Specification & recommendation

  • It's fully assembled working BIG 6 digits IN-18 Russian Nixie tube Clock, giving you chance to concentrate your efforts on the case design!
    Please send me your complete Clock picture, as I am going to create picture gallery on my WEB page.
  • Clock works from 12 to 15V DC, but 12V supply is recommended choice.
  • Power consumption:
    3.36W (280mA@12V) from wall plug power supply (all digits to display)
    2.3mW (0.75mA@3V) from backup battery ( 3V CR2032).
  • To keep power consumption at low level, do not connect load <100KOhm to the external alarm contact.
  • Internal buzzer generates simple one tone and pause sound in Alarm1 or Alarm2 events. It will last for 1 minute, but could be shut off by pressing the button.
  • External alarm contacts set logical "1" in the alarm event and gives you extra feature allowing to connect quality sound melody generator or any external modules via appropriate converter or power control circuit (not included in this sale)
  • Frequency Test Mode can be activated to easily check and adjust clock frequency. In this mode Clock does not display or keep time and date, for 3 seconds it displays 200000, which means 200KHz, than display switches off and frequency check signal is activated on the dedicated output pin. Use it to check it, if you have calibrated precision frequency meter or use this signal for your calibration purposes.
  • Blue spot on number "1" warning:There is a chance you can get blue spotson number "1" in your IN-18 tubes.
    There is nothing wrong with your tubes either there is nothing wrong with our clock. Simly speaking, it is some kind of "incompatibility" problem on combination of your tubes andour clock's high voltage driver chips (K155ID1).
    The only solutions are - to get tubes without dots or to buy/get another clock, which does not use K155ID1 or similar chips or try to swap tubes on their places to get minimal influence.
    Forour IN-18 clocks we sell on our web site weselect good qualitytubes without blue spots and usually about 80% tubes works OK withthis clock.
