Product information

The Phocos CIS are charge controllers made to operate in extreme conditions. The controller's power electronics are IP68 epoxy-encapsulated to prevent corrosion in any type of environment. The CIS 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 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, this MPPT charge controller features a dimming output function to control dimmable ballasted lamps.

The new Phocos CIS-MPPT charge controller can be used with 240-250W 60-cell modules primarily designed for grid-tie applications. In a 12V system the CIS-MPPT controller can efficiently charge the batteries from one 60-cell module. In 24V systems two 60-cell modules can be connected in series.

The Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) technology in this charge controller can yield up to 30% more power from your solar panels. Also integrated in the controller is a temperature compensated 3-stage I-V curve algorithm that will help extend the life spam of your batteries.

The CIS-MPPT is the only charge controller from the CIS family with a built-in data logger that will store up to 2 years of system performance data like voltage, current, etc. The MXI-IR USB-Infrared device and the CISCOM Software are requiered to download stored data into your PC.
