    Command:

    powerpanel

    
    
    

    NOTE

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

    SUPPORTED HARDWARE

           This driver supports CyberPower BC1200, PR2200 and many other similar
           devices, both for the text and binary protocols. The driver will
           autodetect which protocol is used.
    
    
    

    EXTRA ARGUMENTS

           This driver supports the following optional settings in ups.conf(5):
    
           protocol=[text,binary]
               Override the default autodetection of the protocol.
    
           manufacturer=value
               If you don't like the autodetected value, you can override this by
               setting it here.
    
           model=value
               Like manufacturer above.
    
           serial=value
               Like manufacturer above.
    
           ondelay=value
               Time to wait before switching on the UPS (1 - 9999 minutes,
               0=indefinite). Only available with the text protocol driver (see
               Support Status).
    
           offdelay=value
               Time to wait before shutting down the UPS (6 - 600 seconds). Values
               below 60 seconds will be truncated to 6 seconds intervals, values
               above 60 seconds to 60 seconds intervals. Only available with the
               text protocol driver (see Support Status).
    
    
    

    VARIABLES

           Depending on the type of your UPS unit, some of the following variables
           may be changed with upsrw(8). If the driver can't read a variable from
           the UPS, it will not be made available.
    
           input.transfer.high
               writable: high transfer voltage point in V
    
           input.transfer.low
               writable: low transfer voltage point in V
    
           battery.charge.low
               writable: remaining battery charge percentage for low battery
               warning
    
           ?   shutdown.return, shutdown.reboot, shutdown.stayoff
    
           On many devices, these commands are unreliable, so before using them
           you must verify that these work as expected (see Shutdown Issues).
    
           ?   shutdown.stop
    
    
    

    SUPPORT STATUS

           Vendor support is absent for this driver, so if you need some features
           that are currently not available, provide ample documentation on what
           the driver should sent to the UPS in order to make this work. If more
           information would be available on the binary protocol, it would
           probably be possible to make ondelay and offdelay configurable. So far,
           nobody has taken the time to investigate what we should tell the UPS to
           make this work, and CyberPower isn't willing to share this with us.
    
    
    

    SHUTDOWN ISSUES

           If the shutdown.return command on your UPS doesn't seem to work,
           chances are that your UPS is an older model. Try a couple of different
           settings for offdelay. If no value in the range 6..600 works, your UPS
           likely doesn't support this. In order to get the expected behaviour, it
           requires shutdown.stayoff (when on battery) and shutdown.reboot (when
           on mains). The driver will automatically fallback to these commands if
           shutdown.return fails, and tries to detect which one should be used
           when called with the -k option (or through upsdrvctl shutdown).
    
           This isn't bullet-proof, however, and you should be prepared that the
           power will either not be shutdown or that it doesn't return when the
           power comes back. All models supported by the binary protocol and many
           supported through the text protocol are affected by this.
    
    
    

    KNOWN PROBLEMS

           The CyberPower OP series don't offer direct voltage, charge, frequency
           and temperature readings. Instead, they will return a binary value that
           needs conversion to the actual value.
    
           The exact conversion needed is unknown at the time of this writing,
           hence an estimation was made based om readings from actual devices.
           This may (probably will) be off, possibly a lot. Unless you can tell us
           the exact mapping between values from the UPS and actual readings,
           don't bother to complain. We've done the best we can based on the
           limited information available. Remember, a UPS isn't a measuring
           instrument.
