how to configure afwime service in 800xa system
I am newer to industrial automation system.we are here to operate substation automation system for switchgear monitoring and all system implimented by ABB. we are using 800xa with ac800m controllers. nowdays we are getting some problem with date and time. gps clock is the main time source for all server and work station in the network. two connectivity server configured as redundant time server and remining all servers are PPA clients. i tried to disable windows time service to update time from gps server unfortunatley time update option not available and its only availble when windows time service enabled. i assume that problem becuase of configuration issues.would you provide some idea about where i can configure afwime service in 800xa system or suggest me some referance documents. i hope you may help beacuase matter is very urgent kinldy replay asap
thank you very much for your attention
ABB recommends to connect GPS to the control network to get the better time accuracy of <200ms so inturn the AC800M controllers you have to configure as SNTP clients(enter the IP address of the GPS in the AC800M controller settings) and let the connectivity servers (Primary and redundant) acts as CNCP slaves configure these as time service providers & disable the windows in all workstations including connectivity servers this is the case when you are not using DOmain servers.
If you are using domain servers then make the routing table enable in the connectivityservers and take the time directly for the domain servers by entering the gateway IP address as connectivity servers in the GPS and enable windows time as well in the Domain and use domain as SNTP client.
Please follow the system 800xA network configuration manual its clearly written
