LCD Display Shows Two Rows of Bars



TimeIPS contains a hardware battery that continues to provide power to internal systems during shut down. If the TimeIPS system has an internal battery that is depleting or another situation occurs that disrupts the internal components, such as a power surge, the BIOS settings may need to be adjusted.

NOTE: Your system's model number is identified by the three numbers following the "S" in the system's serial number. The serial number can be found on the sticker on the back of your unit, on the back of your Installation and Users Guide, or in the page footer of your TimeIPS pages.

EXAMPLE: The serial number A05106S14201400 is a Model 142 system (since the model number begins with the number 1, refer to Model Number 1XX instructions below). The serial number A04153S25100070 is a Model 251 system (since the model number begins with number 2, refer to the Model 2XX instructions).



NOTE: Modification of BIOS settings can put your time clock into an inoperable state. For this reason, we recommend, contacting our support department prior to any changes.
