The system has no value for neither Weight, Height, nor Water Temperature properties.

You are using it correctly

neither ... nor ...

is the pattern used as the negative of

either ... or ...

However, your sentence has a double negative

no ... neither ...

you could reformulate it as

The system has no value for either Weight, Height, or Water Temperature properties.
Neither Weight, Height, nor Water Temperature properties can be measured by the system.

I don't think it's correct to use another negative in a neither clause. The sentence should be formed as follows:

The system has no value for Weight, nor for Height, nor for Water Temperature properties.

OR

The system has value neither for Weight, nor for Height, nor for Water Temperature properties.

OR

The system has no value for Weight, height or Water Temperature properties.
