SAFENET(8)			  NUT Manual			    SAFENET(8)

NAME
       safenet - Driver	for SafeNet compatible UPS equipment

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

SUPPORTED HARDWARE
       This driver supports UPS	equipment which	can be controlled via SafeNet
       v1.0 for	Windows	(serial	interface only).

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

       manufacturer=value
	   Autodetection of this parameter is not possible yet (and it
	   probably never will be). Therefore, this user-defined string
	   accepts any name. The default is unknown.

       modelname=value
	   Like	manufacturer above. The	default	is unknown.

       serialnumber=value
	   Like	manufacturer above. The	default	is unknown.

       ondelay=value
	   Time	to wait	before switching on the	UPS (minutes). Defaults	to 1
	   minute.

       offdelay=value
	   Time	to wait	before shutting	down the UPS (seconds).	Defaults to 30
	   seconds.

UPSCMD
       This driver supports some instant commands (see upscmd(8)):

       test.battery.start
	   Start UPS self test

       test.battery.stop
	   Cancel UPS self test

       test.failure.start
	   Start simulated power failure

       test.failure.stop
	   Cancel simulated power failure

       beeper.enable
	   Enable the UPS beeper

       beeper.mute
	   Temporarily mute the	UPS beeper

       beeper.toggle
	   Toggle the UPS beeper

       shutdown.return
	   Turn	off the	load and wait for the power to return. Uses the	timer
	   defined by offdelay.

       shutdown.reboot
	   Turn	off the	load and return. Uses the timers defined by offdelay
	   and ondelay.

KNOWN PROBLEMS
       If you run the shutdown.return command with mains present, the output
       may stay	on or switch off and not back on again.	The shutdown.reboot
       command will unconditionally switch on the load again (with or without
       mains present).

       If the driver is	called with the	-k option (or through upsdrvctl
       shutdown) it tries to detect which command should be used in an attempt
       to stay off until mains is present again	or to cycle the	output if the
       power returned in the mean time.	This isn't bullet-proof, and you
       should be prepared that the power will either not be shutdown, or that
       it doesn't return when the power	comes back.
