The problem is, that the enumeration with multiplier 5 does not exist. So we would need an extension of table 104 with the enumerations 30 Aug 21 Accepted
For bar versus Pascal: we can use 39 with multiplier 5 20 Jul 21 Triage
What is the issue if a client shall convert the unit from SI-unit to a Non-SI-unit?
Non-SI-units in data exchange shall be avoided.
I think there is a risk of misunderpretations if the transmitted value can be configured with different units.

Proliferation of non SI-units shall be avoided. RPM can be used for user interface, but not for technical transmissions. Same for non-SI units like kWh. Meteorological data are given in hPa or millibar. 13 Jun 21 Triage
Rotor speed per second will have one or more decimal when applied in wind domain to the speed of a wind turbines rotors, and hence this unit is not in use. All known implementations use revolutions per minute rpm.

Although it is recognised that Pascal is derived base unit in SI-system it is general practice in wind domain to provide pressure in bars. Conversion possibility is not in place in most clients. (1 bar = 100 kPa).

Just as ms in some data attributes we see need for wind domain to support rpm and bar in parallel to "rps" and bars in parallel to Pasclas. This is used in multiple data objects of CVD MV. Is there any alternative way to define data objects for pressure using bars?

Need feedback from proposer if suggested existing units 53 and 39 can be used. 03 Jun 21 Triage
unit 53=rotations per second and 39=pressure in pascals.
these existing values should suffice.
