Product Change Notification in the New Version:
1.Add the GPS time sync function via 3.5mm plug;(GPS receiver is no
2.By using 3pcs HV5812 chips instead of the transistors for the static driving;
3.Optimized the clock functions,removed the global brightness,CDS function and the dot eff,merged one fade eff,add [SNOOZE] key; Installed a CR1220 battery socket instead of old RTC battery solution,cr1220 battery is easy to get in the worldwild,etc.
In order to drive the NIXIE tube, some internal equipment are under the High Voltage (up to ~180V DC), please do not use this clock outside or in any wet conditions, please do not touch any part inside the clock when power supply is turned on. Always keep it away from kids.
Tube Name: IN-14(Made in the U.S.S.R.)
Tube Diameter: 18mm;
Tube Height: 55mm (approx including glass nipple);
Digit Height: 17mm;
Digit Width: 10mm;
Clock Supply: 5V DC via USB;
Max Current: ~650mA;
Clock Size: 198mm(L)*56mm(W)*17mm(H)(~68mm(H)with IN-14 tubes installed);
PCB Size: 186mm*45mm;
PCB Color: Black;
The clock works with any standard USB supply, please use high-quality adapter or the clock may not work!
1).5V USB powered, easy to be used. Can connect to your computer's USB plugs directly (* For some old computers you may need to use the USB Cable that Have Two USB Connectors at the end.).
2).High efficiency HV circuit, you get almost no heat in 24*7 working condition;
3).All SMT components, very thin PCB, only 8mm(max) high with the Top &
Bottom components; Static driving, No Flashing, High Brightness;
4).Support 12H or 24H display modes. Leading zero blanking is programmable.
5).Display date in all format: YY.MM.DD or DD.MM.YY or MM.DD.YY or even MM.YY.DD; Can display week info too.
6).Support a lot of different Effects: Normal/ Fading/ Cross Fading/Flash /Loop /Random Loop/ Scroll + Mix1/mix2 for displaying time(* Effects may will be changed in the future).
7).High accuracy RTC inside, DTCXO (temperature compensated crystal oscillator) version, High Stability, Highly accurate. It has ±1.9ppm (Equivalent to ±4.94s seconds of month deviation) under 0ºC~+40ºC. Usually you don't need to set the time for over a year.
8).Simple setting by using 3 buttons only and supports IR remote control (optional). Also has a new SNOOZE button.
9).Three alarms with weekends ON/OFF support can be controlled individually.
10).Three programmable Auto Power ON/OFF mode, can turn ON/OFF NIXIE tubes in any time you want. This function can save tubes life.
11).CR1220 battery socket on-board for the RTC power which keeps RTC running during power outages. (*Prepare the CR1220 battery by yourself.)
13).Tri-colored RGB LED mounted under the each NIXIE tube. These LED(s) can display pre-defined auto color change effects.
14).Store user settings in non-volatile memory.
15).Beautiful CAD designed acrylic case made using a laser cutter makes the clock look beautiful. You can assemble/disassemble the case by using only 4 screws on the bottom of the case. The case also has 4 bumpers as feet on the bottom of the case in order to stop to prevent case's damage.
16).Can install Temperature Sensor(optional) ;Can install wireless module(optional) for receiving the outside info, like the wireless temperature sensor's data and the GPS time sync data, etc.
