Tried agiler-old, which failed the same way as the default subdriver. Output from krauler:

	Checking device (0F03/0001) (001/008)
	- VendorID: 0f03
	- ProductID: 0001
	- Manufacturer: Ver 1.0
	- Product: USB To RS232 Interface (V1.0) BaudRate 2400bps
	- Serial Number: unknown
	- Bus: 001
	Trying to match device
	Device matches
	Starting UPS detection process...
	Asking for UPS status [Q1]...
	set_data_krauler: index [03]
	- Unable to fetch string 3
	set_data_krauler: connection failure
	ser_send_pace: Device detached? (error -27: No error)
	= device has been disconnected, try to reconnect =

Again, there were five attempts to make a connection and all of them failed. Disconnecting and reconnecting the UPS did not help. This is somewhat strange. Are there any more subdrivers to try?

Best regards,
