    Command:

    bestups

    
    
    
    

    NOTE

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

    SUPPORTED HARDWARE

           bestups was designed to monitor Best Power UPS hardware like the
           Fortress, Fortress Telecom, Axxium Rackmount and Patriot Pro. It also
           recognizes and supports SOLA units such as the 325, 520 and 620. In
           addition, the Best 610 is supported using the 'ID' option.
    
           Other UPS hardware using the Phoenixtec protocol should also work, but
           they will generate a warning since their battery information is not
           known.
    
           This driver does not support some older Best/SOLA units.
    
    
    

    EXTRA ARGUMENTS

           This driver supports the following optional settings in the
           ups.conf(5):
    
           nombattvolt=num
               Override the battery float voltage which is normally determined by
               asking the hardware. This is useful if your UPS constantly reports
               battery.charge values just below 100% even when it's completely
               charged.
    
               If you have this problem, set this to whatever battery.voltage
               reports when the UPS is known to be completely charged with a good
               battery.
    
               The author's Best Fortress 750 uses nombattvolt=27.4.
    
           battvoltmult=num
               Multiply the reported battery voltage by this number. Some devices
               report only a fraction of the total battery voltage.
    
               For example, the SOLA 610 700VA UPS (with a 24V battery) reports
               the single cell voltage (about 2.27V when fully charged). In this
               particular case you can set battvoltmult = 12 in ups.conf(8) to fix
               this.
    
           ID=string
               Set the Identification response string. This should only be used
               with hardware that supports the Phoenixtec protocol status inquiry
               commands, but not the "ID" command, such as the Best/SOLA 610.
               Format of the ID string is: AAA,BBBB,CCC,DDD,EE.E,FF.F
    
               AAA is the three-character identification for the UPS model.
    
               BBBB is the output power in VA (volt amperes). B is an integer
               Typically, for 700VA, 1KVA and 1.5KVA units, the format is FF.F.
               For 2KVA and 3KVA units, the format is FFF.F.
    
               Example: a Best 610 1.5KVA unit would use the string
               "610,1500,120,120,10.0,48.0".
    
    
    

    BUGS

           The battery charge percentage value (in battery.charge) is derived from
           the voltage data that the UPS returns, since the UPS doesn't return
           that value directly. On some hardware, the charge will remain at 100%
           for a long time and then drops quickly shortly before the battery runs
           out. You can confirm from the battery.voltage readings that this is a
           problem with the UPS and not this driver.
    
           Similarly, the float from the charger in some models forces the battery
           charge percentage back up to 100% immedately after the UPS goes back
           on-line, so you can't tell when it is really recharged.
    
           Finally, some models give one value for the battery's nominal voltage
           and yet actually have a nominal voltage slightly below that. This leads
           to things such as the perpetual 98.7% charge on the author's Fortress
           750, even when it's been charging for weeks. You can use nombattvolt=
           in ups.conf(8) to fix this.
