Difference in collected data time and real time


I will get straight to the point.

I have a PXI 1031 that has 2 modules (PXI 4462 & PXI 8820) and 1 touch screen (TPC 2215). When I collect data, the time corresponding to data is different from the real time. For example, if data is collected at 1:00PM, the data sample will indicate that it was collected at 3:00PM.


What is the problem here? Also, what are the measures I can take to synchronize the time of my NI components with the real time?


Thank you.

Let me guess: you live on the West Coast.  NI equipment is set up as Central Time.  So change your time zone.
