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. SPECIFICATIONS Indoor temperature measuring range : TO ACTIVATE / DEACTIVATE THE ALARM: The alarm will automatically be ON upon entering and exiting the Alarm setting mode. To desactivate the alarm (OFF), use the ALM key in normal mode display. Indoor temperature checking interval : Power source : SNOOZE SETTING Battery life Dimensions (L x W x H) • • When pressing the SNOOZE key during alarm sounding, the snooze function is activated for a duration of 9 full minutes. When keeping the SNOOZE key during alarm sounding for 1 second, after confirmation of a "beep“ sound, the alarm will switch OFF for the next 24 hours and no snooze function will be activated. Note: If the SNOOZE key is pressed for about 1 second, except during alarm ringing, it will display the alarm time for about 4 seconds. POSITIONING THE MOON PHASE CLOCK The Moon Phase Clock can be either free standing or hanging on a wall: To free stand: Simply unfold the 2 stands at the back of the clock and place on a flat surface. To wall mount: 1. 2. Fix a screw into the desired wall, leaving the head extended out by about 5mm Using the Moon Phase Clock‘s hanging hole, carefully hang it onto the screw. Note: Always ensure that the Moon Phase Clock locks onto the screw before releasing. : : 0ºC to +50ºC with 0.1ºC resolution 32ºF to +122ºF with 0.2ºF resolution ("--.-" displayed if outside this range) every 10 seconds 2 x AA, IEC LR6, 1,5V batteries (Alkaline batteries recommended) about 12 months 238 x 25 x 260mm LIABILITY DISCLAIMER • • • • • • The manufacturer and supplier cannot accept any responsibility for any incorrect readings and any consequences that occur should an inaccurate reading take place. This product is only designed for use in the home This product is not to be used for medical purposes or for public information. The specifications of this product may change without prior notice. This product is not a toy. Keep out of the reach of children No part of this manual may be reproduced without written authorization of the manufacturer. 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.

INTRODUCTION Congratulations on purchasing this state-of-the-art Moon Phase Clock as an example of superior design and engineering. Providing radio-controlled time, date, indoor temperature display, and Moon phases, this innovative clock is ideal for home or office use. Operation of this product is simple and straightforward. By reading this operating manual, the user will receive a better understanding of the functions and the optimum benefit of all its features. Moon Phase Clock: Hanging Holes R A D IO C O N T R O L LE D 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. 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 30 seconds after removing the batteries before reinserting, otherwise start up and transmission problems may occur.
