no, nothing. The driver discovers itself which variables are
writtable, and which are not.
I thought this var. was settable on Ellipse 1200, but a quick test
tell me that it's not. I might have confused with Ellipse Premium.

btw, the tech spec gives 4 mn of runtime at full load:

So the only way to bypass it is to manage a software shutdown level,
as I've done in PSP. The SHUTDOWNCMD is empty, and you use upssched to
control the level each ie 5 sec.
