tripplite_usb - Driver for Tripp Lite USB-based UPS equipment
This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the
tripplite_usb driver. For information about the core driver, see
This driver should work with the OMNISV1000, OMNISV1500XL and
SMART1500RM2U UPSes, which are detected as USB HID-class devices (but
are not true HID Power-Device Class devices). Other Tripp Lite USB
models may work - please report success or failure to the nut-upsuser
mailing list. A key piece of information is the protocol number.
Also, be sure to turn on debugging ("-DDD") for more informative log
messages. If your Tripp Lite UPS uses a serial port, you may wish to
investigate the tripplite(8) or tripplite_su(8) driver.
This driver supports the following optional setting in the ups.conf(5)
file (or with "-x" on the command line):
This setting controls the delay between receiving the "kill"
command ("-k") and actually cutting power to the computer.
bus This regular expression is used to match the USB bus (as seen in
A regular expression to match the product string for the UPS. This
would be useful if you have two different Tripp Lite UPS models
connected to the system, and you want to be sure that you shut them
down in the correct order.
The productid is a regular expression which matches the UPS PID as
four hexadecimal digits. Only 0001 has been observed for Tripp
Lite USB UPSes.
So far, it does not appear that Tripp Lite UPSes use the iSerial
descriptor field to return a serial number. However, in case your
unit does, you may specify it here.
For more information on regular expressions, see regex(7)
This variable is the same as the "offdelay" setting, but it can be
changed at runtime by upsrw(8).
KNOWN ISSUES AND BUGS
The driver was not developed with any official documentation from Tripp
Lite, so certain events may confuse the driver. If you observe any
strange behavior, please re-run the driver with "-DDD" to increase the
So far, the Tripp Lite UPSes do not seem to have any serial number or
other unique identifier accessible through USB. Therefore, you are
limited to one Tripp Lite USB UPS per system (and in practice, this
driver will not play well with other USB UPSes, either).
