Can the real time clock information (date and time) be set over a communication network in the Altivar Process Drives?

I want to set the date and time in the ATV630 (or ATV930) drive from my PLC or SCADA system.
Product Line:
Altivar Process
ATV630, ATV650, ATV660, ATV680
ATV930, ATV950, ATV960, ATV980
Any serial communication protocol
Internal memory address for date and time are not included in the publically available documents.

The Date and Time in the Altivar Process drives can be entered via the HMI keypad in Menu 8 [My Preferences] under the Date/Time Settings submenu.
They can also be read or modified over many of the serial communication protocols available.
