OPC UA data types that the OPC UA Custom sensor supports

This sensor supports the following OPC UA data types:

Note: You can see which channel type the sensor creates in the right column.

Data typeChannel type
BooleanLookup
SByte
Byte
Int16
Int32
Int64
UInt16
UInt32
DateTime
Integer
Float
Double
String
LocalizedText
Float

Note: The sensor automatically creates a lookup channel if the OPC UA server returns a Boolean. If the server returns the value 0 (false), the channel shows the Down status. If the server returns the value 1 (true), the channel shows the Up status. You can reverse the behavior by changing the lookup in the channel settings.

Choose between:

  • prtg.standardlookups.paessler.opcua.positive_boolean_lookup.ovl
    • 0 (false) = Down, 1 (true) = Up
  • prtg.standardlookups.paessler.opcua.negative_boolean_lookup.ovl
    • 0 ( false)) = Up, 1 (true) = Down

Note: Float channels only support numbers that can be stored as float.
