Phocos MCS Modular Current Sensor for MCU

Current sensor within the Phocos MPM (modular power management) system


The MCS (as Modular Current Sensor) is a component of the Modular Power Management (MPM) controller family. MCS works in combination with MCU (Modular Central Unit) within the Phocos modular power management system (MPM). MCS measures system current In and Out of the battery which is not otherwise collected by other MPM units. This can be charge current from wind/hydro or diesel generators or load current used by inverters. Equipped with a current shunt (available optionally) the MCS measures current in the measurement range of 50A up to 800A (shunts) and reports to the MCU for data logging system analysis and monitoring purposes.


MCS can be connected to any free bus port within the Modular Power Management system (MPPT/MPS/MCU/). Simple DIP-switch settings for address allocation and current range setting is made at the time of installation. No further configuration is necessary. A sensor cable is connected to the current shunt. Two LED‘s display the status of the unit. MCS is built into a robust metal housing which is prepared for DIN-rail mounting.


MCS and the Phocos Modular Power Management family allow for an unprecedented variety of PV-Hybrid System designs. The modular nature of this controller family assures simple, customized and safe system design with great expandability potential. The use of intelligent components such as MCS and MCU provides complete system performance monitoring for accurate system analysis (datalogger).
