Hi Andy,

I've forwarded your info to the development list, and Carlos Rodrigues 
megatec driver author and maintainer.

As a side note, there is a megatec_usb driver underway. You might
want to give it a try.

@Carlos: I let you update the drivers.list.

Thanks for your report,

Success report with network UPS tools


I have just successfully installed NUT 2.0.5 to manage my UPS.

My UPS model is a Belkin F6H650UkUNV which can connect via serial or USB 
- I'm using serial, along with the megatec driver and it is basically 
working fine.

The only slight quirk was the during the deep battery test, the machine 
was shut down by upsmon before the deep discharge test completed, 
although I cannot really complain since that was just over an hour on 
batteries!  The output below was taken whilst the UPS was still
