Our Benefits:

 

  • All our Nixie Tubes Clocks are using HV513WG chips,
    it provides higher brightness in multiplexing mode in comparison with HV5812 chip and greater reliability compared to legacy K155ID1
  • We offer flexible Tubes Boards platform, that support many Nixie Tubes
    (out Tubes Boards designed for IN-4, IN-8, IN-8-2, IN-12, IN-14, IN-16, IN-17, IN-18 and Z573, Z5660M, ZM1042, Z568M Nixie Tubes)
  • It is easy to build a beautiful Nixie Tubes Clock with our Boards, we also offer Acrylic, Wooden and Stone Cases for our Clocks
  • Fast uploading pf the Firmware via USB to the Control Board
  • All the latest version of the Firmwares to all our Nixie Clocks are always available on our GitHub channel
  • No need for additional drivers, we are using only genuine USB-to-serial converters (FTDI),
    drivers for them are pre-installed in all popular OSes: Windows, MacOS, Linux
  • It is easy to modify the Nixie Clock’s Firmware functions for your tasks due to the open Arduino platform
  • We use High Quality PCBs and Components, also we use Japanese aluminum capacitors only for our Boards (Nichicon, Panasonic)
  • Tubes Board is easy to modify by cutting if you want to build 4 Tubes Clock [HH:MM] from 6 Tubes Clock
  • Our Nixie Boards use Power On Self-Test (POST): LED backlight flashing,Tubes flashing and Start up Tune. Our Boards use,
    Firmware version can be seen at the end of the POST test
  • Our Tubes Boards use Unique detailed Tube test – our soft test checks each Tubes segment on every Tube so it distinguishable to see segments failures
  • We provide competent technical support for all our products

 

 

Software Features:

  • Clock support many kinds of Nixie tubes (6 tubes [hh:mm:ss] format and 4 tubes [hh:mm]).
  • 12/24 hour format.
  • Date format: DD:MM:YY
  • Slote Machine (Ani poisoning)
  • Unique RGB LEDs backlight with 16,7 millions colors.
  • Very easy to switch LEDS off/on.
  • As alarm sound clock uses standard RTTTL (Nokia format) melodies, so You can easy change it. (included songs: mission impossible, we wish you).
  • Easy updating firmware via USB using Arduino IDE.
  • Software based on Arduino sketch, so MCU has Arduino bootloader within.
  • Power On Self Test (POST): LEDs test, tubes test, input voltage test, sound test.

Hardware Features:

  • Integrated High Voltage Power supply 150 – 220V.
  • ICSP connector for flashing Arduino Bootloader to blank MCU.
  • 3 PWM channels for RGB LEDs 8 bit per channel = 24bit = 16,7 millions colors. It can be disabled in the menu (see manual).
  • Test points for testing, adjust and control low and high voltage circuits.
  • Pads for internal buttons and terminals for external buttons.
  • Pads for internal USB connector and terminals for external USB.
  • Terminals for internal and external power connector.
  • Terminals for external and internal buzzer.
  • 2 dots column with separate controls upper and lower dots.
  • Power consumption: 11-14V, 360mA (Recommended power source: voltage 12V, current 1-2A).
  • MCU board NCM109 has world smallest size: 100mmx50mm.
  • Tubes board NCT318 size: 264mmx50mm.
  • Tubes board NCT818 size: 94mmx50mm.

*The MCU board support a variety of tubes, such: ZM1042, Z522M, Z566M, Z5220M, ZM1040, Z5660M, B566M, LC-631, IN-14, IN-18, IN-12, IV-8, IN-7, IN-1, IN-2, IN-4, IN-8, IN-15, IN-16, IN-17 in case if you build your own Tube boards.

 

Project “Divergence Meter” has modular system, so you can build clock with 4 or 6 or 8 tubes.
For clock with 6 tubes you need one MCU board NCM109 and Tubes board NCT318, for 8 tubes you need additinal one tubes board

 

  • 1pc of MCU board: NCM109* (If You want build your own CUSTOM nixie tubes clock, You may buy only MCU PCB).
  • 1pc of Tubes board: NCT318.
  • 1pc of Tubes board: NCT818* (if You choose Board for 8 tubes in selector).

 

*The MCU board support a variety of tubes, such: ZM1042, Z522M, Z566M, Z5220M, ZM1040, Z5660M, B566M, LC-631, IN-14, IN-18, IN-12, IN-8, IN-7, IN-1, IN-2, IN-4, IN-8, IN-15, IN-16, IN-17. To use this tubes You need appropriate tubes PCB(s).
