Lookup file with a value that is greater than 0



I am working on a lookup file that should change a sensor state to error, when an amount of inbound error packages gets greater than 0. In other words, when the value is not equal to 0. I only found the options to check if the value is equal to one number or if it is in an area between two numbers.

the lookups are made for a mapping of integer numbers. In order to process floats, please use the sensor channel limiits.

An upper error limit (or warning limit) of 0 means that 0 itself is green, but anything higher triggers the error (or warning) status.
