Why when naming certain sensors in MSM, do they allow different max character lengths and some are cut shorter than others.
Summary

Why does MSM allow different max character lengths for naming of different sensors

 

Answer

For naming of an MSM connected sensor, European Hach Lange devices can have up to 16 characters while US Hach devices can have max of 10 characters. This cannot be changed and is dictated by product rather than the MSM site
