This project is the result of years of work by many individuals and companies.
Many people have written or tweaked the software; the drivers, clients, server and documentation have all received valuable attention from numerous sources.
Many of them are listed within the source code, AUTHORS file, release notes, and mailing list archives, but some prefer to be anonymous. This software would not be possible without their help.

Frederic Bohe: senior developer, Eaton contractor (2009-2013)
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),
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.
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.
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.
Pavel Korensky’s original apcd provided the inspiration for pursuing APC’s smart protocol in 1996
Eric Lawson provided scans of the OneAC protocol
John Marley used OCR software to transform the SEC protocol scans into a HTML document
Chris McKinnon scanned and converted the Fortress protocol documentation
Tank provided documentation on the Belkin/Delta protocol
Potrans provided a Fenton PowerPal 600 (P series) for development of the safenet driver.
MGE UPS SYSTEMS was the previous NUT sponsor, from 2002 until its partial acquisition by Eaton. They provided protocols information, many units for development of NUT-related projects. Several drivers such as mge-utalk, mge-shut, snmp-ups, hidups, and usbhid-ups are the result of this collaboration, in addition to the WMNut, MGE HID Parser the libhid projects, … through Arnaud Quette (who was also an MGE employee). All the MGE supporters have gone with Eaton (through MGE Office Protection Systems), which was temporarily the new NUT sponsor.
Fenton Technologies contributed a PowerPal 660 to the project. Their open stance and quick responses to technical inquiries were appreciated for making the development of the fentonups driver possible. Fenton has since been acquired by Metapo.
Bo Kersey of VirCIO provided a Best Power Fortress 750 to facilitate the bestups driver.
Invensys Energy Systems provided the SOLA/Best "Phoenixtec" protocol document. SOLA has since been acquired by Eaton.
PowerKinetics technical support provided documentation on their MiniCOL protocol, which is archived in the NUT protocol library. PowerKinetics was acquired by the JST Group in June 2003.
Cyber Power Systems contributed a 700AVR model for testing and development of the cyberpower driver.
Liebert Corporation supplied serial test boxes and a UPStation GXT2 with the Web/SNMP card for development of the liebert driver and expansion of the existing snmp-ups driver. Liebert has since been acquired by Emerson.
