How do other users keep their fielded datalogger(s) in a network time synchronized? I have a base datalogger that has a GPS antenna and this time synchronizes just fine. That base datalogger has 10 other field stations that communicate via pakbus RF network. Those 10 stations have no GPS antennas and thier time drifts.
Any efficent ideas on how to synchronize this network
without creating constant radio traffic?
Thank You for taking the time to answer. I have one additional concern. When I observe the transaction and communication logs in status, I see a continuing clock check every second. It appears the base logger radio is continually transmitting to the field. Is this normal? Would this interfere with other data that is say a 3 sec running average updated every second? It would be nice if the base logger would only communicate say 1X per day and set the clocks in the field and then stop. Would you have any examples of CRBASIC code that would accomplish this?
