Inventory sale valid in the continental US only.

The Phocos CIS-N-10 charge controller is made to operate in negative grounded solar systems under extreme conditions. The controller’s power electronics are IP68 epoxy-encapsulated to prevent corrosion in any type of environment. The CIS-N models are industrial charge controllers ideal for applications like buoys, oil and gas industry, navigation lights, whether stations, street lights, etc.

Some of the standard features of the CIS-N controllers are 4-stage PMW battery charging, low voltage disconnect (LVD), automatic system voltage recognition 12/24V, flexible load timer function, temperature compensation, LED status display and infrared remote control programming.

To prevent any intrusion of corrosion to the charge controller, the unit has no moving parts, switches or buttons. All programming is done via the infrared programming remote control CIS-CU (sold separately). The remote control allow to change settings as battery type, deep discharge thresholds, load timers, etc. The solar panel, battery and loads are connected to the controllers via the build in lead wires rather than terminal eliminating possible damage from water, dust, corrosion or bugs.

Additionally to the load timer, the single load CIS version includes a dimming output function to control dimmable ballasted lamps.

Phocos AG

Phocos was founded in Germany in the 1980’s. The original founders were engineers and researchers who studied renewable energy at the Ulm University of Applied Sciences. They mainly focused on off-grid applications, for use in remote areas with no connection to the electric grid. As the demand for renewable energy sources grew in remote areas, so did their range of innovations. Phocos maintains a priority to develop eco-friendly, simple to use, energy saving products that are also durable with high-end technology. Applications of their products range from rural, recreational, residential, to industrial. Phocos North America is located in Tucson, AZ. Phocos also has 12 other offices around the world.
