ABOUT WWVB (Radio Controlled Time)
The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology—Time and Frequency
Division) WWVB radio station is located in Ft. Collins, Colorado, and transmits the exact
time signal continuously throughout the United States at 60 kHz. The signal can be
received up to 2,000 miles away through the internal antenna in the Projection alarm.
However, due to the nature of the Earth’s Ionosphere, reception is very limited during
daylight hours. The Projection alarm will search for a signal every night when reception
is best.
The WWVB radio station receives the time data from the NIST Atomic clock in Boulder,
Colorado. A team of atomic physicists is continually measuring every second, of every
day, to an accuracy of ten billionths of a second per day. These physicists have created
an international standard, measuring a second as 9,192,631,770 vibrations of a Cesium133 atom in a vacuum. For more detail, visit http://www.boulder.nist.gov/timefreq.htm.
To listen to the NIST time, call (303)499-7111. This number will connect you to an
automated time, announced at the top of the minute in “Coordinated Universal Time”,
which is also known as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This time does not follow
Daylight Saving Time changes. After the top of the minute, a tone will sound for every
second. It is possible that your Projection Alarm may not be exactly on the second due to
the variance in the quartz. However, the clock will adjust the quartz timing over the
course of several days to be very accurate; under .10 seconds per day.

QUICK SET-UP GUIDE
1) Insert two AA batteries into the Projection alarm and/or plug into wall
2) Wait 10 minutes for WWVB reception.
3) If there is no WWVB reception, manually set the time and date (instructions
in the Program Mode).
4) Program the settings.
5) Mount the WT-5600 in a suitable location, where WWVB signal can be
received.
6) The projector will activate and remain on if the alarm clock is plugged in. If
only batteries are used, the projector will only be activated when a button is
pressed.
7) See the “Features” section for instructions on projection direction, etc.

DETAILED SET-UP GUIDE
BATTERY INSTALLATION
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Remove the battery cover.
Observe the correct polarity and install 2 AA batteries.
In addition or instead of
inserting batteries, the AC
adapter can be used. Simply
plug the adapter into the
receptacle on the bottom of
AC adapter
the alarm clock and then
receptacle
plug in adapter.
Replace the battery cover.
The projector will activate and remain on if the alarm clock is plugged in. If
only batteries are used, the projector will only be activated when a button is
pressed. The projection is a red light, not harmful under normal usage,
although care should be taken to not look directly into the light.
Note: After the batteries have been installed a tone will sound and the LCD
(Liquid Crystal Display) will activate. The date and U.S. map will be
displayed and the time will appear as “-:--”. The WWVB search is
automatically initiated and a tower icon appears and flashes with the time
colon (no tower icon will appear if the WWVB is too weak to be detected
and the time display will remain on “-:--”). While the WWVB search is
being conducted various numbers will appear in the time display. After 10
minutes, the Projection Alarm will either display the WWVB time, or
discontinue the search if the time is not found. If the search is cancelled “-:-” will remain in the time LCD. The Projection Alarm will conduct a
WWVB search every hour until the first signal is found. Once the WWVB
time is found, a search is automatically conducted nightly at midnight. If the
signal is found at midnight, the tower icon will appear. If not, another
search will take place every hour (until 6:00 am) until the signal is received
successfully. If no signal is found during this period, the tower icon will not
appear and the clock will search again at 12:00 am the next night.

PROGRAM MODE
To enter the Program Mode, hold down the “MODE+” button for 2 seconds, until the
time zone (“-5” default) flashes in the lower right. The Program Mode Guide is laid out
in a manner that allows you to program each function separately, or you can follow the
instructions entirely to program the Projection Alarm. Complete programming is usually
done for the initial set-up and will require you to skip step 1 of programming sections III
through VIII. Press the “SNOOZE” button at any time to exit the Program Mode or wait
approximately 15 seconds for the Projection Alarm to automatically return to normal
operation.

6.
When plugged into an AC outlet, the projection alarm can continuously
project the time.
When operating on batteries alone, the Projection Alarm will only project
when a button is pressed.
The projection will auto-focus for display from three to six feet away. A
dark surrounding will be necessary to clearly see the projection.
The direction of the display can be rotated 360° in 90° increments by
pressing the directional button. There is no display on the LCD that
signifies the direction.
The projector case can be rotated 180° to further help orient the projected
display.
The intensity of the projection can be adjusted to three different settings as
well as turned “off” by pressing the Light Intensity button. When turned off,
the projection will only come on when a button is pressed. The intensity
cannot be set for the projected display when set to “off”. When only
batteries are used, the intensity setting is set to “off” with no other options.

D. LCD LIGHT
1. The Projection Alarm has an LCD light designed for night viewing. This
will light up for 2 seconds whenever a button is pressed.
2. The LCD light cannot be turned on constantly; this would drain the batteries
and burn out the light.
E. TIME ALARM.

SETTING THE ALARM
a. Press and hold “AL” for two seconds until the alarm time is flashing.
b. Press the “MODE/+” button to select the hour.
NOTE: When setting the hour, “PM” will appear to the left of the alarm
time display. If it is set for “AM” nothing will appear.
c. Press the “AL” button to advance to the minute setting.
d. Press the “MODE/+” button to select the minutes.
e. Press the “AL” button to confirm the alarm setting and return to the

3.
TURNING ALARM OFF (WHILE SOUNDING)
Note: The alarm will sound for 23 seconds and then increase in volume and
speed for another 62 seconds (85 seconds total). If no button is pushed it
will shut off and be active for the next day.
a. While the alarm is sounding, press the “SNOOZE” bar to disable the
alarm for six minutes.
b. After the “SNOOZE” bar is pressed, the alarm icon will flash in the
lower left area of the display.
c. To disable the alarm for 24 hours, press any button other than
“SNOOZE” or projection keys.

MAINTENANCE & CARE
B. Extreme temperatures, vibrations and shock should be avoided to prevent
damage to the units.
C. Clean displays and units with a soft, damp cloth. Do not use solvents or
scouring agents—they may mark and damage the displays and casings.
D. Do not submerge in water.
E. Immediately remove all low powered batteries to avoid leakage and damage.
F. Replace with new batteries only and of recommended size.
G. Opening the casings invalidates the warranty. Do not try to repair the units.
