MSF receiver for atomic clocks

Atomic Technology

Transmitters across Europe and one in North America broadcast long-wave signals carrying comprehensive information on the time of day(hours, minutes and seconds) and date (year, month, day). With suitable technology and sensitive antennae, this signal may be receivedwithin a radius of 1,500km around the transmitter. We are offering suitable products for the most important time signals in the world,including ), MSF (England), DCF 77 (Germany, WWVB (USA). The radio-controlled clocks operate as highly accurate quartz clocks that aresynchronised to the broadcast atomic clock time signal.

active antennae

Active Antennae

The active antenna mounted within a plastic enclosure receives the amplitude modulated signals from the time code transmitter (DCFor MSF). The open collector output delivers the demodulated signal for subsequent processing by a decoding circuit. The antenna isconnected by a three wire cable and a stereo type cinch connector.
Bandwidth: 700Hz
Dimensions: (120x20x19)mm

msf receiver modules and antennae

MSF Receiver Modules and Antennae

When combined with a ferrite antenna, the receiver module acts as a complete unit for the reception of time code signals. With an additionallevel matching circuit, the demodulated output signal can be used to directly drive a decoding circuit. The module can be adapted to anyavailable transmitter by simply replacing the crystal.
EM2 Operating Voltage: 1.5 - 3V
Dimensions: (13x25x10)mm

microcontroller module

Microcontroller Module (MCM)

For applications with little technical overhead, a range of modules was developed for combination with the EM series of receiver modulesand an antenna to create a radio controlled clock system. The modules consist of a 4 bit microcontroller including suitable peripheralfunctions and provides a RS232 output of the Time, Date, Day of week, Year, etc.

Dimensions: (21x5.7x10)mm

Receiver IC's

The receiver IC and the CPU are the heart of any radio controlled clock. The receiver IC is responsible for receiving and demodulatingthe time information transmitted by time code transmitters in the long wave band. The products based on the principle of a straightreceiver were specifically designed for low power operation and high gain.
