Lets you control 2x IN-9 Nixie bargraphs with a microcontrollerDesigned by Neon Things in United Kingdom
This kit is no longer offered with tubes. Since originally launching, tube prices have increased by a factor of 5. They are still readily available online but it doesn't make sense for me to stock...Read More…
I had the idea for this project after building myself a Nixie bargraph clock which looked fantastic and eye-catching. Instead of using conventional nixie tubes, which use numbers to display the time, the time is indicated by the height of the neon glow. But, this isn't just limited to displaying the time, anything can be indicated with these tubes, temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure, proximity... anything!
It is a simple kit that includes a PCB and through-hole components that can be quickly and easily assembled.
To control the tubes it's as simple as plugging in a 12v power supply (not included) and sending two PWM signals to the board. By adjusting the PWM duty cycle you can control the tubes neon height.
This simplicity means it can be controlled by any board you choose: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Nucleo... You could even ditch the digital and use an analogue signal to control the tubes!
This kit was successfully Kickstarted, with over 500 kits being shipped!
