I am afraid that this is bad news.  This device does not seem to
follow the standard USB "HID" protocol. This means that the device
probably follows some proprietary custom communications protocol.
There is not much I can do to reverse-engineer such a protocol.
It would be a lot of work and very difficult; perhaps impossible. 

You options:

* use the serial port instead of USB, if your UPS has one,
* use a manufacturer-supplied driver instead of NUT, if there is one, or
* buy a USB that is supported by NUT.

I am sorry that I can't do more. Unless someone else on this mailing
list has an idea...?
