Yes, I've tried this as well with worse results unfortunately. This 
driver seems to be even more unstable. When it gets able to set 
communication with the UPS (which is not always the case), it usually 
lost it again after a while.

It there a possibility to be an issue of the UPS, or the connection 
between the serial port of the machine and the UPS?
