hidups - Experimental driver for HID UPS equipment
This man page only documents the hardware‐specific features of the
hidups driver. For information about the core driver, see
This is an experimental driver. Not all features may work correctly.
hidups is an experiment to bring USB UPS monitoring to NUT on Linux.
It should detect any UPS that uses the HID power device class, but the
amount of data it currently reads is limited. This is due to the
interface to the kernel. Better interfaces are planned.
This driver does not support any extra settings in the ups.conf(5).
The status field has been known to blank out after self‐tests on APC
Most of the status registers on better‐documented equipment are not yet
available due to interface limitations.
This driver is tied to the Linux hiddev interface, and probably isn’t
very portable as a result.
