What's in /etc/sysconfig/ups?

Reproduced here.

# If the UPS is locally attached set it to "yes"
# Model of the UPS (filename to call for it, without path)

#       apcsmart        - APC SMartUPS and similar
#       fentonups       - Fenton UPS
#       optiups
#       bestups

#       ups-trust425+625
#  upsdrvctl
# You MUST change this, or set SERVER to "no"
# To support multiple drivers, set MODEL=upsdrvctl

This parameter can't be just anything--it needs to be the name of the nut driver that handles your UPS. I don't see Powermate listed in the README in /usr/share/nut-*/ and I don't see it in the compatibility list at http://www.networkupstools.org/compat/. So you need to figure out if the protocol used by your Powermate is compatible with any of the listed devices. If so, use that driver. If not, try MODEL=genericups and see if that gets you anywhere.

# UPS device - needed if UPS is locally attached
# Any options to pass to $MODEL
# ex. for my TrippLite UPS, use
#       OPTIONS="-t 5"
# Any options to pass to upsd
