Time synchronization


I am archiving some data using openHistorian, but the timestamps printed with the archived file do not match the current (pc) clock, is there a way that both can be synced? We are running several cases and it is essential to know what is the starting and ending time for each case.

Thank you, looking forward for your input.

I found the issue, openPDC works on UTC time.

However, I just ran some simulations and got my time in utc but the time openpdc is archiving is something different…

But the current utc time is different


All times in the openPDC and openHistorian are assumed to be UTC - regardless of local clock time zone.

This includes inputs, outputs and timestamps on the screen.

Hope that helps.
