What is the difference between the Orion and the Orion-Tr?

Specifically why would one pick the Orion Tr 48/12-30 (360W) over the Orion 48/12-360W?

Thank you for any help!

From Victron - The Orion and Orion-TR just differ in case design and how the wiring is connected to the unit. Orion-TR models are based on our MPPT solar charge controller architecture. The “TR” just indicates that it has screw-down input terminals that accept bare wiring with the sheathing stripped back (as opposed to ring lugs or spade connectors, etc). Also, the Orion is not available in non-isolated.

However the Orion TR Smart has much more function as a fully programable DC To DC battery charger.
