Eaton 5P1500RC 5P UPS Review Discussion

Recommended Posts

The Eaton 5P1500RC is a bit different than than the average UPS, and that's a good thing. It is a shorter compact model that in bundled with all-inclusive mounting hardware to work in a 2-post rack (it includes four-post mounting support as well). This is a significant feature, as most UPSs require 4 post racks to be properly supported. This certainly adds a ton of versatility. Telco-oriented businesses that work in mostly 2-post rack environments will benefit most from the 5P1500RC’s design, as well as those who don't have has much room for deeper UPS products.

Looks pretty solid for it's size. How's the noise, is it quiet enough for use in an office?

I have an Eaton 5SC 1500 that's pretty quiet on mains (little noisy on battery) that I'd love to replace with a smallish rack mount UPS.

Its pretty similar to other models in the 5P line that keep the small fans running at a low speed continuously, and ramp up when on battery. If its under your desk and your feet you are going to hear it. If its in the datacenter, there will be other things louder.
