 	Not quite what you heard.  The pump always delivers in 0.1Unit
 increments.  THerefore at 1 Unit/hour you would get an increment in 6
 minutes.  The time is caculated by the CPU of the pump as to when to
 deliver a 0.1 Unit increment.  If I remember correctly, the Disetronic
 pump will deliver every 3 minutes ( I think) and will adjust the amount
 delivered at each time.
