Place your current program in a while-loop and add a "wait" with 2700000 as input.

(wait is in timing panel)

 

Add a "Write measurement file" (file i/o-panel) which connects to your measurements or calculation.

 

That should be all i think.

Using a Wait function with that long of a duration would be a really bad idea. Assuming that you would also have stop button, the while loop might not terminate until 45 minutes after you pressed stop.

 

Instead, you could simply use the Elapsed Time function with the Time Has Elapsed output wired to a case statement.

Good point. I assumed Wait was abit more flexible. 🙂
