Setting Daylight Saving Time for model PIX-3000x
Setting Daylight Saving Time (DST) Start and End Times for
the Amano PIX-3000x Time Clocks
The following information is effective for Year 2007 and later for U.S.-based time clocks
Note: The following DST changes are necessary because of the government-mandated change for new
start and end date for all US states that observe the DST calendar beginning in 2007.
Do not modify your time clock’s DST setting until after November 5 th , 2006. Otherwise, you will create a
conflict with your 2006 settings.

About the DST Change:
From 1986 to 2006, DST started the first Sunday in April and ended the last Sunday in October.
Starting in 2007, DST starts the second Sunday in March and ends the first Sunday in November.
If you have not adjusted the DST start- and end-times for your time clock, proceed with the following
instructions.
Your Amano Time Clock is programmed with the old DST calendar structure. A one-time customization
change will allow your clock to correctly set itself for the new DST structure for 2007 and each year
thereafter.
For your reference, dates for DST change are as follows for the period of 2007 to 2011:
2007: March 11 - Nov. 4
2008: March 9 - Nov. 2
2009: March 8 - Nov. 1
2010: March 14 - Nov. 7
2011: March 13 - Nov. 6
Note that although the date is different each year, you need only change the start and end times once for
the change to take effect each year thereafter through the year 2099.
Hawaii and Arizona will be the only U.S. states that do not observe DST after 2006.
The Daylight Saving Time Function operates in the following manner:
•
When 2:00 am comes on the first day of daylight saving time, the clock automatically gains one
hour to show 3:00 am. (The clock will change from 1:59 am to 3:00 am for beginning of DST.)
•
When 2:00 am comes on the last day of daylight saving time, the clock will automatically lose
one hour and return to 1:00 am. (The clock will change from 1:59am to 1:00am for the end of
DST.)

Overview of how to Set the PIX-3000x for DST Operation
There are two options for DST adjustment:
•
Manually enter a program code twice a year (at DST transition times) to either add or subtract an
hour from the current time.
•
Make two one-time adjustment to the time clock. These adjustments program the time clock as to
the start date and end date for DST. Once those dates are set, the rolling calendar function will
apply the correct hourly adjustment on the appropriate dates each year.
Each of the DST adjustment options is explained below.
Manual Daylight Saving Time Adjustment
The PIX-3000x has a “ONE HOUR ADJUST” mode, which enables you to manually adjust the display
for Daylight Saving Time. This adjustment will immediately subtract or add one hour to the time in the
display and is accomplished by entering in the appropriate code when the display is in the “ONE HOUR
ADJUST” mode.

0
No hour change
1

Automatic Daylight Saving Time Adjustment
The PIX-3000x can be programmed to adjust for Daylight Saving Time automatically. To do so, you
must specify the dates that the Daylight Saving Time period will begin and end. The hour will be added at
2:00 AM on the Begin Date and be subtracted at 2:00 AM on the End Date.
The new start date and end date need only be changed once, since the clock’s rolling calendar function
auto-calculates the start date and end date for DST every year thereafter.
Note: To disable the Automatic Daylight Saving Time Adjustment, set the Begin Date and End Date to
the same value.
