Model 175 Multi-Function Side Printing Time Recorder, Time Stamp or Numbering Machine

2018 DST Quick Guide

Note: If you previously programmed your Model 175 for the updated DST change dates, you should not have to program the DST change dates again for 2018. The unit remembers the start date as the second Sunday in March and the end date as the first Sunday in November. Once set, the clock automatically updates the settings every year thereafter. No further manual setting is necessary unless the law regarding the start and end dates of DST changes again.

Use the instructions below if you did not set up your clock previously for automatic DST change dates or for whatever reason need to change your DST programming for 2018.

General Information

Although the 175 is already running on a lithium battery when you receive it, the clock must be plugged in to a steady power source in order to perform any of the following functions.

To program the machine, remove the case to access the five tactile switches, SW5 to SW1, located below the LCD display. Note that pressing and holding these switches will cause the setting options to advance faster.
