Got this from wiki:

Phaser - Energy bonus: 2.5% Chance: Disable 1 Subsystem for 5 seconds (Space) / 5% Chance: +2 Hold

Polaron - Energy bonus: 2.5% Chance: -25 power to all Subsystems (Space) / 5% Chance: Weapons Malfunction for 5 sec (Ground)

So yeah, Phasers do have the random chance of knocking off the shields. However; its more likely the Polarons will do it more often because players tend to run their vessel with weapons on high, while running their shield setting at around 25.

meaning - without shield boost consoles or players skills or special efficient BOs, they tend to be at an energy readout of 25. So when using a Polaron weapon, the random -25 power to all subsystems will drop a hole in their shield facing - but this is very very rare - its still the most popular Proc though. Hope that clarify it a bit.
