RT procedure

Set RT system time and date from a browser

Browse directly to the Academic RIO Device network address to use the Web-Based Monitoring and Configuration tool. Note: The NI ELVIS III does not have the Web Interface for modifying these settings. Use NI Measurement and Automation Explorer (NI MAX) to modify these settings instead.
