Whilst this was certainly possible, It was never easy, and made it uncomfortable to give a Nixe Clock as a gift in case a tube ever failed. With the QTC system (Quick Tube Change), each tube is soldered only to its own mini tube cell PCB. A tube can be changed in minutes with no danger to the main PCB. The small addition in cost is dwarfed by the huge advantage this gives.
A single main board is capable of driving tens of different types of solder-in Nixie Tube. You can even completely change the tube type of your clock by installing new tube cells and tubes. Hours, Minutes and Seconds display on Six IN-14 tubes with 18mm digit height (Not included). Uses a Quartz Crystal Oscillator as the timebase.
12 or 24 hour modes. Date display in either DD. Programmable date display each minute.Scrolling display of date or standard display. Alarm, with programmable snooze period. Optional GPS / WiFi / XTERNA.
Synchronisation with status indicator LED. Dedicated DST button to switch between DST and standard time. Keeps time during short power outages. Simple time setting using two buttons. Configurable for leading zero blanking.
Double dot colon neon lamps. Seconds can be reset to zero to precisely the set time. Programmable night mode - blanked or dimmed display to save tubes or prevent sleep disturbance.
Rear Indicator LEDs dim at night to prevent sleep disturbance. Weekday aware Master Blank function to turn off tubes and LEDs on weekends or during working hours.
Separate modes for colon neons during night mode. Standard, fading, or crossfading with scrollback display modes. Slot Machine Cathode poisoning prevention routine.Programmable RGB tube lighting select your favourite colour palette. Have a different colour or your choosing every hour, or autochanging colours. Not AC frequency dependent works in all countries. All user preferences stored to non-volatile memory.
Additional wireless functions if XTERNA module used: - Display of outdoor temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit. Min / Max temperature in last 24 hours. Wireless, Auto Sync of time from GPS with auxilliary TCXO. GPS Sync time, and time since last GPS Fix. Voltage of XTERNA module battery.
Download Kit Assembly Instructions from the PV Electronics Website. Cathodes are driven by a modern HV5812 High Voltage Driver IC by Microchip. With 20 outputs, it is able to drive the six Nixie Tubes in a very comfortable and low noise 3X2 multiplex. A range Auto Synchronisation options are available: GPS, WiFi, or our exciting new XTERNA Wireless Time and Temperature Transmitter. The following electronic components are provided, including.6 X Tube cell components for mounting the tubes All transistors, resistors, capacitors, ICs, diodes 4 X Neon bulbs for hours:minutes:seconds separators Double sided, plated - through - hole PCB with black solder resist Fully pre-programmed PIC microcontroller, with socket RGB LED Tube Lighting Pack. TUBES NOT SUPPLIED - USE YOUR OWN TUBES. Cases available - please enquire. You will need a 500mA 12V DC Power Adapter. It is not included, but check out our other listings.
