Industrial Charge Controllers CIS Series 5-20 Amps IP68 Rated

PV-Systems exposed to extreme weather/environmental conditions (street lights, navigation buoys, etc.) have increased risk for damage in the power electronics. In order to assure reliable battery charge control under such conditions, Phocos developed an encapsulated charge controller (IP68) to prevent corrosion: CIS.

CIS is an industrial-grade charge controller that is suitable for all practical PV applications.  High-quality, 4-stage PWM-charging is combined with amazing features such as: low-voltage disconnect, flexible load timer functions, and a multi-LED system status display. CIS is available in two versions:

Dual load to independently control two loadsOutput Dimming to save energy in lighting applications.

The CIS has no moving parts, switches or buttons. Settings such as battery type, deep discharge thresholds, timers, etc. are made quickly and easily via infrared remote control accessory.

All devices are connected to the controller by supplied lead wires rather than wire terminals. This feature eliminates the risk of damage from external influences (corrosion, dust, water, bugs, chemicals, physical shock) where components make electrical contact to the controller.

The extremely compact aluminum housing even allows for mounting CIS inside street light poles. CIS was developed in accordance with well-established Phocos standards incorporating the latest technology, highest-quality and best possible cost/performance ratio.

Low Cost Charge Controllers CML Series 5-20 Amps

The CML series is a sophisticated solar charge controller family for low cost applications. The electronic circuit is equipped with a microcontroller that provides high-efficiency charging technology together with a number of outstanding status display, warning and safety functions. The temperature-compensated three-stage PWM charging method (boost-equalization-float) is now adjustable to sealed and vented lead-acid batteries. The new version also allows an either SOC or voltage controlled low voltage disconnect function. The battery status is clearly indicated by three LEDs.

As the first controller on the market in this price range it comes with an acoustic low voltage load disconnect pre-warning feature.

LCD Display Charge Controllers CX Series 10-40 Amps

The CX series is a sophisticated solar charge controller family with exceptional features in this price range. Beside a perfect PWM regulation with integrated temperature compensation the controllers provide extraordinary display, programming and safety functions.

The battery state of charge is clearly displayed with a bar chart, as well as energy flows from and to the battery and the load status (e.g. overload, load short circuit). The deep discharge protection function can be set up to three different modes: voltage controlled, SOC controlled or adaptive (fuzzy logic).

Acoustic warnings are built in, also a programmable nightlight function. As an accessory we can provide an Excess Energy Management output to control special appliances. The compact case design is prepared for DIN rail mounting (mounting device available as an accessory).

LCD Display Negative Ground Charge Controllers CXN 10-40 Amps (ideal for vehicle mounted applications with negative ground)

The CXN series is a sophisticated solar charge regulator family with negative grounding. Beside a perfect PWM regulation with integrated temperature compensation, the controllers provide extraordinary display, programming and safety functions. The battery state of charge is clearly displayed with a bar chart. The deep discharge protection function can be set up to five different modes: voltage controlled, SOC controlled or adaptive SOC controlled. Acoustic warnings are built in, also a programmable night-light function.

The compact case design is prepared for DIN rail mounting (mounting device available as an accessory).

Energy System Charge Controllers PL Series 20-60 Amps

The PL series of charge controllers offer complete control over the charge cycle and various information about current and past performance.

PL regulators have a built-in low battery disconnect switch. In addition, the versatile event controller can switch power on or off according to criteria set by the user. This allows the PL to do extra tasks such as switching a light on at night or keeping a water tank full by operating a pump when needed. Regulation can be done in both series and shunt modes. Other features include backup generator control and charging a second battery.

Display shows battery voltage, charge current, ampere hours in and out of battery, load being drawn from the battery and charge status.

Information is available for the past 30 days – so even if the user doesn‘t remember what happened, the regulator will.

With the optional PLI interface, the user can access the regulator from a Computer or via modern. Data can be read or setting adjusted.
