Default Any interference from the Genasun LFP solar charger controller?

I've seen them mounted in various places, under the seat pan would be ideal but I'm a bit painted into a corner at this point and it would need to be mounted in the panel, fairly near the radio and the ISU for the Air Vario. They claim these are well shielded, but I've been misled before by manufacturers claims. Since this is an MPPT controller, it must have a high speed switcher in it. Has anyone noticed radio or EM interference when installing this box in the panel?

I have it mounted behind the panel 8 inches from the radio and 3 inches from the transponder and the AirGlide ISU. No issues whatsoever.

Thanks Andrzej, just what I wanted to hear!
