Description

The Phocos MCS 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.

Main features of the Phocos MCS Modular Current Sensor

  • Variable resolutions by shunts (50/100/200/400/800A)
  • Plug and Play setup
  • Two-LEDs status indicator
  • Powder-coated metal housing

Phocos MCS Modular Current Sensor 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).

The headquarters of Phocos are located in Ulm, Germany. There are 10 Phocos offices worldwide which enables us to service all of the off-grid market needs.Phocos is a world leading manufacturer of solar-powered charge controllers and various components for off-grid power supply. Our product spectrum is wide, ranging from charge controllers to lighting systems to DC appliances such as refrigerators and freezers. The products developed and produced by Phocos are eco-friendly, energy-saving and the perfect solution for off-grid solar energy systems.Phocos’ roots are in extensive research. In the mid-1980’s, engineers in Germany at Ulm University of Applied Sciences developed new technologies for charge controllers. In 2000, some of these researchers took their research and founded Phocos. To this day, Phocos maintains a close relationship with Ulm University of Applied Sciences in the field of off-grid power supply.The founders of Phocos set their sights particularly on off-grid applications which are solar-powered isolated applications with no connection to the central power grid. The demand for off-grid solar-power systems is continuously on the rise in the world’s various industries. The demand is also very high in the rural regions of developing and emerging economies. This trend is due to lower installation and operation costs, sustainability and the convenience of mobile application options. Join our ZERO Home Bills Community.
