Configuring time of day mode tariffs using the display

When the meter is set to time of day for tariffs, the active tariff is determined by the day type, the start and end times, and the start and end dates.

The time of day tariff is not a calendar; the meter does not calculate the corresponding day of the week to a specific date, but February 29th is considered a valid date if you are programming the meter during a leap year.

When you enter tariff times using the front panel, be aware that the displayed minute value includes the entire minute. For example, an end time of 01:15 includes the time from 01:15:00 through 01:15:59. To create a tariff period that starts right after this, you must set the next tariff start time to 01:16. Although it may appear that there is a gap between these tariffs, there is not.
