Time Settings - NEB Port Expander

When adding the NEB port expander to a project, not only do you get some additional IO options such as RS485, RS232 and IO's, but you also get some additional settings that has to do with time.

That is because the module has a built-in Real-Time-Clock with battery backup, and that enables scheduling timer events to happen on your Neets controller. Study this article on how to configure a timer event. 

How it works

Once the project is uploaded from Project Designer to the Neets controller, it will transfer the current time from the computer (Windows time) as well. So make sure your computer is correctly configured when creating timer events.

Time zone: Select the time zone that the Neets controller is mounted in.

Enable time server: Enable this if the Neets controller has access to the internet. It will then continously syncronize the time with the below specified NTP timeserver. If the controller doesn't have access to an internet connection, then disable this option, and it will stick to using the above mentioned Windows time settings. 

Time server address: Select either pool.ntp.org for letting the system automatically select the most optimal server for you, or select the server that is closest to your region.
