No, the HCL also mentions "protocol 4001". For Tripp-Lite, a USB PID other than 0001 is generally the protocol number. So your SU2200* model is different.

The Protocol 1330 support was added after 2.7.4 was released. You might be able to use a 2.7.4 tarball with "productid = 1330" in ups.conf, but voltages might be off by a factor of 10. You will also need to adjust the udev files manually to fix /dev/bus/usb permissions.

If you do choose to build using the latest source code from Git, be aware that you will need more tools, as specified in the Developer Guide: http://networkupstools.org/docs/developer-guide.chunked/ar01s03.html#building

It may be easier to use the 2.7.4 tarball, and add the patch which introduces Protocol 1330 support to the RPM spec file: https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/commit/4eff5b7068e9873ce11b5a296f403e8cdf0e3580
