Dear NUT developers,


I represent Enfall LLC, our company profile is niche systems integrator for
the supply of power equipment, including UPS.

The manufacturer Voltronic has an Apex800 UPS model. To supply this UPS to
the customer, we should first ensure the compatibility of this UPS model
with the NUT monitoring system. The customer of the UPS Apex800 is located
in Russia, his NUT monitoring system works on CentOS 6.

At the moment, information has been received from the manufacturer about NUT
monitoring support, but only partially support (not all necessary data can
be obtained from the Apex800 UPS).


Below is a list of data that needs to be obtained from an Apex800 UPS using
NUT. Commands that according to Voltronic are currently not supported are
highlighted in red:
1. UPS status (ups.status)

2. Battery charge level (battery.charge)--Not support

3. Expected battery life (battery.runtime)-- Not support

4. Input line parameters (input.voltage)

5. UPS temperature (ups.temperature) --Not support

6. UPS model (ups.model)

7. Current UPS load (ups. load)

8. The UPS shall transmit to the NUT driver the resulting Runtime value
calculated from UPS controller side (without calculation from the driver
side) --Not support


Voltronic claims that to fully support NUT, the NUT driver for the Apex800
needs to be improved, so we are asking you for help.

1. Please clarify whether it is technically possible to modify the existing
Voltronic driver for the Apex800 UPS and provide the ability to transfer all
data from the UPS to NUT in accordance with the list above?

2. In what time frame is it possible to modify the driver?

3. How much does it cost to upgrade the driver?

4. What information and materials do you need to improve the driver for the
Apex800, besides the protocol from Voltronic? We are ready to provide and
receive everything needed from the manufacturer.


Wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Please confirm that you have received this email.

Best regards
