    Because you are not recording the voltage but confirming that the line and neutral conductors are connected in the correct order and not reversed!

    you could use a binary count 1 or 0 but as stated already it is either correct or not correct.

    It is not recorded as a numerical value, because there is no measurement required for confirmation.
