Datamailbox Time zone (lastSynchroDate)

Dear all,
We are consuming eWon Tags nicely from the Datamailbox for the Flexys we have deployed. I did notice that there is a problem with the time stamps reported for each of these API messages. See details below.
The eWon has been deployed in a location that has US Central time.
I am currently based on a location that is NYC time zone (US Eastern time zone)
When i run the API messages to get data from eWon, they have two time stamps “lastSynchroDate”: “2021-08-26T13:07:57Z” and also date: Thu, 26 Aug 2021 13:10:18 GMT and the actual time when I ran this API was 09:17am Eastern time zone. See file attached with json message.

Two questions.
how can i get the datamailbox to send me the data with time stamps my current time zone (US Eastern time zone) or even better at the same timezone where the eWon has been deployed (US central time zone)?

Thank you for the comments

See Section 4.4 of the UTC Timestamp Logging Solution Sheet.

This explains how you can retrieve the data in different time zones.


Thank you for your comments. We have another question related to Datamailbox (M2Web and DMWeb). We have found that there are several ways to get the data out and the ones we are exploring are M2Web APIs and DMWeb APIs. See questions below.

Does the m2Web APIs retrieves the eWon tags data from the same place the DMWeb API (Datamailbox) does? In other other words both from the same location which is the datamailbox.

Does the m2Web API is retrieving the tags data directly from the eWon (not the datamailbox)?

Can you fully provide your answers to the questions above?



Here we have the two servers used for APIs services that I was referring on my previous email below.



Further to the 2 questions below.

No, the M2Web API exposes web services to query M2Web or the Ewon itself.

The Datamailbox stores historical data that is sent by the Ewon, and the DMWeb API is used to query this data.

This is all explained in detail at the links above.

Yes, it can do this. Here is an example using Export Block Descriptors:

Very appreciated answer Kyle!


You’re welcome.
