Phocos CIS-LED 5A Waterproof Controller 12-24V

Phocos CIS-LED 5A Waterproof Controller 12-24V

£49.42 excl. VAT

Charge controllers are the heart of every PV system, precisely controlling energy flow, protecting the battery, and increasing system efficiency. Harsh weather conditions can damage sensitive electronics. In order to protect these core elements, thus increasing system operation time, reliability, efficiency, and savings, Phocos has designed a product line featuring a fully encapsulated housing (protection class IP68) – the CIS-series.

This series now has a new member developed specifically for rough environments and to meet the needs of users of solar LED lamps and solar LED street lights. The highlight of the CIS-LED is that it combines three functions in one fully protected case: charge controller + flexible timer + LED drivers.

  • Built-in LED drivers
  • An on/off timer and a timer for adjustable dimming allow dimming of the light at specified time intervals, extending the time of operation while also saving energy
  • The CIS- LED offers an auto protect function: With its two low voltage disconnect levels, the light will be automatically dimmed when the battery charge is getting low (programmable via CIS-CU remote control)
  • Settings such as battery type, deep discharge thresholds, timers, and other configuration settings can be made quickly and easily via infrared remote control
  • The small size of the devices offers extra flexibility, fitting easily into almost every application.

Key advantages

  • For extreme environments, solar LED lamps and solar LED street lights
  • Combines three functions in one: charge controller + flexible timer + LED drivers
  • Fully protected by its encapsulated case
  • Waterproof (IP68) 1.5m for 72h
  • Flexible dimming functions
  • Auto protect function: two voltage disconnects
  • Small size, fits everywhere
  • Programmable: with CIS-CU and MXI-IR (available optionally)

Available models

  • Phocos CIS-LED 05 (5A single load)
Optional available

CISCOM Software
CISCOM configuration software for CIS-controllers, quick and easy configuration of individual load-time and system components. The CISCOM requires the MXI-IR interface for communication between PC and the CIS-controller.
