Tom,

Welcome! The data values for the status messages are specified as signed values but not floats. It could use the sensor definition messages to figure out the decimal point placement, but I'm pretty certain no one has implemented it that way. There was certainly no suggestion in the standard of that kind of implementation.

I would suggest the most reliable way of reporting it in the status message itself is going to be representing it as a whole integer. A user can always drill into the sensor reports directly to get more precision but the status messages were meant to have a generic message that could still give the user some useful information.
