  1. Locate the Log Interval section of the configuration menu and enter the desired data collection interval for each sensor.
    1. Intervals of 5 minutes to 1440 minutes (1 day) are accepted.
    2. Note: Increasing the logging frequencies of sensors will increase power demand for the system. Verify the adjustment is sustainable if the system relies on solar-charged battery power for operation.
    3. Note: Certain sensors take multiple minutes to record and process a reading. Contact NexSens to verify the maximum recommended sampling frequency of a device before increasing its frequency.

Enter desired log interval changes into the New Value field for each sensor.


  1. Scroll to the bottom of the menu and click SAVE.

Prompt confirming that the indicated changes have been processed and will be applied the next time the logger contacts WQData LIVE.
