Changing Date and Time on the Rapidlogge Unit

The Rapidlogger System is equipped with a battery backed clock. The system clock retains the correct time and date for up to 2 years. If the unit seems to be losing its date and time and reverting back to a date earlier than 2013 then it means that the clock battery needs to be changed. This tech note describes the process to change the Date and Time on the Rapidlogger Unit by three methods.


In order to change the date/time on the Rapidlogger Unit the RapidVu program can be used. You should only use program version number 4.1 or newer. The program is available on the Flash Drive that is shipped with your system OR you can download it from the Rapidlogger.com website. Before using this program the PC should be connected to the Rapidlogger System with an Ethernet cable or WiFi and the network setup should be completed. The network setup is described in a different document.
