When it stops rotating, the pointer angle indicates the phase difference between the generator and the grid. I’d rather make just a simple board for connecting the power supply and the tubes together, so that stuff doesn’t go anywhere. In this tutorial, you will learn how to control a nixie tube with an Arduino. Amazon Drive Cloud storage from Amazon. So I added a IC.

There is still room for improvement, especially with k15id1 sensor mounting, but for now, [badjer1] seems pretty happy with the result. When holding the button for longer than one second you come back to the free- running mode.


AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Please post a schematic diagram so we can see how it’s wired. The colons of the clock are created with two INS-1 neon indicators.

See questions and answers. The difficulty here is the amount of wires: And here’s the circuit diagram.

Before you get started, you need to get acquainted with the Nixie tube. Check the different truth- charts!!! This is a “common base circuit”. These chips are 5V logic and transform a 4 bit input to into a given output pin.

This is useful for blanking turning off the nixie tube. Please try again later. I got many hints from the Neonixies Gang that in some cases a defective may leak at the outputs. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs.

The entire assembly mounts inside a tiny nizie jam jar, giving it the effect of being a vacuum tube. Gargoyle manages this Producing: From here – circuit and here – webpage.

How to control a Nixie Tube with Arduino

Great stuff, thanks for the info! As the KID1 stopped being manufactured long ago, and the NOS new old stock will eventually run dry, prices will go even higher. Sounds like a duff chip or it’s not being connected up properly. Same hack time, same hack channel, bringing you the best of Hackaday.


Some driver ICs have high voltage outputs intended for driving thermionic devices such as Nixie tubes or electroluminescent displays.

Finding Nixie tube driver circuits etc. I also have russian types and “unknown” of which I have no idea if they are or Hans 6, 1 20 Fully compatible with well known IC Has overrange blanking. The diagram below from here shows a typical Nixe which is representative enough of your nixi for the purpose.
