Time synchronization on Freelance
I have problem with time synchronization between Controllers and PC.
When I try to use the function Set System time it shows correct time, same as the PC
but in real the clock in the controller is way off.
Can somebody give me a hint, please.
I run Freelance 2019 SP1 and W10.
if I understand you right you are setting the time from the Engineering PC in a controller, but the controller shortly afterward shows a big time gap again?
Most probably the Engineering tool is using the wrong broadcast address.
Is the IP-Adress of the engineering tool in the Freelance Network configuration correct? It might be wrong if you use several network cards. Try to correct it in the tool (not sure you can do it there) Does the Subnet mask fit to the IP?
You could try to use the diagnostic interface of the controller (either via serial cable or via Telnet via Ethernet). In this case, you need to select the controller which is time master.
That is usually the controller with the lowest resource ID.
Hope that helps.
