I have an Eaton Ellipse Eco 1600 bought in 2016 which has a delayed start 
feature.  If wall power returns quickly, the UPS will wait this time to restart 
the outlets.  But now that manufacturers seem to be silently removing this 
feature from their UPS's I don't know if the current versions support

If I understand the question correctly:

> ups.delay.start: 30

Perhaps these commands also do something similar, but my Ellipse 1600 does not 
have them:
