RADIO CONTROLLED CLOCK WITH BACKLIGHT

RADIO CONTROLLED CLOCK WITH BACKLIGHT
MODEL : RM116E
RADIO CONTROLLED CLOCK
WITH
Congratulations on your purchase of the first auto-setting always-accurate alarm
clock ! We want you to be very happy with this product,but please remember
this is a radio wave device and not an perfect science. There are certain areas
of the Eastern united States (see map) where urban interference or signals
from United Kingdom’s radio control tower may distort or delay the time
setting signal. Even thought these areas may have more difficulty receiving a
signal, the Radio Controlled Clock contains a very accurate quartz movement
and will maintain a precise time even if the radio signal is missed on occasion.

Battery Installation
Your RM116E is shipped with two AAA batteries. These batteries should last for
approximately one year depending on the amount of your use of the HiGlo™
backlight, With convenience and practicality of this dramatic backlighting system
comes somewhat shorter battery life.
To : activate the unit you must FIRST REMOVE THE PROTECTVE
BATTERY TABS which keep the batteries fresh and ready for use during shipment. Simply slide the battery compartment door up and remove this cover to
expose the batteries, Remove the two small plastic tabs and The RM116E is ready
to receive a timekeeping signal.
Please do not become alarmed if the unit does mot receive signal directly from
the box. The unit will receive most dependable and interference free signal
automatically between Midnight and 4 a.m. If you have any questions please give
us a call at 800-853-8883 or reach us by email to [email protected]
Radio Controlled Clock:
The RM116E will automatically synchronize current time and
date with the signal broadcast by the US Atomic Clock when
the product is in reception range of the signal. When the unit is
new and just out of the box, synchronization with the U.S. atomic
clock can take upto 72 hours. The unit will receive the most
dependable and interference free signal automatically between
Midnight and 4 AM.
When the unit is receiving radio signal, the reception icon will
start to blink. The reception icon will show either strong, weak
or no signal depending on the strength of the radio signal. A
complete reception generally takes about 2 to 5 minutes.
Setting the Month
- Strong
Press and hold MODE button until the hour segment of the time display flashes.
Press MODE button three more times until you see the month digit flash on the
display.
- Weak
Press D button until the desired month appears on the display
Press Mode button three more times to exit the set mode and resume normal time
keeping.
- No Reception
Setting the Date
- Receiving
Press and hold MODE button until the hour segment of the time display flashes
Press MODE button four more times until you see the date flash on the display.
Press Dbutton until the desired date appears on the display.
When the reception is completed the reception icon will stop
blinking. The reception icon will show [ ] for no Reception or
[
] for successful reception.
For best signal reception, place the RM116E away from other
equipment that emit RF or microwave signals such as TV's,
radios, PC's or microwave ovens. Other causes for signal
interference include electrical power transmission towers, steel
reinfoced concrete construction, and/or metal siding.
You may need to reposition the clock for maximum reception.
Radio Frequency appliances and radios, such as the Radio
Controlled Alarm Clock, perform best when placed near a
window.
After receiving the initial signal, updates are accomplished with
greater ease. Even though there are areas that may have more
difficulty in receiving a signal, the RM116E Alarm Clock
contains very accurate quartz movement and will retain precise
time even if a signal is missed on a rare occasion.
Press MODE button two more times to exit the set mode and resume normal time
keeping
IMPORTANT : As soon as any manual setting changes are made, the display
will indicate a loss of signal strength (see SIGNAL STRENGTH INDICATOR) to
indicate that the clock is now running on manual settings instead of signals received from the Atomic Clock.
Setting Language
Press and hold MODE button until the hour segment of the time display flashes.
Press MODE button five more times until you see a single letter (E, For S) appear
on the display next to the time.
