Need a Power (UPS) Management software compatible with USB enabled UPS

I am looking for another UPS management software that can shut down the server gracefully before battery gets drain out & fire an email alert.

Currently I am using viewpower UPS management software:
http://www.power-software-download.com/viewpower.html based on tomcat & java.

Currently using the following 1KVA UPS model:
http://www.emersonnetworkpower.com/en-IN/Products/ACPower/DesktopWorkstationUPS/Pages/LiebertGXTMT+1-3kVAOnlineUPS.aspx & http://microtekdirect.com/online_ups_max_series.php

The UPS is connected through USB cable with single physical IBM server. Server is having SBS 2011 installed.

The current software gets corrupted very frequently in case server booted due to power failure and battery drains out before server gets shutdown gracefully. I have to reinstall the software to re detect the usb connection of the UPS.

Please guide.

This one is compatible with most UPS and compatible with Windows Server.  Standard features are free but enhanced features are optional.  See if it can work for you:

Thanks Wayne88 for sharing the links.
The software downloaded from first link is asking PRTK code written on UPS label.

Got these VID & PID from the device manager. both of the UPS have the same PID & VID.
vid_0665  pid_5161

The following software recognised my UPS but did not able to install the driver:
http://www.networkupstools.org/package/windows/NUT-Installer-2.6.5-6.msi

The driver was created by http://sourceforge.net/projects/libusb-win32/files/libusb-win32-releases
but the driver did not work with any other monitoring software.

This is the nice small software that recognised my UPS but lag many power features:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/winmust/files/winmust/0.4.2.2/

So till now I could not get the solution, back to viewpower.
