Phocos MCU | Modular Central Unit
Phocos Modular Central Unit, 12/24/48V,
controls up to 16 power units
Modular central unit within the Phocos MPM (modular power management) system solar charge controller
MPM = Phocos Modular Power Management for off-grid systems
The MCU is not a charge controller, it is an modular central unit within the Phocos Modular Power Management (MPM) system. Manages up to 16x components of MPPT / MPS / MCS, compatible with MTS / MRD / MXI. Individual system settings possible via MODCOM software (details below).
As the central control unit, MCU is a key component of Phocos modular power management family (MPM). MCU offers a variety of functions such as priority load management based on user-adjustable voltage thresholds as well as control or alarm functions through an integrated relay control output.
This intelligent control unit allows for the synchronization of up to 16x Phocos power modules MPPT/MPS/MCS (up to 8 MPPT or MPS solar chargers, up to 8 MPS load controllers and up to 4 MCS shunt interfaces) while providing complete system monitoring with integrated datalogging memory. MCU features open an endless spectrum of system design possibilities and combinations.
Customizing your system electronics is as simple as choosing the appropriate Modular Power Management components for the application and assigning their responsibilities. This flexibility eliminates production lead times for customized electronics for standalone power supplies. Synchronizes up to 16 power modules (MPS/MPPT) (up to 8 MPM chargers, up to 8 MPM load switches, up to 4 MCS shunt interfaces).
- Excess energy management
- Up to five years datalogging memory
- Relay control output
- Intelligent load management
