The Alert comparison is made after every single conversion. Therefore if the first conversion produces a result that is over the threshold, then the Alert is flagged. See below timing diagram showing when such comparison is made regardless of a large number of averaging samples:

In reply to Guang Zhou:
Hi.Thank you for your reply.
Is it true that the Alert is not compared to the averaged data, but is output the moment the threshold is exceeded?
Does the averaged data role as read data? (Is it a function used in measuring instruments, etc.)
In reply to user5812606:
The comparison is made every time when a conversion completes. The average value is returned as the final value and not used in the comparison, nor is it used in any other measurement.
