Although usbhid-ups does support a number of USB-based UPSes, it does not handle any USB-to-serial converters.

If the blazer_* drivers don't work, we generally recommend trying the nutdrv_qx driver instead. So something like this:

	driver = nutdrv_qx
	port = /dev/ttyUSB0
	desc = "SMS 8 KVA"

If that doesn't work, let us know - there are some debugging flags you can use.
