It does work yes. Just wondering if there was a more suitable one. Thanks
For a numeric parameter that can be set by the user, the best record
type to use is usually the ao record (or the longout for integers); you
can then use the DRHV/DRVL fields to limit the range of values that will
be accepted, and/or the IVOA field along with alarm limits to control
what happens for bad values:
