SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       This  driver  should  recognize  all BCM/XCP-compatible UPS’es.  It has

       ups.conf(5).

       shutdown_delay=delay
              The number of seconds that the UPS should wait between receiving
              the shutdown command (OB LB) and actually shutting off.

       baud_rate=rate
              Communication speed for the UPS. If this is set to 9600, it  try
              to connect to the UPS on 9600bps. If it fails to communicate, it
              go into baudhunting.  It start at 1200 and up to  19200.  If  it
              succeed  it  tell you the speed it connect with. If not included
              in the config it default’s to baudhunting.
