Disk spins down too fast

I am trying to set the spin down timer of a harddisk to 30min. The disk is a Seagate IronWolf NAS with 4TB. I tried this command so far:

[root@localhost ~]# hdparm -B 127 -S 241 /dev/sdb

 setting Advanced Power Management level to 0x7f (127)
 setting standby to 241 (30 minutes)
 APM_level  = 127

But the disk keeps spinning down after one minute. I tried other values for the -S option too, but the disk still keeps spinning down after one minute.

[root@localhost ~]# hdparm -I /dev/sdb
