NAME

       tripplite_usb - Driver for Tripp Lite USB-based UPS equipment

NOTE

       This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the
       tripplite_usb driver.  For information about the core driver, see
       nutupsdrv(8).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       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.

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       This driver supports the following optional setting in the ups.conf(5)
       file (or with "-x" on the command line):

       offdelay
           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
           "/proc/bus/usb/devices").

       product
           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.

       productid
           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.

       serial
           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)

RUNTIME VARIABLES

       ups.delay.shutdown
           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
       verbosity.

       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).
