Good Afternoon Guys

Is there any way that i can set the time and date from the HMI on the Samba. I have an application where the HMI/PLC will be shipped internationally and the Samba will be locked down, now as it will be shipped i need a way to set the time and date by the user, this is my first Samba project and up to now its going really well but a few things have stumped me.

I haven't time to go into this in detail at the moment, but I suggest you look up all the help references you can find (under the index) relating to the RTC and also the use of UTC.  This will hopefully point you in the right direction to get there yourself.  I'm sure someone else will come in as well with more detail.

cheers, Aus

Just place the circled item on the HMI:

You will need a separate one for each of Date & Time.

Yep...I'd forgotten this simple method, as the time things I need don't let you do keyboard entry.  But what you want, mucking, it does. 

That's the beauty of this forum, keep on learning/relearning something all the time.

cheers, Aus

Hi Flex, i had only the time with hours and mins set and it would not let me select the tick box, when i selected hours mins and seconds it allowed the tick box, all is good now. Thank you
