We have received many inquiries regarding the New Daylight Savings Time changes as a result of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 signed August 8th, 2005. This Act changed the start and end dates for Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. Beginning in 2007, Daylight Savings Time will begin
on the second Sunday in March and end the first Sunday in November. Therefore, for 2008, Daylight Savings Time will begin at 2:00AM on Sunday, March 9th, 2008 and end at 2:00AM on Sunday, November 2nd, 2008.
Please follow the steps below for your particular Iwatsu system.
The ECS system has the ability to automatically provide Daylight Savings Time changes. However, in software releases prior to version 2.10 (January 2007), the changes follow the old Daylight Savings Time standard.
To adjust the clock settings on ECS systems running software releases prior to 2.10, perform the following steps from an attendant station:
1) Press the Speaker button SPKR
2) Wait for the dial tone
3) Press the Feature button FEAT then dial 6 + 4
4) Dial the time in military time H H : M M
5) Wait for a confirmation tone
6) Press the Speaker button SPKR
Iwatsu Voice Networks provided an update to the ECS system with the release of version 2.10 to accommodate the New Daylight Savings Time dates. All software versions 2.10 and higher provide for the new time change. Contact your dealer with questions about which software
version was installed in your system.
ADIX-VS, ADIX-APS and ADIX Systems
From the Operator DSS when idle:
Press [ICM] + [FEAT] +  + 
Enter the time [HH MM] using the 24 hour military clock
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that all ADIX Systems supported the Daylight Savings Time change based upon the prior standard. Therefore, the feature to enable daylight savings time should be set to disable in order to prevent these systems from changing the system time based
upon the old Daylight Savings Time schedule.
The Omega-Voice VMI system (IX-4EVMC, IX-4VML, VS-VML,
IX-4SEVMC) does not provide an automatic Daylight Savings Time change feature. Therefore, all Omega-Voice VMI systems require the time to be manually changed via the System Editor.
