Use of usb storage device with cp675 to store trend data
Voted best answer
I found two ways to do this:
1) Create your trend, and in "Storage Device", select "USB" + option "Save a Copy When Full". This will create a copy of the data every time the buffer is full.
2) Create an event in your Scheduler. For example, if you want to flush data to USB every 5 minutes, create a scheduler that excecutes every 5 minutes, and in the Action field use "DumpTrend" (please see attached picture). The Scheduler also allows an Enable value to stop the transfer if necessary, and in case you need to change the frequency of the dumping action or disable it during Runtime, you can add a Scheduler Widget to your panel. For detailed information about the Scheduler or the Dump Trend Action, please consult the online help in Panel Builder 600, section "Scheduler".

I strongly recommend that you save the file as CSV, so you can open it with Excel or other programs. If not, it will be saved as a .dat file, which can be more difficult to open in your PC.
