I noticed that another (probably unrelated) driver scales the output
voltage, where a reading (from the UPS) of 208 is displayed as 230V. This
is probably needed, since the UPS can't output a value higher than 255,
which is too low for countries that have a nominal mains voltage of 220 to

Unfortunately, I don't know if we should multiply the value read from the
UPS by (230/208) or that we should add an offset (230-208).

What I would like to know, is what is read from the UPS. The output of
'upsc' can help here.

Best regards, Arjen
