The vacuum fluorescent display is a special vacuum tube developed in the 60s. They were popular for their futuristic teal glow with remarkable, distinctive brightness. The ИB-6 seven segment display from the soviet union was built in the late 80's for massive desk calculators. Six of these tubes together create the clock display of Fluorescence.
The new Fluorescence comes in two minimalistic redesigns Fluorescence Classic and Fluorescence Dainty. They share the exact same inner values making them equally beautiful Together with a transparent acrylic enclosure they show what is essential: color and passion
Be a dreamer. Light up the world around you with perfect colors by the lights of Fluorescence. Six little lamps, LEDs, makes your favorite clock shine in different colors. Besides choosing from 99.488.250 different color possibilities, the new Fluorescence also illuminates in a pleasant, uniform spectrum warm white.
The true highlight made available using the Fluorescence 3 Open Source Platform. Besides magical light patterns that harmonize with the acrylic glass and the tubes Fluorescence comes with Moments of Bliss: Seven dynamic patterns inspired by nature. Alive, authentic and wild.
Control the Fluorescence with whatever device(1) you want. Fluorescence App, a powerful companion was rebuilt for the new Fluorescence using open source, cross platform developer Qt So you can talk to Fluorescence, more. Whether it's over USB Type C or Bluetooth.
ILLUMINATING AHEAD Each and every tube is statically driven by individual microchips, delivering intense, uncompromising and flicker free brightness even in bright day light.
SIGN OF THE TIMES Of course, the clock of Fluorescence by The VFD Collective is ridiculously accurate. Powered by a real time clock with a temperature compensated crystal oscillator, it makes adjusting time completely unnecessary(2).
EXTREMELY ENERGY EFFICIENT Using state of the art power management circuits from Texas Instruments®, Fluorescence by The VFD Collective delivers high power requirements of the tubes with maximum efficiency of at least 90%, at any time
LAY DOWN YOU’RE SLOW When you are ready for the night, Fluorescence can enter one of the five, or an individually designed sleep profile. The clock fades into night shift, and only uses a quarter of the energy. Of course, brightness of both the clock tube display and LED illumination can be adjusted individually any time
SAFE AND SOUND Fluorescence is powered by an intelligent USB Type C power interface. It’s the safest way for both power delivery and data transfer. Each power rail is guarded by a precise fuse that shuts down securely when it detects an issue
STRONG ALLIES Fluorescence uses the most advanced firmware ever built to work with VFD clocks, Fluorescence 3. Together with Fluorescence App, it forms a powerful ecosystem. The best thing about it? It’s open source!
(1) Fluorescence App has been officially compiled and tested for macOS Catalina 10.15.7 and Windows 10, build 19041.572 Fluorescence supports communication over USB Type C (internally: USB 2.0 VCP). Bluetooth is supported, when the optional Bluetooth upgrade is installed, and when the host computer supports Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
(2) With an accuracy of max. ±2 ppm specified and guaranteed in the DS3231 RTC datasheet, the time error of OpenVFD will be below ±63 seconds per year. Ideal calculation based on full supply voltage provided by CR2032 lithium battery. DS3231 is leap year compensated until year 2100. DST needs to be set manually.
