System Protection:

The user manual supplied with the power supply is very brief but you are pointed in the direction of a more detailed manual on the website that is well worth a look if further information is required. The following paragraph is taken from the download.

"The TPQ-1200 also includes a variety of industrial grade protective circuitry: OCP (Over Current Protection), OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection) and SCP (Short Circuit Protection). Sometimes the PSU will latch into a protected state. This means that you will have to clear the fault and turn the power off to the PSU before it will function again. There are no user-replaceable fuses in your TPQ-1200."

It looks like all the necessary protective features are built in but the user is given no specific figures.
