    Time HH:MM:SS (24 hour format), HH:MM:SS AM or PM Use the 24-hour format to set the current time in UTC (GMT).
    Meter Time GMT, Local Select GMT to display the current time in UTC (Greenwich Mean Time zone). To display local time, set this parameter to Local, then use GMT Offset (h) to display local time in the proper time zone.
    GMT Offset (h) * ± HH.0 Available only when Meter Time is set to Local, use this to display the local time relative to GMT. Set the sign to plus (+) if local time is ahead of GMT, or minus (-) if local time is behind GMT.
