Had some success with the Dynamix 1000 UPS has been had.  Seems they
work with megatec serial over usb, krauler driver,
however, they have an issue with the language string so required some
hacking of libusb_get_string.  Brian R Smith found this
out and sent me a patch to test.   I think Brian or I will try and
improve it a bit before sending a patch to get these working
with nut.

In NZ, these are the cheapest UPS's available by quite a lot, and seem
from a hardware perspective to be quite reasonably
built, so having them supported will help the Linux community here.

I agree that it would be good to encourage the manufacture to get a
real USB vendorid, so will send them some feedback requesting this,
plus better USB support.
