Pressing SET or + will temporarily display the date. Feb 19 looks like this in US mode:
The clock has a 2.1mm DC positive tip jack for power. Inside is a 7805 regulator so you can input 7-18VDC (we suggest 9VDC). There is a DC blocking diode so you shouldn't be able to damage the kit with a bad power supply unless its 20VDC or something!
If the alarm is going off, pressing a button will enter snooze mode.
Otherwise, pressing SET or + will display the date and then year instead of the time.
Pressing MENU will enter the configuration menu (see below for full tutorial on each configuration).
The MONOCHRON can act as an alarm clock! To turn on the alarm, flip the switch on the right side of the clock. When the LED is on the alarm is active, when the LED is off the alarm is off (easy to remember!)
If you press a button, that will put the clock into Snooze mode which will stop the beeping but keep flashing. After 10 minutes, the snooze will end and the alarm will continue to beep!
