Running usbhid-ups gives a "device not recognised" error but using '-x explore' gives a huge pile of information back. Though this could mean anything from just a small change needed all the way to "good luck" though.

The debug output looks reasonable - I think you are close to getting this working. (If you have any other debug output to send, feel free to gzip the log file and it should get through to the list automatically, if less than 40kB when MIME-encoded.)

We can probably just add the IBM VID to the list of supported devices.

I am not familiar with Arch Linux. What is the easiest way for you to rebuild the package? I attached a patch file to add your device to both the driver and udev rules (diffed from master, but should work against 2.7.4).

I also kicked off a build, which generated this source tarball: http://buildbot.networkupstools.org/~buildbot/docker-debian-jessie/snapshot/Eaton_IBM_VID/ra7f4858f1d220b4c10bf5afb51071ff174f7e4a8-548/nut-v2.7.4-20-ga7f4858.tar.gz (The tarballs don't require autotools or some other dependencies, but they would need a compiler and all of the relevant lib*-devel packages.)

It is possible that you could just change one of the Arch build scripts from "nut-2.7.4.tar.gz" to "nut-v2.7.4-20-ga7f4858.tar.gz" and rebuild, but I am totally speculating. (Note the extra "v" before the version number - I need to fix that...)
