Thanks for the reply.
In NUT under unRAID there is indeed a setting to enter a driver in.
Which driver are you suggesting I try as nutdrv_qx makes NUT work, but no communication between NUT and the UPS.
Just tried nutdrv_atcl_usb.c as driver and NUT will not start.
Is there anything else I need to enter in UPS.conf to get it to work?

I believe nutdrv_atcl_usb is orthogonal to nutdrv_qx "fuji" subdriver. They both handle devices using an "ATCL" USB chip which does not have a registered vendorId/productId, but that is where similarity stops. Different UPS vendors implemented different protocols and abilities using that chip as a transport, hence two unrelated drivers.
It seems the HCL entry appeared in relation to this discussion: https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/203
Looking at https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/blob/master/drivers/nutdrv_atcl_usb.c it indeed does not have many settings, just an alternate "vendor" string to match on a device which it finds with hardcoded vid:pid by looking at all USB devices.
Unfortunately I can't help with setup of unRAID bit. I'd assume there is a place to state which NUT driver you want.

I have spent the last few days researching the possibility of using a Powercool UPS with NUT under unRAID.
I have posted my findings on their forums and not had much response besides other users wanting it to work too.
How does one utilise nutdrv_actl_usb?
As a means of connecting to a Powercool UPS along with nutdrv_qx?
Seeing this - https://github.com/cbedgar/nut/blob/1e9216399b890b0770a0e8b158109eaa5e61d332/data/driver.list.in
Fills me with hope that it’s feasible.
Is it feasible or am I wasting my time?
