Driver for Masterguard UPS equipment


masterguard -h

masterguard -a UPS_NAME [OPTIONS]


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


Please note that this driver is deprecated and will not receive new development. If it works for managing your devices ā€” fine, but if you are running it to try setting up a new device, please consider the newer nutdrv_qx(8) instead, which should handle all Q* protocol variants for NUT.

Please do also report if your device works with this driver, but nutdrv_qx(8) would not actually support it with any subdriver!

Supported Hardware

This driver supports Masterguard UPS equipment (serial connection only).

Extra Arguments


Cancel the shutdown procedure.
