What is Phocos’ history?

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 AG. To this day, Phocos maintains a close relationship with Ulm University of Applied Sciences in the field of off-grid power supply.

Why off-grid?

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.

What applications work well with Phocos products?

Phocos solar-powered charge controllers can be used to provide reliable energy supply in street lights, SCADA systems, RVs, boats and many other applications such as telecommunications and heavy-industry operations.
