[ENG] 3.7. [DKSF 70/71.6 IU] How to Set the Clock?

Setting the Clock Manually

To set the clock manually, there is a need to go to the page «Setup» of a device web interface:

In the section «Embedded Clock (RTC)» it is possible to view and set up the following:

Current Date and Time – is a field for viewing a current time.

New Date and Time (14 digits, format DDMMYYYYHHmmSS without spaces) – is a field for setting a clock manually.

After the clock is set, click the button «Set Clock».

Time Synchronization with External NTP Servers

There is a need to go to the page «Setup» of a device web interface to set up a synchronization with external NTP servers.

This group of parameters allows setting NTP servers (time servers) for a device. A device will set and adjust its internal clock according to them. It is possible to set up to two NTP servers. If the first NTP server is unavailable, a device will try to synchronize time using the second NTP server. It is possible to check a correctness of a configuration by generating an event and viewing its time log, in a log file at the page «Log».

 

In the section «NTP Setup» it is possible to configure the following:

NTP Server #1  is a field to view or change the address of the first NTP server. It is allowed to indicate an IP address or a domain name. An empty field disables the feature of a time synchronization. On default: address is not specified

NTP Server #2  is a field to view or change the address of the second NTP server. It is allowed to indicate an IP address or a domain name. An empty field disables the feature of a time synchronization. On default: address is not specified

Timezone  is a field to view or change a local timezone. A positive or a negative number of offset hours from UTC is set. On default: 3

You are welcome to use freely available NTP servers on the Internet as NTP servers, for example, the ones from http://www.pool.ntp.org/en/, particularly:

A device must have a properly configured gateway and an Internet connection via an NTP protocol to use NTP servers from the Internet.

After setting up all necessary parameters, click the button «Apply changes».
