interfacing to computer

I am working on interfacing a thermo Orion 3 star pH meter with a PC through HyperTerminal. I am very new to using HyperTerminal and I am struggling to log all the data. I basically want a pH reading every minute to be measured and send over to HyperTerminal. How do I achieve this? I need to do this for an unlimited amount of time till I stop it.

  1. Where do I set the time interval for data collection? I did setup, type, time but I can’t tell whether the time needs to put in as 0.017 hours or just as 1.00 minutes. The screen does not specify the format.
  2. How do I start data transfer to pc. If I press view log and send…it starts a count up which finishes after sometime. How do I get this to transfer continuously.
