Modbus binding - lots and lots of Things. Is this correct?

Since the Nibe bindings doesn’t work with the Nibe heat pumps in the S-series, I’m trying to use the modbus binding instead. It seems to work quite well, but I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if this is what to expect:

  1. If I try to create a poller Thing spanning several input registers where one ore more of them isn’t in use in the heat pump (for example register 6 and 8 in my example below), I will get an error. If this is correct, I vill have to create poller Things for each input register or small groups of registers without gaps.

  2. For each data item that I want to fetch, I have to create another data Thing. This might not be a problem but I guess I will end up with a large number of things and of course corresponding Items.

It’s what’s to be expected.
Just create those things you are interested in.
