from "man apcsmart":

'apcsmart should recognize all recent APC models that use a serial
protocol at 2400 bps.  This is primarily the Smart-UPS, Matrix-UPS and
Back-UPS Pro lines.'

Note that your equipment is USB, not serial.

Also, you have a typo here (hidddev96 vs hiddev96).

But you probably want to try the newhidups driver instead (which,
incidentally, does not require a 'port=' in ups.conf).
