Yes, for ubuntu 14.04 it's in /lib/udev/rules.d.
#  Ablerex 625L USB  - blazer_usb
ATTR{idVendor}=="ffff", ATTR{idProduct}=="0000", MODE="664", GROUP="nut"

I plugged it in before installing ubuntu on the vague hope that it would detect it 
and install it itself.  In finding out which usb device it was, I unplugged it, ran 
lsusb, replugged it, ran lsusb again.  So I tried it both ways.  I've also rebooted
the machine since installing nut so that may have contributed.
