Pitty this is also not included in the manual (F1)

 

How to synchronise the PLC clock with the PC.

Via ladder?

Via the HMI Uniapps? (changing in uniapps and pushing the 'OK' doesn't work) 

or ???

Hello,

 

You may edit the RTC via the ladder and/or HMI Time elements for user entered time.  This will require a "RTC Time" tag to be completed this way.  Or you may hardcode the RTC via the System Struct, "RTC Time".  It is also configurable via UniApps: from the System Tab choose "Time & Date" option. 

 

More information on the RTC elements can be found through the following directory in the help files: HMI Screen Editor/HMI Elements (HE)/Time and Date/Time and Date

 

It is not possible to synchronize the PLC time with your PC time, unless you have a UTC time server on the PC you may connect to.  However, you may choose to connect to other time servers via the intenet to perform this.  There is an example of this in our "Sample Applications" download via the help tab in UniLogic.  The application is called "UniStream_070_RFC_1305_UDFB" and can be found through the following directory: UniLogic Examples_V1.12 rev. 20/WIN7 or WINXP/Time based applications.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi Erwin,

I want to thank you for drawing this to my attention.

The different ways of setting the RTC is now documented in the Help, and you will see it in the next version. The UniStream Help is still a work in progress  :)
