I don't know anything about such brand.
You have 3 options:
- dig a bit the net to see if it's a rebrand of some other manufacturer,
- contact the manufacturer to ask which protocol they use, and ask theim
to support nut,
- try some nut driver in debug mode (<driver-name> -DDD ...) and check if
Google'ing a bit on UPSmart, I found that trying megatec might be a good
Thanks to keep us (the nut mailing list) informed of the results.
And the next time you buy an UPS, remember to prefer a NUT friendly one
