It doesn't look like it uses the same powerpanel protocol as the older cyberpower system.  I believe one gentleman used the newhidups (now named hiddev in the trunk, I believe) driver in 2.0.5 to get his working on the USB port.  

If you are able to capture the serial port communications from your ups using portmon (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysinternals/utilities/portmon.mspx), more than likely we could add your protocol to the powerpanel driver.
