PC Connect Saves CSV File Every 12 Minutes Regardless of Interval Chosen

I am using PC Connect with a model 06039 weather sensor. I want PC Connect to append to my local CSV file at 30 minute increments. I have the option set to "Every 30 minutes" in the "How often would you like data to transfer?." The program appends the file every 12 minutes. I tried closing and reopening PC Connect after changing the option just in case the program only reads that option when opening. This made no difference. I also tried changing it to another interval and then back to 30 minutes thinking that maybe the program hadn't written the chosen interval to memory. Still made no difference.

I need the file to be written to every 30 minutes because the data is being used by a web application that uses intervals of 15 minutes which makes choosing the temp reading very easy considering there are two 15 minute slices in 30 minutes. Using 12 minute intervals makes me have to do an extra calculation as to which chosen 15 time interval corresponds to which reading in the CSV file.

Hello Brian,

The PC Connect software will always update at 12 minute intervals on the CSV file. When it is asking how often you will like the data to transfer it is only asking how often do you want to dump the data saved into the CSV file, not the update time on the CSV file.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.

Yes but how many incremented files can it generate in a 24 hr period if you don't append your files and want a new file generated? with a 12 min update.

Hello James,

A PC Connect display will provide a new dated file every 12 minutes if you have 12 minute updates chosen on PC Connect. You would receive 60 new files every day.  Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.

YES why when it gets to 86 files does it stop and overwrite the last data?
