the recommended way would be to create the sensor once on a device in PRTG, then create a device template from this, edit it with notepad.exe for example to remove all other sensors except the new custom sensor, and then run an Auto-Discovery with the new template on all other devices (that shall have the new sensor as well).

best regards.
