If you want to store data file at a exact hour (1:00, 2:00,...), Dewesoft offers a simple solution. 


To do this the "Make new file after" option and "absolute time" in storing settings  option have to be enabled. 



1.) If you enter the value 1, a new file will be created at every exact hour (1:00, 2:00,...),

2.) if you select the value 24, a new file will be created at midnight (00:00),


3.) if you select the value 12, a new file will be created at midnight (00:00) and at noon (12:00).


Be careful that 24 is dividable with  the selected value ( 24 represents the 24 hours in a day).


When  "absolute time" option is enabled, we recommend using an external time source such as IRIG, GPS or NTP.


If PC clock is used as a time source, there will be gaps between the recorded files because PC clock and Dewesoft clock are not perfectly aligned.
