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 Cesium-133 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 0.10 seconds per day.

QUICK SET-UP GUIDE
Hint: Use good quality Alkaline Batteries and avoid rechargeable batteries.
1. We recommend beginning the set-up procedure at night when the
WWVB signal is easiest to receive.
2. It is also highly recommended to set the projection alarm in a window
or other area free of interference in the area of your home that is
closest to Colorado (the source of the WWVB signal).
NOTE: The above steps are not required but can help the projection
alarm receive the signal faster.
3. Place the batteries into the projection alarm clock.
4. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS FOR 15 MINUTES.
NOTE: It is important to not press any buttons after inserting batteries as
this will interrupt the WWVB search sequence.
In this time the display will show both the indoor temperature and humidity. If the
station does not display both indoor temperature and indoor humidity after the 15
minutes please retry the set up as stated above. After both indoor temperature
and indoor humidity are displayed for 15 minutes you can place your projection
alarm in your desired location.
To complete the set up of your temperature station after the 15 minutes have
passed please follow the steps beginning on page 6.

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
underneath of the alarm clock and then 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,
AC adapter
although care should be taken to not look
receptacle
directly into the light.
Notes:
•
After the batteries have been installed a tone will sound, and the LCD (Liquid
Crystal Display) will activate.
•
The indoor temperature/humidity will be displayed. Also, 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 15 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 remain, if not, another search
will take place every hour (until 6:00 am) until the signal is found 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.
•
The radio-controlled time receiver is located on the bottom side of the projection
alarm. When using the AC adaptor be sure to keep the adapter cord away from
the bottom side of the unit as if the wire is too close it can cause weakened
reception sensitivity.

PROGRAM MODE
To enter the Program Mode hold down the “MODE/MIN” button for 3 seconds, until the time
flashes in the top of the display. 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 and 2 of programming sections D and E. To exit the setting mode
simply wait approximately 10 seconds for the projection alarm to automatically return to normal
operation.

F.
The projection alarm measures indoor temperature with an internal sensor.
This temperature is displayed in °F.
The indoor temperature will take time to adjust to the surrounding temperature as the
sensor is inside the case.
If the remote temperature is placed next to the projection alarm, more often than not
the temperature will not be exact with one another. This is not a defect, but simply
reflects the difference in measuring methods. The remote temperature is designed for
changing temperature at a wide range.

G.
The projection alarm has an LED backlight designed for night-viewing. This will light
up for 4 seconds whenever the snooze button is pressed.
The LED backlight cannot be turned on constantly; this would drain the batteries.
The projection alarm measures indoor humidity with an internal sensor.
This humidity is displayed as a percentage (%).
The indoor humidity will take time to adjust to the surrounding humidity as the sensor
is inside the case.
