Thermo Clip™ Series

Fixed-Wire Overtemperature Indicator Clips for Electrical Equipment

Overview Image

Overview

The Thermo Clip™ Series serve as overtemperature indicators for electrical assets. Using a patented Thermochromic technology, these easily-installed clips provide a color-changing visual indicator that work in tandem with the large format windows from IRISS as part of the visual component in the inspection process prior to and between infrared and ultrasound inspections. With a memory-effect feature, these non-conducive clips can also let inspectors see a permanent record of overtemperature excursions in intermittently loaded systems.

Simple Application

Easy and quick push-on installation means no de-energizing or disconnection is needed.

Easy to Read

The thermochromic material provides a highly-visible predictive warning when viewing through inspection windows

Broad Coverage

Multiple models available to provide for varying wire sizes 17AWG to 750MCM wires. Suitable for circuits rated 3-600 VAC or VDC.
