New Product - The Akafugu Nixie Clock
Now available in our store: The Akafugu Nixie Clock!
The Akafugu Nixie Clock is a fun to build stylish clock kit that uses old-fashioned neon Nixie tubes. It comes as a kit complete with three PCBs, all neccesary components, four IN-12 Nixie tubes and smoke black acrylic enclosure.
|Comes with adjustable RGB backlighting!|
|With beautifully styled PCB decorations on front and back plates|
|Front and back plates are part of the enclosure for a unique "modern meets retro" look. The side plates are laser cut acrylic in semi-transparent smoke black, allowing you to get a glimpse of the clocks inner workings.|
|Unique and simple control scheme: Everything is set using a single rotary encoder with button (and alarm on/off switch on right side). Turn the rotary encoder to set RGB backlighting mode. Hold the button down to cycle between setting alarm, time and custom settings.|
|Comes in a kit of three separate PCBs: Easy to solder Trough-the-hole (PTH) parts only. The small SMT parts come pre-assembled.|
|Russian top-view IN-12 Nixie tubes.|
|Powered from a single 9V (or 12V) AC adapter. The 180V high voltage required to run the nixie tubes is generated from the 9V DC supply.|
|Uses an Atmega328P microcontroller with Arduino bootloader and firmware preloaded. The firmware is written in Arduino, and is fully open source. Anyone can reprogram their Nixie clock using a simplenull and a USB mini-b cable. (Cable not included. FTDI adapter is available as an extra option in the shop. Other brands of FTDI adapter are also usable)|
