Rain rate graph units: ¿wrong?

Tonight, we had a peak of 6mm of rain in five minutes, but the rain rate in the attached graph indicates 2mm/h ¿what's wrong?

Mora data. The Station is a PCE PWS-20. Between 23:05 and 23:10, the total rain increased from 186.6 mm to 190.8 (4.2 mm in 5 minutes).

This is a rain rate of 50.4 mm/h, but the graph shows exactly 2mm/h (x1/25 factor).

In the station data, each tip of the pluviometer (0.3 mm) is registered in 10 consecutive sensor data lines (about 140 seconds) (about 1/25 hours).

It seems to me that Meteohub expects to receive information from the same tip for one hour.
