usbhid-ups - Driver for USB/HID UPS equipment


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

This driver, formerly called newhidups, replaces the legacy hidups driver, which only supported Linux systems.

Supported Hardware

usbhid-ups brings USB/HID UPS monitoring to NUT on all platform supporting USB through libusb. It should detect any UPS that uses the HID powerdevice class, but the amount of data will vary depending on the manufacturer and model.

At the present time, usbhid-ups supports:

• the newer Eaton USB models,
• all MGE USB models,
• all Dell USB models,
• some APC models,
• some Belkin models,
• some Cyber Power Systems models.
• some TrippLite models
For a more complete list, refer to the NUT hardware compatibility list, available in the source distribution as data/drivers.list, or on the NUT website.You may use the 'explore' driver option to gather information from HID UPSes which are not yet supported; see below for details.

This driver is known to work on:

• most Linux systems,
• FreeBSD (beta stage) and maybe other *BSD,
• Darwin / Mac OS X,

• Solaris 10.

Extra Arguments

This driver also supports the following optional settings:


Set the timer before the UPS is turned off after the kill power command is sent (via the -k switch).

The default value is 20 (in seconds). Usually this must be lower than ondelay, but the driver will not warn you upon startup if itisn't.

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 ensuresthe machines connected to the UPS are, in all cases, rebooted after a power failure.

The default value is 30 (in seconds). Usually this must be greater than offdelay, but the driver will not warn you upon startup if it isn't.Some UPS'es will restart no matter what, even if the power is (still) out at the moment this timer elapses. In that case, you could try if setting ondelay =-1 in ups.conf helps.

Set polling frequency, in seconds, to reduce the USB data flow. Between two polling requests, the driver will wait for interrupts (aka UPS notifications),which are data changes returned by the UPS by itself. This mechanism allow to avoid or reduce staleness message, due to the UPS being temporarily overloadedwith too much polling requests. The default value is 30 (in seconds).
If this flag is set, the driver will ignore interrupts it receives from the UPS (not recommended, but needed if these reports are broken on yourUPS).
vendor=regex, product=regex, serial=regex, vendorid=regex, productid=regex
Select a specific UPS, in case there is more than one connected via USB Each option specifies an extended regular expression (see regex(7)) that must matchthe UPS's entire vendor/product/serial string (minus any surrounding whitespace), or the whole 4-digit hexadecimal code for vendorid and productid. Try-DD for finding out the strings to match.


• -x vendor='Foo.Corporation.*'
• -x vendorid=051d* (APC)

Ups Driver Shooting

• -x product='.*(Smart Back)-?UPS.*'
Select a UPS on a specific USB bus or group of busses. The argument is a regular expression that must match the bus name where the UPS is connected (e.g.bus='002', bus='00[2-3]').
With this option, the driver will connect to any device, including ones that are not yet supported. This must always be combined with the 'vendorid' option.In this mode, the driver will not do anything useful except for printing debugging information (typically used with -DD).


This driver is not built by default. You can build it by using 'configure --with-usb=yes'. Note that it will also install other USB drivers.

You also need to install manually the legacy hotplug files (libhidups and libhid.usermap, generally in /etc/hotplug/usb/), or the udev file(nut-usbups.rules, generally in /etc/udev/rules.d/) to address the permission settings problem. For more information, refer to the README file innut/scripts/hotplug or nut/scripts/udev.

On Linux with MGE equipment, you will need at least a 2.4.25 or 2.6.2 kernel as well as libusb-0.1.8 or later to disable hiddev support and avoidconflict.


The driver ignores the 'port' value in ups.conf. Unlike previous versions of this driver, it is now possible to control multiple UPS unitssimultaneously with this driver, provided they can be distinguished by setting some combination of the 'vendor', 'product', 'serial', 'vendorid', and'productid' options. For instance:

Known Issues And Bugs

Repetitive timeout and staleness

Got EPERM: Operation not permitted upon driver startup

Unattended shutdowns

The hardware which was used for development of this driver is almost certainly different from what you have, and not all manufacturers follow the USB HIDPower Device Class specifications to the letter. You don't want to find out that yours has issues here when a power failure hits your server room and you'renot around to manually restart your servers.

If you rely on the UPS to shutdown your systems in case of mains failure and to restart them when the power returns, you must test this. You can doso by running upsmon -c fsd. With the mains present, this should bring your systems down and then cycle the power to restart them again. If you do thesame without mains present, it should do the same, but in this case, the outputs shall remain off until mains power is applied again.

Wild Party
One Monday morning the UPS man is driving the neighborhood on his usual route.
As he approaches one of the homes he noticed that both cars were in the driveway. His wonder was cut short by Bob, the homeowner, coming out with a load of empty beer and liquor bottles.
'Wow Bob, looks like you guys had one hell of a party last night,' the UPS man comments.
Bob, in obvious pain, replies 'Actually we had it Saturday night. This is the first I have felt like moving since 4:00 am Sunday morning. We had about fifteen couples from around the neighborhood over for some weekend fun and it got a bit wild.' 'Hell, we all got so drunk around midnight that we started playing WHO AM I.'
The UPS man thinks a moment and says, 'How do you play WHO AM I?'
'Well, all the guys go in the bedroom and we come out one at a time with a sheet covering us and with only our 'privates' showing through a hole in the sheet.
Then the women try to guess who it is.'
The UPS man laughs and says, 'Damn, I'm sorry I missed that.'
'Probably a good thing you did,' Bob responded.
'Your name came up seven times...'
Buying A Horse
Little Johnny attended a horse auction with his father.
He watched as his father moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the horses legs and rump, and chest..
After a few minutes, Johnny asked, 'Dad, why are you doing that?'
His father replied, 'Because when I am buying horses, I have to make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before I buy.'
Johnny, looking worried, said, 'Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy Mom.'
Fedex Drivers Sue
Two Lebanese-American FedEx Ground drivers over $60 million by a jury in connection with a discrimination suit.
Edgar Rizkallah and Kamil Issa claimed that their manager regularly referred to them as 'camel jockeys,' 'terrorists' and, most hurtful of all, as 'UPS colored.'
