How do VeriStand, Real-Time Sequences and LabView-generated Models represent numbers?

I would like to understand how VeriStand, Real-Time Sequences and LabView-generated Models handle number representations.

I want to use bit flagging to squeeze as much information into one VeriStand channel as I can, but I don't know how many bits I can safely use.

All of these items use double precision floating point numbers primarily to store data. Real-time sequences are capable of using other integer and Boolean data types in addition to floating point.

 

Double precision floating point can store up to 52 bits as integers successfully, I believe, before it starts losing precision and rounding.
