RE: CP685AVR output from NUT
I don't own one, but am currently shopping for one.  If I purchase one,
I can provide output.

RE: naming conventions:
As best I can tell...
Models with 'CP' (no 'S') have a USB port on the UPS unit, and maybe
also a DB-9 (serial) port.
Models with 'CPS' only have a DB-9 (serial) port on the UPS unit (no USB
port), but include an inline serial to USB adapter cable.  These seem to
be older models.
