For binary data, you can use a TBlobField.
If this is what you want, then you can look at:

What type is "x" in "x := Sender.Value"?

This may be a solution:
with field do
 begin
 if  not IsBlob then {Only for TByteFIeld}
   begin
    GetMem(Buffer,DataSize) //Must have a buffer with length datasize
 try
  if not GetData(Buffer) then // get a data from field
      messageDlg(' Field is NULL .........
    else
       // here Your work
   finally
     FreeMem(Buffer,DataSize);
 end;
end;
end;

var
  buffer : PChar;

  with sender do begin
    if not IsBlob then {Only for TBytesField}
    begin
      GetMem(Buffer, DataSize); //Must have a buffer with length datasize
      try
        if not GetData(Buffer) then // get a data from field
          showmessage('Field is null')
        else
          // here Your work
          Text := xxx  <----- How can i pass the value (it should be 0 or 1)

You may convert PChar to string and select Buffer[1] char
