NAME

       upscode2 - Driver for UPScode II compatible UPS equipment

NOTE

       This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the upscode2 driver. For
       information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).

SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       This driver supports UPS equipment which can be controlled via the UPScode II protocol.
       This is mainly Fiskars, Powerware equipment, but also some (probably OEM’ed) products from
       Compaq.

EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       This driver supports the following optional settings in the ups.conf(5):

       manufacturer=value
           Autodetection of this parameter is not possible yet (and it probably never will be).
           Therefore, this user-defined string accepts any name. The default is unknown.

       input_timeout=value
           The timeout waiting for a response from the UPS. Some UPS models have shown to be
           rather slow, resulting in frequent messages about empty responses from the UPS. If you
           see this, try increasing this value.

       output_pace=value
           Delay between characters sent to the UPS. This was added for completeness with the
           above parameter. It has not shown to be needed yet.

       baudrate=value
           The default baudrate is 1200, which is the standard for the UPScode II protocol.

       full_update_timer=value
           Number of seconds between collection of normative values.

       use_crlf
           Flag to set if commands towards to UPS need to be terminated with CR-LF, and not just
           CR.

       use_pre_lf
           Flag to set if commands towards to UPS need to be introduced with an LF. A Compaq
           T1500h is known to need this.

COMMANDS

       The driver supports the following commands for those UPSen that support them. The
       available commands are autodetected during initialization, so you should check
       availability with upscmd -l.

       ·   test.panel.start - Start UPS self test

       ·   test.battery.start - Start battery self test

       ·   beeper.enable - Enable UPS beeper

       ·   beeper.disable - Disable UPS beeper

       ·   shutdown.return - Shut down in 1 second and wait for power to return

       ·   shutdown.stayoff - Shut down in 1 seconds

       ·   shutdown.reboot - Shut down in 1 seconds and reboot after 1 minute

       ·   shutdown.reboot.graceful - Shut down in 20 seconds and reboot after 1 minute

NOTES

       The Powerware UPS models that this driver has been tested against until now have not
       returned a value for battery.charge. Therefore, the driver will guestimate a value based
       on the nominal battery min/max and the current battery voltage.
