belkin - Driver for Belkin serial UPS equipment
This man page only documents the hardware-specific features of the belkin driver. For
information about the core driver, see nutupsdrv(8).
The belkin driver is known to support the Regulator Pro 525 (F6C525-SER). Other similar
models such as the 425 and 625 should also work.
The Trust UPS and older Belkin units are not supported.
This driver does not support any extra settings in the ups.conf(5).
The protocol for this UPS is not officially documented.
Beware. It is possible to turn your UPS into a glorified power strip if you play with the
protocol directly. In particular, there is one command that will convince it that it has
no batteries, so you lose your protection.

Note: the driver doesn't go anywhere near these character sequences, so it won't zap your
UPS. I only mention this here as yet another reminder of the perils of closed hardware.
