Changing Date and Time on the Rapidlogger Unit

The Rapidlogger System is equipped with a battery backed clock. The system clock retains the correct time and date for up to 2 years. If the unit seems to be losing its date and time and reverting back to a date earlier than 2010 then it means that the clock battery needs to be changed. The clock batter is of type CR1616 and is commonly available. This tech note describes the process to change the Date and Time on the Rapidlogger Unit by two methods.


In order to change the date/time on the Rapidlogger Unit the program called the "Rapidlogger Utility" is needed. This document describes the use of the "Rapidlogger Utility". You should only use version number or newer versions of this utility program. The program is available on the CD that is shipped with your system. Before using this program the PC should be connected to the Rapidlogger System with an Ethernet cable and the network setup should be completed. The network setup is described in a different document.
