WISE Time Synchronization Function


Time Synchronization Introduction

WISE-580x offers Time Synchronization through network. It allows to connect to pre-set SNTP Server for Time Synchronization to ensure the accuracy and reliability of RTC(Real-time clock) and schedule.

 

Time Synchronization Setting

The configuration page is shown as below:

 

Follow the following steps:

  1. In the “Sync Interval” field, select the time interval to specify how often will the WISE-580x automatically connect to SNTP time server for time synchronization through the network. If you select “disable”, it means the time synchronization function will not be performed.
  2. In the “SNTP Time Server” field, input the IP address or domain name of the SNTP Time Server. Please refer to the link: “time.windows.com”- this is a standard SNTP server from Microsoft for Windows operating system to synchronize the system time.
  3. In the “Port” field, input the port number which the SNTP time server open for connection, the default port number will be “123”.
  4. In the “Time Zone” field, select the time zone from the dropdown list.

NTP Server

Quick List for NTP Server:

The following table lists several common NTP servers and settings:

Location Server Address Time Zone (GMT/UTC)
Taiwan time.stdtime.gov.tw +8
China 210.72.145.44 +8
America time.windows.com -5 ~ -8

NTP Pool:

NTP Pool is a website that contains cluster of various NTP servers. Select one site and it will automatically connect to an available server for Time Synchronization. It provides easy access to NTP server without worrying access restriction to NTP servers. You can find the connecting sites from the following website. Please select one nearby server for faster Time Synchronization connection or select a site contains wider range area for easier access to the servers
