Siemen Solar charge controller

I need help finding info on the charge controller on our 76 Ambassador. The system now consists of a 85 watt panel and the controller. The circuit board indicates a version IV controller. This was installed in 2006 but no documentation on the controller was included. I've Googled all items but i haven't found any info. Anyone have a similar one or a source for instructions? Thanks in advance for any help.
Dennis

I doubt that they are still in production, as I haven't seen them in over 10 years. Plus, technology has progressed rapidly over that time and you would probably be better off getting a simple PWM controller with 3-stage charging and temperature compensation like the Morningstar Sunsaver-10 for around $50.
