Hello. I have recently purchased a Powercom BNT-1000CS(Black Knight CS). 
I am new to NUT(and am not a programmer), but I have noticed that this 
model does not work with NUT. I am willing to provide details about this 
UPS for anyone who would like to add support for it(i dont know how to 
get much info though, so you'll have to tell me how). For starters, this 
is what happens when I do upsdrvctl start:

$ sudo upsdrvctl start
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.4.1
Network UPS Tools - PowerCom protocol UPS driver 0.12 (2.4.1)
data receiving error (0 instead of 11 bytes)

The UPS is hooked to a serial port(on ttyS0), and I am running 
Debian(mix of testing/unstable/experimental) on AMD64.

Is there a log file somewhere where I can read more info about why the 
UPS is failing?
