I have an enviromon temperature sensing starter system in a remote location which I have been downloading data from satisfactorily for some weeks now via telephone line and modem. There was a 24 hour power outage recently which I spotted when the modem didn't answer the call. When power returned I expected the previous 24 hours worth of data to be downloaded, it having been preserved by the battery backup in the EL005 however only data post the power restoration was downloaded leaving a 24 hr gap in the data. Is it likely that the data is still available in the memory and can it still be recovered before being overwritten. The present config stores 3 sensor temperatures at 1 min intervals, I usually download each evening.
I feel it ought to be possible to fool the system into forgetting that a download has happened so that it can be repeated.
There seems to be some discrepancy in the publications as to the backup time for the EL005 is it 72 hours or 48 or 24?
