Sorry, this one went past us :( Please excuse the delay in response. The Sensor should actually show up when entering either OPC or Modbus in the Sensor search of the Add Sensor dialogue. Make sure that nothing is selected in the Add Sensor dialogue's blue filter box :)

Just to amke sure, did you activate the "Alpha Sensors" under Setup | System Administration | Monitoring | Experimental Functions? Otherwise, you will not be able to see the OPC UA Custom, Modbus RTU and OPC UA Certificate Sensors.
