If you want to limit the access of data, then send null to the port after a timer call. Use a timer control. Thanks

store the time before starting the access of data by using now() and storing the data in a variable

in the function where u are transfering the data check with the value of now and the stored value if the difference is more than what u want exit stating timeout
