How this block appears in a Simulink model?¶
What can be configured?¶
|Configuration Parameter||Selectable Option/Value||Description|
|Mode||Write to external RTC--UNIX timestamp--Custom||Select the output mode of the time|
|Sample time (sec)||-1 (inherited) or specify||Specify the sample time|

This block can be used to acquire time from your ESP32.
How does this block work?¶
In order to get the current date and time from this block, it should be used along with WIFI Block and the NTP Block. This block acquire the current time of the specified time zone from the NTP Block via internet and use the internal timers of the ESP32 to keep track of it.
