Time & Date
The 60 Series indicators include a battery backed time-date feature. This means the time and date do not have to be entered every time the power is cycled.

The Time-Date feature enables printouts of the time, day of the week, and date in many possible formats. By combining macro and setpoint capabilities with the Time-Date feature, alarm sequences can be devised to cause certain events to occur at pre-timed intervals.

Viewing the Time and Date
When the 60 Series is in the weigh mode, the time and date can be displayed simultaneously by keying in 11 [SELECT]. The date is then displayed on the large numeric display in the format MM.DD.YY (or DD.MM.YY for international style) and the time is displayed on the 2x5 portion of the display in the format HH:MM:SS.

The time can be displayed in a 24-hour or 12-hour format, showing a.m. or p.m. as appropriate, depending on how the time-date feature is set up at parameter 503. Press [SELECT] to return to the previous operating parameter.

Entering the Time
A new date can be entered at power-up (P502 must be enabled) or into P501 by keying in HH.MM.SS in a 24-hour format (military time). The hours and minutes must be separated by a decimal point. Entering seconds is optional, and if omitted, they are initially set to zero.

To specify seconds, use a decimal point to separate them from minutes. You do not have to enter leading zeroes. For example, if you enter 8.9.45 and press [ENTER], the time will be set to 08:09:45. If you enter 15.02 and press [ENTER], the time is set to 15:02:00.

If the time is entered improperly, the prompt "try h.m.s" is displayed.

Entering the Date
A new date can be entered at power-up (P502 must be enabled) or into P501 by keying in the numbers for MO.DA.YR (or DA.MO.YR if the international format was selected) and pressing [ENTER].

The month, day, and year entries must be separated by decimal points. You do not have to enter leading zeroes. For example, if you enter 8.1.96 and press [ENTER], the date is set to 08/01/96. If you enter the date improperly, the prompt "try m.d.y" (or "try d.m.y" for the international format) is displayed.

Operator Access to Time / Date
You can access and change the time and date directly from the weigh mode by keying in 11 [SELECT]. If P502 is set for "Enbld" (changeable), then you will be allowed to change the time when you select parameter 11. This allows end users to adjust the time without having to know the setup access code for the Model 672/675. If Parameter P502 is set for "Disbl", then the time/date can only be changed by accessing the setup mode at P500 and P501.

Time / Date Parameter Setup
Time and date setup parameters begin at P500 ®P504.
The default name used when transmitting the time & date parameter can be changed in the setup mode at P611.
