Description

CANADUINO Atomic Clock AM Receiver module V3 for 60kHz and 77.5kHz is the most advanced and best-equipped AM Atomic Clock Receiver module for DIY projects available today.

We designed this product around the awesome receiver chip from Micro Analog Systems (Finland). This module is in particular designed for use with microcontrollers in an operating voltage range of 2 to 15V, and standard logic levels 3.3 / 5V.

The kit includes a high-quality, fine-tuned 60kHz antenna with a Q-factor of over 100.

This module can receive the atomic clock AM signals transmitted by (for example):
– WWVB (US/Canada)
– JJY60 (Japan)
– MSF (England)

The advantages over other modules from other manufacturers:
– wide operating voltage range 2* to 15V
– 60 mm tuned high-gain, high-Q antenna
– current consumption <100µA (LEDs off)
– super high sensitivity of 0.4V (RMS)
– power down control pin
– fast start-up
– AGC control on/off

The kit needs soldering. Crystal, antenna, and pin header are not factory assembled.

If you don’t want to develop your own code, you can find many projects online, using our receiver kit, like for example Bruce Hall’s perfectly documented WWVB Clock with TFT colour display:
Bruce Hall’s Atomic Clock Project Description, Instructions and Code on GitHub

Please also check Andrew Hooper’s WWVB clock Arduino project and Benjamin Russel’s AVR-ASM-WWVB-Atomic-Clock on GitHub.

We highly recommend reading the official Wikipedia article about WWVB (Fort Collins) time signal to better understand how these clocks work.

Documentation CANADUINO Atomic Clock Receiver Kit (V2)

We decided not to publish a new manual for the new module since the differences from the predecessor are only minimal.

* The module will work as expected with a voltage of as low as 2V. But the LEDs might not work as expected. We recommend a minimum voltage of 3V.

    To CANADUINO 60kHz Atomic Clock Receiver Module WWVB MSF JJY60 Customers,
    I’ve purchased several of these units from Universal-Solder – not a lot of work to do the minimal soldering; and I even connected to a clock module from a different vendor/manufacturer and it worked fine. So, this works as advertised – have fun with the 60kHz WWVB signaling from Colorado (for those based in the US, of course).

    Regards,
    John Westmoreland

    Remarkable little receiver and antenna! It is fairly easy to assemble, but there were no explicit instructions on how to do so. Solder the crystal and the header pins. Connect 3.3V and ground, and ground the PDN pin. At 3pm local time here in Florida, 1500 miles away from the WWVB transmitter in Colorado, with thunderstorms 20 miles away, my clock had sync within 2 minutes. I’m shocked! All my other commercial receivers don’t have a chance unless it is after midnight. The board and soldering are very high quality. I’m glad I bought a 2nd module so I have one to play with while the first runs my desk clock. A+++
