1  Projects / ArduiNIX / how to test nixies? on: November 30, 2011, 07:57:13 PM
I just received nixies purchased on ebay. NOS IN-19 made in the cold-war era in the CCCP.

I am still planing out the arduinix...

I do have an antique (tube) radio, I also have some CCFL driver board somewhere, stolen from what used to be a scanner.

Can I tap into there and do an early test (before giving feedback) without destroying the tubes?


Any hints welcomed; I'd like to do early tests prior to giving ebay feedback...

Thanks!!
2  Projects / ArduiNIX / (in-14/in-19)x6 board? on: November 25, 2011, 08:59:48 PM
I assume it is impossible to use in-17 boards with in-14 and/or in-19 tubes... right?

Is there any existing (preferably cheap) boards for 6 nixies the size of in-14 with no separations?


That's the kind of board that can save a wiring headeach, and I don't like headeach...
3  Projects / ArduiNIX / Arduinix with IN-19 nixies - or: anyone does anything else than clocks? on: November 23, 2011, 09:24:28 AM
I was quite happy to see the nov 16th post on the main news on Arduinix.com; I have been looking for a little while about the in-19B and in-19V.
I am very new to nixies, seeing another form of nixies in-use just like I want to do is awesome!

I have in-14s and in-19s (B and V) in order; once I have them I'll start looking at controlling them. At this point, I assume the best and easiest way to do so is via ArduiNix - this thing is awesome Cheesy

Anyone use nixies for other things than clocks?
