Differences in comparison to the CS141 Professional
In comparison to the CS141 Professional, the CS141 Budget series scores with its excellent price-to-performance ratio because it supports all software-side functions and is also updated regularly. New features are installed if they are made available with a new firmware version.
Contrary to the CS141 Professional, the Budget version isn’t quite as flexible:
Separately available accessories like sensors, switching relays or the BACS battery management system cannot be used; the functions of the Budget version are limited to monitoring a UPS or managing the connected IT.
