No, there is no function for using application logic to set the date and time in an IQAN master.

The ways for setting date and time are:

-The date and time can be set from IQANrun

-From the Master Display menu system.

-Or, in a multi-master system, the date and time is also synchronized on startup (so that you only need to have one module with RTC)

For setting date and time in 3rd party modules, you can extract the IQAN date and time and send that as a J1939 message (there is a solution library file for this)

If you are using a master that does not have a display for setting the time (i.e. the MC2), you can set the property RTC enabled to False, this will make the MC2 use start count and time since last startup instead of date and time in the logs.

The IQANdesign solution library files install here:

\Documents\IQAN Files\Solution Library\

the one for taking IQAN date and time and sending it as J1939 Time/ Date Adjust is named:

J1939 set time.ids4
