3, 20 kV, 10kA), and internally generated ring-wave surges (Category B3, 6 kV, 500A at 100 kHz).
The UL listed filter protects against ringing transients and EMI/RFI noise disturbances. The tuned suppression filter achieves 40 dB attenuation at 100 kHz (IEEE Category B3 Ringwave).
Three surge current ratings are available to meet a variety of applications - the CVL050 (50 kA/phase), CVL080 (80 kA/phase) and CVL100 (100 kA/pha
