Care and Maintenance
• Avoid placing the unit in areas prone to vibration and shock as these may cause
damage.
• Avoid areas where the unit can be exposed to sudden changes in temperature, i.e.
direct sunlight, extreme cold and wet/moist conditions as these will lead to rapid
changes which reduces the accuracy of readings.
• When cleaning the LCD and casing, use a soft damp cloth only. Do not use solvents or
scouring agents.
• Do not submerge the unit into water.
• Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and damage. Replace
only with new batteries of the recommended size.
• Do not make any repairs to the unit. Please return it to the original point of purchase for
repair by a qualified engineer. Opening and tampering with the unit may invalidate its
guarantee.

LCD1- DCF Radio controlled time, alarm and snooze
Once the batteries are inserted into the battery compartment, the Moon Phase Clock will
receive the DCF time within 3-5 minutes. Once received, all segments of the clock will
display the informations accordingly, then no further reception will take place for the DCF
signal that day.
The DCF reception takes places at 2:00 and 3:00 am each day. If the clock is unable to
receive the reception, it will attempt to receive the DCF time at the next full hour or as long
as it receives the DCF time successfully.
The time base for the radio controlled time is a Cesium Atomic Clock operated by the
Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt Braunschweig which has a time deviation of less
than one second in one million years. The time is coded and transmitted from Mainflingen
near Frankfurt via frequency signal DCF-77 (77.5 kHz) and has a transmitting range of
approximately 1,500 km. Your radio-controlled Moon Phase Clock receives this signal and
converts it to show the precise time in summer or wintertime. The quality of the reception
depends greatly on the geographic location. In normal cases, there should be no reception
problems within a 1500km radius of Frankfurt.
When the time code is received, the DCF tower becomes permanently lit and the time will
be displayed.
If the tower icon flashes, but does not set the time or the DCF tower does not appear at all,
then please take note of the following:
• Recommended distance to any interfering sources like computer monitors or TV sets is
a minimum of 1.5 - 2 meters.
• Within ferro-concrete rooms (basements, superstructures), the received signal is
naturally weakened. In extreme cases, please place the unit close to a window and/ or
point its front or back towards the Frankfurt transmitter.
• During nighttime, the atmospheric disturbances are usually less severe and reception is
possible in most cases. A single daily reception is adequate to keep the accuracy
deviation below 1 second.
LCD2- Date, weekday, Moon phase, seconds and indoor temperature
Once the DCF time has been received, the date (day and month) , weekday, Moon phase
and indoor temperature will be displayed accordingly.
Date and weekday
The date and weekday will be automatically displayed after the DCF time has been
received.
2. Checking the correct polarization, insert 2 x AA IEC LR6, 1.5V batteries into the battery
compartment and replace the battery cover.
3. Once the batteries are in place while beep sounds shortly, all segments of the LCD will
light up briefly. Then the indoor temperature, the time as 0:00, the date as 1/1, weekday
as MON and the Moon phase will be displayed.
4. The DCF-77 time code reception will automatically start. This takes typically between 3
- 5 minutes in good conditions. If after 10 minutes the DCF time has not been received,
the clock will automatically attempt to receive the DCF time at the next full hour. When
this is successful, the received time will be displayed. The date and Moon phase will
also be updated with the received time (Please refer also to notes on “Radio
controlled time”)
Batteries change
For best performance, batteries should be replaced at least once and a year to maintain
the best running accuracy. Ensure that the batteries used are new of the correct size.
Note:
Always wait for 2 minutes after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up
and transmission problems may occur.
Please help in the preservation of the environment and return used
batteries to an authorized depot.
