You have to look at Powerware for that one. This is a model
before Eaton marked there series.

And yes it is compatible with the bcmxcp_usb driver.

Try to get a new version. I think Ubuntu have the latest.

Yes but not this one. 
> So my question is, will this driver work with this ups?
No, you will need to use the bcmxcp-usb driver.

> I have to know before purchasing.
> Thanks.

Lycka till med ups'en.
