  • Clock works  from 9 to 12V DC, but 12V DC supply is recommended.

    2.3mW (0.75mA@3V) from backup battery ( 3V CR2032).
  • To keep power consumption at low level, do not connect load <100KOhm to the external alarm contact.
  • Internal buzzer generates simple one tone and  pause sound in Alarm1 or Alarm2 events. It will last for 1 minute, but could be shut off by pressing the button.
  • External alarm contacts set logical "1" ( about 4.5V DC) in the alarm event and gives you extra feature allowing to connect quality sound melody generator or any external  modules via appropriate converter or power control circuit (not included in this sale)
  • Frequency Test Mode can be activated to easily check and adjust clock frequency. In this mode Clock does not display or keep time and date, for 3 seconds it  displays 2000 00, which means  200KHz, than display switches off and  frequency check signal  is activated on the dedicated output pin. Use it to check it, if you have calibrated precision frequency meter or use this signal for your calibration purposes.
