1  Projects / ArduiNIX / In-8-2 Animated Decimals on: November 08, 2017, 12:35:48 PM
Hey guys, I'm somewhat new to nixies and I wanted some advice.

I'm driving (4) IN-8-2 nixies to display [hours] and [minutes] for a clock.  I'm using the V3 Driver Shield and the IN-17x6 V3 Tube Board.  This means I have the upper/lower seconds tubes are empty since i'm only driving 4 tubes total.

The IN-8-2 nixie is the type that has a decimal place. What I would like to do, is be able to animate the decimals.

Example: All 4 decimals light up in a cascading effect during one second -> each decimal lights up for 1/4 second, starting left to right, one after another.

I know the decimal needs to be limited with a 100k Ohm resistor due to its size.  I've thought about tying the decimals into one of the upper/lower [seconds] tube sockets that are open on my multiplexing board.  I'm not sure I'm thinking about this correctly though.


Any insights appreciated, thanks!
