Phocos CIS20 for 12/24VWaterproof PV industrial Solar Charge Controller, 12/24V, IP68, timer PV-Systems exposed to extreme weather and environmental conditions like street lights, navigation buoys, etc., for increased risk for damage in the power electronics. In order to assure reliable battery charge control under such conditions, Phocos developed the CIS encapsulated PV charge controller to prevent corrosion. The Phocos CIS is an industrial-grade charge controller that is suitable for all practical PV applications. The Phocos CIS is a high-quality, 4-stage PWM-charging mode is combined with features such as: low-voltage disconnect, flexible load timer functions, and a multi-LED system status display. The Phocos CIS charge controller features a two loads timer (2L-series) to independently control dual loads. 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 elements like 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.
