Your UPS can't make up its little mind what it should report when we  
ask it for the Product string. Initially it reports nothing (unknown)  
and later it reports "068A". This fools the logic that attempts to  
detect the UPS again when the connection needs to be re-established.  
There us really not much we can do about that and it also speaks  
volumes for the robustness of the USB implementation of your UPS.

Since the USB connection is unreliable, a USB to serial converter  
might be a better solution here. Hopefully the serial connection of  
the device is a little more stable than the crappy USB interface.
