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

Issue:
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
 
Environment:
Any serial communication protocol
 
Cause:
Internal memory address for date and time are not included in the publically available documents.

Resolution:
 
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.
