Thanks for the response.

I was also concerned about that restriction.
One can download the specification for the protocol which lists all the
parameters that can be obtained from the UPS.

I guess there is a reason why theses UPS's are not supported.
I will look into the option of changing my UPS, and getting something that
is better supported.
