optiups - Driver for Opti-UPS (Viewsonic) UPS and Zinto D (ONLINE-USV) equipment
This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the optiups driver. For information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).
optiups was originally written against a PowerES 280es in nut-0.45. It was revised for nut-2.0.1 and tested against a PowerES 420E. It is expected to work with at least the PowerES, PowerPS, and PowerVS models.
This driver additionally supports a Zinto D from ONLINE USV-Systeme AG because of their very similar commands, but it is unknown if it also works with other UPS from them.
This driver will not work with the PowerES stock serial cable. You will need to construct your own three conductor cable:
UPS 6 -> PC 3 UPS 9 -> PC 2 UPS 4 -> PC 5
The cable for Online-USV uses pin UPS 7 (not UPS 4) → PC 5.
This driver supports the following optional settings in the ups.conf(5) file:
For basic shutdown configuration testing, the command upsmon -c fsd is preferred.
On the 420E, ups.serial and ups.temperature are unsupported features. This is not a bug in NUT or the NUT driver, just the way things are with this UPS.
