How often will my FieldKit capture data?
The data capture schedule on your FieldKit station can be customized to suit your needs.
The default data capture schedule when a station is not connected to the app is 1 hour. When a station is connected to the app, the data capture schedule is every 10 seconds, except for conductivity which is 1 minute (which cannot be more frequent to maintain accuracy). When a station is connected to the app, the data capture schedule will be as described, regardless of what it might have been changed to.
Note that more frequent data capture will drain your battery more quickly!
