NAME

       tripplite_usb - Driver for older Tripp Lite USB UPSes (not PDC HID)

SYNOPSIS

       tripplite_usb -h

       tripplite_usb -a UPS_NAME [OPTIONS]

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       This driver should work with older Tripp Lite UPSes which are detected as USB HID-class
       devices, but are not true HID Power-Device Class devices. So far, the devices supported by
       tripplite_usb have product ID 0001, and the newer units (such as those with "LCD" in the
       model name) with product ID 2001 require the usbhid-ups(8) driver instead. Please report
       success or failure to the nut-upsuser mailing list. A key piece of information is the
       protocol number, returned in ups.debug.0. 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 has been tested with the following models:

       ·   INTERNETOFFICE700

       ·   OMNIVS1000

       ·   OMNIVS1500XL (some warnings)

       ·   SMART700USB

       ·   SMART1500RM2U

       ·   SMART2200RMXL2U

       ·   SMART3000RM2U

       If you have used Tripp Lite’s PowerAlert software to connect to your UPS, there is a good
       chance that tripplite_usb will work if it uses one of the following protocols:

       ·   Protocol 0004

       ·   Protocol 1001

       ·   Protocol 2001

       ·   Protocol 3003

       On the other hand, if the web page for your UPS on the Tripp-Lite website says
       "HID-compliant USB port also enables direct integration with built-in power management and
       auto-shutdown features of Windows and MAC OS X", then you should use the usbhid-ups(8)
       driver instead.

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       This driver supports the following optional settings 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
           or lsusb(8); including leading zeroes).

       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.

           Note
           This regex is matched against the full USB product string as seen in lsusb(8). The
           ups.model in the upsc(1) output only lists the name after TRIPP LITE, so to match a
           SMART2200RMXL2U, you could use the regex .*SMART2200.*.

       productid
           The productid is a regular expression which matches the UPS PID as four hexadecimal
           digits. So far, the only devices that work with this driver have PID 0001.

       serial
           It does not appear that these particular 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).

       ups.id
           Some SMARTPRO models feature an ID that can be set and retrieved. If your UPS supports
           this feature, this variable will be listed in the output of upsrw(8).

       outlet.1.switch
           Some Tripp Lite units have a switchable outlet (usually outlet #1) which can be turned
           on and off by writing 1 or 0, respectively, to outlet.1.switch with upsrw(8). If your
           unit has multiple switchable outlets, substitute the outlet number for 1 in the
           variable name. Be sure to test this first - there is no other way to be certain that
           the number used by the driver matches the label on the unit.

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 a serial number or other globally unique
       identifier accessible through USB. Thus, when monitoring several Tripp Lite USB UPSes, you
       should use either the bus or product configuration options to uniquely specify which UPS a
       given driver instance should control.

       For instance, you can easily monitor an OMNIVS1000 and a SMART1500RM2U at the same time,
       since they have different USB Product ID strings. If you have two SMART1500RM2U units, you
       would have to find which USB bus number each unit is on (via lsusb(8)), which may result
       in ambiguities if the available USB ports are on the same bus.

       Some of the SMART*2U models have an ID number, but because this ID is not exposed as a USB
       string descriptor, there is no easy way to use this ID to distinguish between multiple UPS
       units on a single machine. The UPS would need to be claimed by the driver in order to read
       this ID.
