HIDUPS(8)                   Network UPS Tools (NUT)                  HIDUPS(8)




NAME

       hidups - Experimental driver for HID UPS equipment


NOTE

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

       This is an experimental driver.  Not all features may work correctly.



SUPPORTED HARDWARE

       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.



EXTRA ARGUMENTS

       This driver does not support any extra settings in the ups.conf(5).



BUGS

       The status field has been known to blank out after  self-tests  on  APC
       hardware.

       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.
