Express LPC
You can set the time and date configuration of the LPC’s real time clock in one of two ways. Both
require you to attach a video monitor to the LPC. Method one is to attach a Remote Focus Unit to the
LPC. Method two is to take advantage of the LPC autocontrols. You can also set the astronomic clock
when using an RFU, but not when using the LPC autocontrols. Astronomic clock settings, however,
are needed only if your real time programs reference sunrise or sunset.
If you need to set the LPC astronomic clock, you can perform those settings in either an Express
console or in Expression Off-Line. They become part of the system configuration components, which
can then be read into the LPC from a show file. See Reading a showfile, page 7 of the Express LPC
Quick Guide 3.1, for more information about reading a showfile’s system configuration components.
NOTE: Clock settings are retained in the LPC memory even if the power is temporarily removed.
Once set, you should not need to reset the clock, but you may need to revise the setup later if, for
example, power is removed for a long time or you need to set the astronomic clock.
