B.2. Supporting manufacturers

UPS manufacturers

  • Eaton, has been the main NUT supporter in the past, between 2007 and 2011, continuing MGE UPS SYSTEMS efforts. As such, Eaton has been:

    • providing extensive technical documents (Eaton protocols library),
    • providing units to developers of NUT and related projects,
    • hosting the networkupstools.org webserver (from 2007 to August 2012),
    • providing artwork,
    • promoting NUT in general,
    • supporting its customers using NUT.


      The situation has evolved, and since 2011 Eaton does not support NUT anymore.

      This may still evolve in the future.

      But for now, please do not consider anymore that buying Eaton products will provide you with official support from Eaton, or a better level of device support in NUT.

  • Gamatronic, through Nadav Moskovitch, has revived the sec driver (as gamatronic), and expanded a bit genericups for its UPSs with alarm interface.
  • Microdowell, through Elio Corbolante, has created the microdowell driver to support the Enterprise Nxx/Bxx serial devices. They also proposes NUT as an alternative to its software for Linux / Unix.
  • Powercom, through Alexey Morozov, has provided extensive information on its USB/HID devices, along with development units.
  • Riello UPS, through Massimo Zampieri, has provided all protocols information. Elio Parisi has also created riello_ser and riello_usb to support these protocols.
  • Tripp Lite, through Eric Cobb, has provided test results from connecting their HID-compliant UPS hardware to NUT. Some of this information has been incorporated into the NUT hardware compatibility list, and the rest of the information is available via the list archives.

Appliances manufacturers

  • OpenGear has worked with NUT’s leader to successfully develop and integrate PDU support. Opengear, through Scott Burns, and Robert Waldie, has submitted several patches.
