I thought there was a legend next to the filter section, which isn't
showing up on my web browser either.

red: protocol based on reverse engineering
orange: based on fragments of publicly available protocol
yellow: based on publicly available protocol
blue: vendor provided protocol
green: vendor provided protocol and hardware

Arnaud: is someone working on this page?

There are no references to JBUS in the driver code, so either the
protocol is known under a different name, or it isn't likely to work.
Not to say that support couldn't be added (especially if the protocol
spec is publicly available), but if you're looking to put something
into production quickly, Arnaud has a point about Eaton and their
support of NUT.
