I am new to thingspeak.

I am using RFID tags in project. I have tagged 30 objects and I want to publish order of using object in chart on thingspeak.

It take approx 15 sec to update entry in  thingspeak (result), for each tag detected. I have to wait for 15 sec before using another object otherwise result is not updated on thingspeak.

Is there any possibility to send and update thingspeak faster. I am using dot net application program to send data to thingspeak.


Any kind of help will be appreciated.

The 15 second limit is an API rate limitation for the free, hosted version of ThingSpeak. It's possible to use the open source API and run this on a local server or on a web server. The rate limit setting is adjustable in the config file. Otherwise, for the time being, the 15 second is a limit. We may change how we rate limit and allow for short bursts of updates in a set period of time, and then enforce the rate limit afterwards.
