Looks like it is in usbhid-ups.

If you're asking what file should you specify the driver in, it's ups.conf (probably still located in /etc/nut; I don't think it has moved much in Ubuntu/Debian over the years).

If you are curious where the USB ID list is in the source, for usbhid-ups, there are several files named drivers/*-hid.c, and they all have macros of the form USB_DEVICE(VID, PID) which will match the hex VID:PID.

A quick check shows that your UPS's ID was added in 2006 (NUT v2.0.3 and later) so your version should be new enough.
