That model isn't listed in our compatibility table: http://networkupstools.org/stable-hcl.html?manufacturer=Powercom

However, there are at least two drivers which are compatible with other serial models: powercom and blazer_ser (nutdrv_qx might be, as well).

Which driver did you use?

If you are using Raspbian, you can stop the NUT service (sudo service nut-server stop) and run the driver manually in debug mode:

/lib/nut/powercom -a <name-from-ups.conf> -DDDD

The commands and paths will likely be different for other distributions, but you can find out the path by passing a few "-D" flags to "upsdrvctl start".
