DIY KIT with boards and electronics parts for Nixie Clock on IN-18 Tubes (without tubes). 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 NCM107 and Tubes board NCT318, for 8 tubes you need additinal one tubes board NCT818. To get clock on 4 tubes You can cut tubes PCB along the line, see photo below. PCB design, schematic, housing and software made by GRA & AFCH.
Set includes an unassembled board(s) - bare PCB(s), electronic parts, MCU (microcontroller unit) ATmega328P flashed with Arduino Uno Bootloader and sketch (Firmware). Kit compatible with Arduino Uno, so it allows you to write your own unique programs on the Arduino platform, the latest sources are always available on. Lot contains bare PCBs and all necessary parts (WITHOUT tubes).
1 pc of Tubes boards: NCT318. 1 pc of Tubes board: NCT818 (for extra pay)! Flashed MCU with Arduino bootloader and NixieClock sketch firmware.Set of ALL needed partselectronical, mechanical components and etc. User manual on vintage-style paper. 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).
If you have ANY questions, PLEASE ASK us. Clock support many kinds of Nixie tubes (4 tubes [hh:mm], 6 tubes [hh:mm:ss] and 8 tubes [HH:MM:SS:uu/Temp]).
Shows 100s and 10s of micro seconds. Date format 6 tubes: [DD:MM:YY] and tubes 8: [DD:MM:YYYY]. Slot Machine Anti poisoning tubes saving function.
Unique RGB LEDs backlight with 16,7 million 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): LED backlight, tubes and sound. You can check firmware version at the end. Unique detailed tube test our soft check each segment on every lamp.
Distinguishable to see segment failure. Special schematic that prevent blue spot effect inside IN-18 tubes. High precision Real Time-Clock chip DS3231SN. Integrated High Voltage Power supply 150 - 220V. 3 PWM channels for RGB LEDs 8 bit per channel = 24bit = 16,7 million 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.Power consumption: 12V, 1000mA (Recommended power source: voltage 12V, current 1-2A). MCU board NCM107 has world smallest size: 100 x 50mm.
Tubes board NCT318 size: 264 x 50mm. Tubes board NCT818 size: 94 x 50mm. Nixie tubes, glass columns and power supply is NOT included! 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 to use this tubes You need appropriate tubes PCB(s).MCU bare PCB Top side.
