Hi all,
being the topic creator I want to just intervene about the target
It is intended to run on a *headless* RaspberryPi2 (or equivalent more
robust ARM platform as was pointed out in another response).

I could maybe use cron to start it every 1 minute (but then I would
need to find a way to NOT start it if it is already running but has
not finished yet).
Most executions would find that there is nothing to do since the time
for the next measurement has not arrived.

Or else I would have to have it running 24/7 (as a windows service
does) but be idle most of the time until a time trigger is detected at
which time it will run a measurement. Such a measurement may run for
several minutes before it finishes.
Meanwhile nothing else can be done towards the instrument.
