C600RS: DCF77 radio clock with serial RS232 interface


Serial DCF77 radio clock with integrated power supply and free running clock in plastic housing and integrated power supply (incl. antenna and 5m cable)

Key Features

Years of warranty: 2 RoHS compliant




Product Description

The radio remote clock C600RS has been designed for applications where only the serial interface is used to transmit information on date and time to other devices. The clock has an enhanced LF receiver and is manufactured using surface mounting technology (SMT). The elevtronic assembly is mounted in a plastic case with four LEDs in the front panel which let the user monitor the clock's status.

RS232 interface and 20mA input/output circuits. Pulse per second and pulse per minute. These pulses are made available at the DB25 connector via optocoupler outputs. The P_SEC pulse is also available with RS-232 level (-3..12V/+3..12V).
