you've probably answered your own question here ;-)

Solis 1.5 are actually APC Smart UPS. Thus, it's very likely to be APC
serial protocol, and not Solis anymore (Ie, as supported by the NUT solis

AFAICT, "newer" (since ~3 years) APC unit using the microlink for serial
communication are not supported anywhere.
Binary protocol, not documented, nor reverse engineered (yet).
