Datalink Calculated Data - How do I set a conversion factor of 1/96?

I got a request from customer to calculate tag values in below format, but I'm not sure how to set the conversion factor. Can someone please advise?

 

Requirement

  • Compressed data for the tag is below:

 

  • A simple average of first 15 values gives 8118.915

 

  • Using Calculated Value in Datalink with Conversion Factor = 1 gives a similar value. (though my screenshot is for "event-weighted" average, please note that time-weighted results are not too different).

 

Using Conversion Factor = 96 gives below:

 

Using Conversion Factor = 1/96 = 0.0104166 gives below:

 

Clicking the small button next to Conversion Factor shows below:

 

Now, there are 96 "15 min intervals" in a day. Does that mean using interval = 15m and Conversion Factor = 1 is equivalent to a conversion factor of 1/96? Tricky part is, I don't know what value user is expecting.

 

Thanks,

TomJ
