       mge-ellipse - Driver for MGE UPS serial SHUT Protocol UPS equipment

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

       mge-ellipse should work with all recent MGE UPS models which use  a  serial  protocol   at
       2400  bps,  however  I  only tested it with a Ellipse 800S model so at the moment only the
       feature found is this (low end) model are supported.

       Older models (Pulsar series) use the U-Talk protocol and should use the mgeups driver.

       This driver supports the following optional settings in the ups.conf(5):

	      Set the low battery warning threshold at which shutdown is initiated by  upsmon(8).
	      The factory default value is 30 (in percentage).

	      Set  the	timer  before  the UPS is turned off after the kill power command is sent
	      (via the -k switch).  The factory default value is 120 (in seconds).

	      Set the timer for the UPS to switch on in case the power	returns  after	the  kill
	      power  command  had  been  sent  but before the actual switch off. This ensures the
	      machines connected to the UPS are, in all cases, rebooted after  a  power  failure.
	      The factory default value is 13 (in 10 seconds units).

	      logs quite a lot of debugging information to syslog.

       The driver should be more generic to be able to handle the capabilities of the whole range
       of MGE UPS models using the SHUT protocol.
