50 Hz means the electric generator rotates 50 times per second.
And then electricity oscillates or reverses polarity 50 times per second.
Products rated for 60 Hz will not operate correctly with 50 Hz power.

Cloc gains time


well without the make and model number I can only answer generally , most clock radios use the power line to sync the time base (60 hertz=60 seconds = 1 minute=60 minutes=1 hour) , but they use a internal time base generator when running on battery back-up (that's not so accurate) , I had one some time back that a customer plugged into a switched outlet (unknown to them) in there room and it did exactly the same thing it gained about seven minutes every day , me id check the outlet its plugged into to see if its on all the time (a quick test 4 this is to remove battery back up ) clock will then flash to be reset if you come back later to see it when the power was shut off

I recently purchased an Audiovox Clock Radio CR20 from the USA on a visit to that country. I am back in my home country India and started using the clock radio. I find that the clock is not keeping correct...


The reason of your problem is that your local mains frequency is 50 Hz and when you use 230V to 120V converter, this simple device can not convert frequency only the voltage. Your clock is synchronized to the mains frequency which is 50 Hz instead of 60 Hz and the clock goes slowly. It is late (60-50)/60 ---> 10 minutes in every hour.
I am sorry but I think your problem can not be fixed. ( It would be possible to convert the frequency but the cost of this kind of device would be higher than the value of this Audiovox)

Thanks.

50 hertz microwave to send in Philippines which frequency is50-60


u.s. is all 60 hz. not sure in the phillipines,the only issue is it will cook slower due to the lower input frequency, it shows no electronic control board in the diagram, sometimes a different freq. can throw electronics off i.e. the clock would run slower and not keep accurate time on 50 hz. as it would on 60hz.

Clock runaway


You are right on, the clock is using the 50 hertz to keep time expecting it too be 60 hertz.

Emerson Research Clock modelSmartSet


The problem is most likely the frequency of the A/C power there. In the US our power runs at 60 cycles p/second and the alarm clock uses this to set the time. Sounds like India is running 50 cycles like Europe does. Most likely there is a jumper in the clock because the Ckt board on mine shows a 50/60 hertz setting but with out the board schematics I wouldn't have a clue how to fix it. Sorry not to help more...

JCR-160 clock radio Clock running slow


The clock works off the frequency (hertz). In US the electrical wave frequency is 60HZ/sec and in India and many other countries 50HZ/sec. Hence, the clock slows down about 6 seconds or so every minute.
