Beckhoff BC9000 FB_SNTP Clock Synchronization


Thread Starter


Hello everyone,

I'm doing a Building Automation with PLC Beckhoff BC9000.
Being the PLC free of hardware real-time clock, after the boot of PLC it is necessary a clock synchronization with the current time and date.

The Beckhoff documentation says to use the function block FB_SNTP that is able to synchronize the clock of the BC9000 with a time server on the Internet.

The function block FB_SNTP should be contained in the library TcIpUtilitiesBC.lb6. that however it does not include this function block...

I've looked for everywhere but I didn’t find the function block FB_SNTP.

Have some of You already faced this problem or know where to find the function block FB_SNTP?

Thanks a lot
