Title: IN-16 Tubes
Post by: RJTPMP on March 24, 2014, 10:39:26 AM
Has anyone tried using the IN-16 tubes? I'm working on mine now, but my first setup doesn't seem to work.  I think I just have the voltage set too low. I plan on getting back to it at some point this week if all goes well.

I'm using IN-16 tubes for my seconds, and IN-8-2 tubes for hours and minutes.  I didn't have any trouble with the IN-16's other than their weird pinout with the 7 and 2 reversed.  My voltage is set to 170, and I used a 6.8K resistor for the anodes.

What voltage do you have it set to? What power supply are you using?  Make sure it's at least 650 milliamps or greater, one amp would be good.
