PowerWare UPS Comm w/ Controllogix


I have a customer that wants to monitor their UPS using their Controllogix processor. The UPS is a PowerWare 9 1701. They are using version 16 of RSLogix 5000. I can't find any documentation on the Eaton website that helps explain how to read and write commands to the device. How do I get the device to send me its status, etc.? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
