How do I set the Time of Day(TOD) clock in the SY/MAX PLCs?

To set the TOD clock in a SY/MAX controller first enter a value of "-1" into register 8108, then enter the new values into the remaining TOD clock registers (8109-8115). Finally to update and restart the TOD clock enter a value of "0" into 8108. The following table illustrates the SY/MAX TOD clock registers and their function:
