Phocos CIS MPPT Charge Controller

Phocos Charge Controller Selection Guide

We have put together the following selection guide to help you learn about the options and make an informed decision when choosing a charge controller for your application.

Phocos has a complete line of charge controllers. Their range of PMW controllers goes from the straightforward and economic CM 04 to the sophisticated and unbreakable CIS-N models.

Keep in mind that the charge controllers mentioned below are PMW and do not have MPPT capabilities such as voltage step down.

Phocos CM 04 and CM 10 Small Controller

The CM 04 and the CM 10 are the smallest and most inexpensive charge controller Phocos offers. They are ideal for small systems that do not require Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD).
Main feature: Does not include Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD)
PV capacity CM 04: up to 45W
PV capacity CM 10: up to 120W
Available voltage: 12V
Low Voltage Disconnect: No
Rating: Indoor

ECO-N-10-T and ECO-N-20-T Encapsulated with Terminals

Indisputable a great controller for humid, dusty or corrosive environments. As the ECO 10 unit, the electronics in the ECO-N-T units are fully potted and cased in an aluminum cover; the main difference is that they come with terminals instead of wires to facilitate a secure connection. It is an excellent controller for humid, dusty, or corrosive environments.
Main feature: Fully encapsulated with connection terminals
PV capacity ECO-N-10-T: up to 120W
PV capacity ECO-N-20-T: up to 240W
Available voltage: 12V, 24V with auto select
Low Voltage Disconnect: Yes
Rating: Encapsulated, corrosion-resistant
