No i did not.
And ... drum rolls..

Hurray it works. Both Mustek and the newer Megatec driver worked.

So i am the proud owner of a Mustek UPS.

for future reference. I used
        driver = mustek
        port = /dev/ttyS0
        desc = "Sweex 1000VA UPS"

        driver = megatec
        port = /dev/ttyS0
        desc = "Sweex 1000VA UPS"

I am using the megatec driver now because it has the most features.

Thank you all very much!

Greetings Herman.

warning boring stuf below
