ATR120 Electronic Time Clock

2009 DST Quick Guide

The starting and ending dates for Daylight Saving Time must be set each year. After the start of 2009, you can set the Daylight Saving Time change dates for 2009 so the clock will automatically adjust on the correct dates. Both the starting and ending dates must be set for automatic Daylight Saving Time adjustments to be operational.

General Information

To place the clock in the program mode, set the program switch located on back of clock in the upper left corner from NOR to PRO (top position). This now activates the six manual card-positioning switches (IN1, OUT1, etc.) on top of the clock to function as program switches. With the dust cover open you will find that these program switches are numbered 1–6 to simplify programming the ATR120.

The first switch on the top left of the clock (IN1) functions as the feature selection switch and will advance you through the program mode. Switches OUT1 through IN3 are used for programming. The last switch on the right (button six or OUT3) is used to save the program selection to memory. IMPORTANT: If OUT3 is flashing in the lower right corner of the display, the programmed changes have NOT been saved.

Setting DST Change Dates for 2009
  1. Enter the programming mode by setting the program switch on the back of the clock to the PRO position. The display will show your current pay period.
  2. Press IN1 / button one three times. The display reads S1 0–0 with S1 indicating the start of Daylight Saving Time.
  3. Press OUT2 / button four as needed to set the month to 3 (March).
  4. Press IN3 / button five to set the day to 8.
  5. Press OUT3 / button six to save the month and day Daylight Saving Time should start. OUT3 will no longer be displayed indicating this setting has been saved.
  6. The program will automatically switch to setting the ending date for Daylight Saving Time. The display should now read S2 0–0.
  7. Press OUT2 / button four as needed to set the month to 11 (November).
  8. Press IN3 / button five to set the day to 1.
  9. Press OUT3 / button six to save the month and day Daylight Saving Time should end. OUT3 will no longer be displayed indicating this setting has been saved.
  10. Return the program switch on the back of the clock to the NOR position.

Setting the Time Displayed on the Analog Clock Dial

The Daylight Saving Time settings outlined above will automatically adjust the digital display and the printer to and from Daylight Saving Time. You will need to manually reset the analog clock dial to synchronize it with the digital display and printer when the time changes.

The front cover must be opened to set the clock's analog time.

To open the front cover, turn the clock on its back and remove the two outer screws on bottom of clock. Stand the clock upright with the back facing you. With both thumbs press down on IN1 and OUT3 buttons while using your fingers to push cover away.

 

Once the front cover is open, you will be able to set the time on the dial.
