How can I change the realtime clock in PCWE?

Can I easily use some functionblock for that or do I need change it in Linux Enviroment?

Hello Acke,

currently there is no firmware functionblock to set the RTC form PCWorx Engineer Applications.

You can use a shell/terminal to set the clock with different commands for example "date -s "

In the future we will supply services to set the clock from PC Worx Engineer applications.

An NTP service is already implemented.

I hope I can update you with a scedule soon.

Setting the time can be done in PC Worx Enginere here:

Hi Acke,

I've missed to update the post, sorry for that.

Those functions are not longer implemented as FW functionblocks.

Instead we're solving those topics via Bash commands which are wrapped in 61131 FBs, one of those libs is the PLCnextBase (https://www.plcnextstore.com/#/240).

You can read and set the datetime and a lot more, just have a look inside...
