HY OUR QUESTION TODAY IS THAT WE NEED TO RUN THE RTC PERMANENT OR
BATTERIES. CAN I USE A 3.6V BATTERY AND IF IS BETWEN GROUND AND PIN
21 THE CONECTION. CURIOS IN A PROGRAM WE PROGRAM THE RTC WITH
PUTTIMESTAMP AND IF YOU RUN THE PROGRAM AND PRINT THE VALUE YOU GET
THE RIGHT VALUE PRE PROGRAMED,BUT IF YOU RUN THE PROGRAM AGAING JUST
WITH THE GETTIMESTAMP YOU DONT GET THE PRE PROGRAMED DATA. LIKE NEVER
THE TC WAS PROGRAMED. THANKS IN ADVANCE

The BX-24 RTC reinitializes each time the machine is reset or repowered.
You will need an external RTC like the Dallas Semiconductor DS1302. You
will find examples of implementing the DS1302 in the Files section of
this Yahoo group. Tom
