ATR440 Automatic Cross Shift Time Recorder

2018 DST Quick Guide

The starting and ending dates for Daylight Saving Time must be set each year. After the start of 2018, you can set the Daylight Saving Time change dates for 2018 so the clock will automatically adjust on the correct dates. Both the starting and ending dates must be set for Daylight Saving Time to be operational.

General Information

The programming mode is entered by unlocking and removing the top cover from the ATR 440 with the power on. The IN/OUT buttons on the clock serve as function keys in the programming mode. The functions of each button are listed below and on the inside cover of the recorder.
