SOLIS(8) NUT Manual SOLIS(8)

solis - Driver for Brazilian Microsol SOLIS UPS equipment

solis -h



This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the solis driver. For information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).

This driver has been tested with:

•Solis 1000 VA
•Solis 1500 VA
•Solis 2000 VA
•Solis 3000 VA
•Back-UPS BZ1200-BR
•Back-UPS BZ2200BI-BR

All Solis models are sinusoidal on-line.

In 2009, Schneider Electric acquired Microsol Technologies, and by 2012, the entire Microsol line of equipment was being sold under the APC brand.

This driver support the following extra optional settings in the ups.conf(5).

battext = n - (default = 0, no extra battery, where n = Ampere*hour )

prgshut = 1 - (default = 0, no programmable shutdown )

•shutdown.return - Shut down in .3 minutes and restart in .3 minutes
•shutdown.stayoff - Shut down in .3 minutes and do not return

The APC version of the Microsol protocol is slightly incompatible with the solis driver. As of version 0.62 of the solis driver, the driver will connect to the UPS, but some values are read incorrectly.
