Comparing UPS: 5PR vs. 5PRC

Eaton recently introduced the 5PRC line of UPS, which shares many similarities with the existing 5PR line of Eaton UPS.

On the aspects listed below there was no difference at all between the two lines.

The 5PR and 5PRC are not identical, though. The two lines differ on six key features.


If rack space is an issue, the 5PR is the better choice because its rack height is half that of the 5PRC (1U vs. 2U). If you have the space to spare, though, the 5PRC is likely the superior solution because it comes standard with more mounting kits than the 5PR, all for a lower price point.
