German term or phrase: gL-Sicherung
Hat jemand eine Ahnung, für was dies Abkürzung stehen könnte? Dank im voraus.

Kontext:
Bei einer Störung in einer elektrischen Anlage (Kurzschluß) soll nur der gestörte Stromkreis und nicht die gesamte Verteilung abgeschaltet werden. Bei gL-Sicherungen werden deshalb die Vorsicherungen mindestens zwei Nennstromstufen höher gewählt.

English translation:General Line Fuses
Explanation:
General Line (gL) fuses

gL fuses are supplied by various firms (such as Klockner Moeller).

The designation gL means a delayed acting High Rupture Current fuse, to DIN49515 and VDE0635, as opposed to gr fuses, which are rapid acting.
