About RDS


Never a second out - quartz era is over!


ACCUE RDS Clock, with patented technology, makes exactly accurate time available for Hong Kong. As long as ACCUE RDS Clock is placed within FM stations’ coverage areas, it can receive Radio Data System (RDS) time signal, and accordingly display the exactly accurate time.


There are various RCC clocks that synchronize with RCC time signal, which is another time signal system that is transmitted by only five countries, available in Hong Kong at present. However, the nearest RCC transmission stations are located in Henan of China, and Kyushu of Japan. With more than 1200km of distance from the two transmission stations, the RCC signal that can be picked up by an RCC clock is not strong enough for a reliable synchronization.


On the contrary, ACCUE RDS Clock selects and locks on local radio channels that transmit correct time signal* with our patented technique, hence offers reliable accuracy with convenience.
