DIY Geiger counter Nixie clock @ medwaymakers.com: Continuing my love of vintage and interesting items, I came across a non-working DP-66 Polish Geiger counter from 1971, which I set out to re-purpose as a Nixie tube clock.
Sjaak has been working on nixie clock project this holiday: Finally try to finish my nixie clock.. it was due in september :) Nixies are working :D
ezflyr shared us his Nixie clock in the project log forum: For anyone that’s interested, here is a picture of my Nixie Clock prototype! I had the hardwood base made out of Maple by a local cabinet shop for $30, and the Acrylic cover was sourced from a company that specializes in display cases for about $15. […]
Looking for something cooler than the typical nixie project? How about a nixie project done entirely in free form, no PCB style. Matseng designed this nixie clock around a single IN-1 nixie tube. It periodically reads out the time, digit by digit. It’s a clock made of a single IN-1 Nixie tube controlled by a […]
In the second article about his Nixie tube clock Luca shows how to drive Nixie tubes with a microcontroller. The first article covered the power supply, we covered it here. Nixie tubes are started with a high initial voltage Vigh, around 150-180volts. Once ignited they work at a maintaining voltage Vm, and consume a average […]
