Real time clock in Industruino

has anyone programmed a real-time clock in Industruino ? I would like to program some time-related actions (occupancy schedule, for instance).

You'll need an RTC that uses SPI like the SparkFun DeadOn RTC (DS3234).  Most RTC boards use I2C and will have an address conflict with the ADC chip on the Industruino,  see this post:

As far as I know, Industruino doesn't have a RTC onboard.

The best solution is to get a DS1307 RTC and connect it to the I2C pins.

This can be done externally or internally.

Then there are many libraries available.

What Gary says is true, actually I used it on a Proto board, if you have an I/O kit the simplest solution is to use SPI.
