       bestups - Driver for Best Power / SOLA (Phoenixtec protocol) UPS equipment

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

       bestups was designed to monitor Best Power UPS hardware like the Fortress, Fortress  Tele-
       com, and Patriot Pro.  It also recognizes and supports SOLA units such as the 520 and 620.

       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.  Try the bestfort driver if  this
       one does not detect your UPS.

       This driver does not support any extra settings in the ups.conf(5).

       The  battery  percentage  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 con-
       firm from the BATTVOLT 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.
