Hell Jakub,
thank you for your KB Post.

That is intentional indeed, the time units only work with integers. It's not intuitive but you can use TimeResponse as unit if you need more precision than a second. Think of TimeResponse as milliseconds. You can see a sensor example that uses it here.

Best Regards,
