The Receiver can use several sources of time for internal events, alarms, and log record stamping. Depending on the user’s application the Receiver can use its internal RTC (Real Time Clock) engine or an external source with NTP capabilities.

The Receiver internal RTC can be manually set by entering new values in correspondent fields - Set year, Set month, etc.

If NTP-based synchronization is enabled, the Receiver will be trying to connect to the NTP server in specified intervals. The current status of the NTP synchronization is reported in the Status line on the Receiver UI Main Page:

Note: GPS is optional and available for AVQ1022 (1st Gen and Satellite) models only. For successful GPS-based synchronization, 3D Fix is required.
Note: Timestamp at the header section of the Report is based on the synchronization status of the unit - see Figure 2 and Figure 3 for reference
