ES1000 (Non-Atomic) Totalizing Payroll Recorder

2018 DST Quick Guide

Note: If you programmed your non-atomic ES1000 previously 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 for automatic DST change dates or for whatever reason need to change your DST programming for 2018.

General Information

To enter the program setting mode, plug the AC cord into the AC outlet and remove the silver cover. Press and hold the [SETTING START/END] button until four dashes is shown on a display and you go into setting mode.
