I've not digged the subject, but HP's UPSs are always rebranded units
from Powerware, MGE (some old MR models IIRC) or maybe APC.
So having a look at apcsmart, upscode2 and bcmxcp might also be a good
idea to revive such support.

but once more, I've not digged this issue, and have no knowledges
about the implied protocols.
