       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.

       I had to go out and buy another identical model to find out what to program back into that
       register to bring the first one back to life.  It is not safe to send random characters to
       this UPS.

       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.
