Might be a stupid question but im just wondering what the Binary Type option does more specifically what length and Startbit do.

Search for "bit field" to learn why this is useful

"length" is how many bits the binary value consists of

"startbit" identifies which bit to start at in the byte at the memory record's address

for example one common thing:
10 is stored in memory as 81
100 is stored in memory as 801
(to the uninitiated this is called the "value*8+1 type")

now look at the binary representation of the values:
10=1010
81=1010001

100=1100100
801=1100100001

As you can see, the value is stored in memory shifted 3 bits to the left

To add this address to the list you'd set the type to binary, tick bit 3, and set length to at least 7, but since it tends to be 2 bytes or more, 16-3=13 works the same
