Question

How do I set the CS3000 / CS3070 time and date?

 

Answer

Time and date can not be set or changed in the Config.ini file.  It can be removed by editing the Config.ini file. 

The time and date for the CS3000 and CS3070 is set by scanning bar codes from Chapter 3 of the CS3000 Product Reference Guide.

Scan the Set Date programming bar code followed by six numeric programming bar codes equal to mmddyy.  The first two numeric bar codes indicate the month, the next two the day, and finally the year.  The Save Configuration bar code found in the same chapter must be scanned to save the change.

Scan the SetTime programming bar code followed four numeric programming bar codes equal to hhmm.  The first two numeric bar codes indicate the hour, the second two indicate the minute.

 

 

Alternatively, the time and date can also be set by synchronizing the CS30X0 Real Time Clock to a PC with the use of the RTCSync application.
