Why haven’t I heard of the BOOST feature from other manufacturers?

Phocos is a customer driven company, developing products in response to the demands of our clients. Our Engineering and Product Development team developed the BOOST feature, unique to Phocos, in response to feedback from a customer with years of experience offering off-grid and edge of grid services in North Africa.

Environmental regulations in my country are changing and I am concerned the refrigerant used in the FR-B series may not be allowed in the future.

The Phocos FR-B series models utilizeR600a, the most environmentally-friendly refrigerant available in the marketplace today.  Some countries are already outlawing other refrigerants and requiring use of only R600a.

How do I know that I am getting a reliable and well-built product?

Phocos FR-B Series models are built in a state of the art ISO9001 certified facility, and are CE certified.

Do I need to have the FR-B refrigerator/freezer connected to a battery or can I connect it directly to a solar panel?

Phocos does not recommend running the FR-B series directly from a solar panel because the refrigerator will not run at night or when weather conditions are not ideal for solar production causing spoilage.

Can I operate the FR-B Series appliance on 48 volts from my 48 Vdc battery system?

The appliance can operate on 48 Vdc with the addition of a 20 Amp DC/DC converter (a reliable converter such as the Meanwell SD-100C-24 usually runs about $35 on Amazon).
