uptime sensor - upper error limit



Hello everybody!

Can a upper error/warning limit be set to infinite since I only need a lower limit?

Use: a runtime/uptime sensor - the monitored device can run for quasi-infinite time. My measurement device which needs to warm up before delivering reliable data could be monitored this way.

Hi there,

Surely, you can do that as you only need lower limit to monitor sensor, hence Upper Error Limit only trigger if you enter the valid number of the limit fields.
