TAC Xenta does not show the same time as TAC Vista.

TAC Xenta does not show the same time as TAC Vista.

Issue

TAC Xenta does not show the same time as TAC Vista.

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • TAC Vista Workstation
  • Xenta programmable controllers

Cause

The time in the Xenta comes from the Vista server. However, it can be adjusted for time zones and daylight savings time settings.

Resolution

Check daylight savings time and time zone settings in TAC Xenta. The setting should be the same as in the Operating Unit (if they are in the same time zone).

Check if a PVR object name XENTASYSREG is in the Menta application with a value of 2.

This inverts Europe daylight setting and causes the controller to adjust its time.

Note! This is NOT the regional settings on your PC, but the setting in the Vista object in your DB.

Here is a quick video showing the regional setting process.
