You are correct, It's not a standard cable. You can either buy this cable 
from APC or, make your own. I am not sure of the exact wiring arrangement 
but, I have seen the cable's wiring plan on the net. It was on one of the 
UNIX UPS daemon pages. Possible the one you are now using.

I suggest a search at linuxdoc.org or a search on linux / unix UPS programs 
to uncover this wiring diagram.
