I have tag in DCS that only indicates "open or "close" position in DCS.  I believe there are 2 options to setup this tag in PI .

1) Setup tag as float 32 & it would indicate 0 or 1. Would you recommend to have step function "on" in this case or it does not matter with step function "on" or "off"?

2) Setup tag as Digital & Boolean type that would indicate "open" or "close". When we choose this by default the step function is disabled.

 

What would be best recommended option so data collection is more reliable. We want this tag to collect reliable & most accurate information as it would be used for environmental reporting purposes. Please help?
