Estimated reading time: 2 min

The 1-6 keys on top of the clock serve as function keys in programming mode. Note that the functions are printed on the card door above the column numbers.

To enter programming mode, open the front cover and move the switch found under the function keys from Run to Prog. Navigate through the different programming modes by pressing the Mode button and enter them by pressing Enter. The setting code will be reflected on the lower left of the screen and will move in increments when changes have been done.

Note: If a password has been set on the clock, a “– – – –” prompt will appear when entering Program Mode. Enter your password to access the clock menus. If you misplace your password, contact Acroprint at (800) 334-7190 for assistance.
