34970A - Rout:Chan:Delay causes timeout Error. Any workarounds?

I have the following ihave taken from the command expert, which is giving me trouble.  as you can see my delay is only 2 seconds, however is causing a timeout issue when the unit goes to retrieve the data.

 

If i set this to 1.5, it seems to capture the data OK, however i have some high capacitance measurements, which i suspect i need to increase this delay significantly, to maybe around 30 seconds or better.  

 

I appreciate any advice on this subject.
