Hello,

if I do the voltage test on my first new soldered ArduiNIX, I get only 14V using a 9V power supply.

I think I've soldered all things at the right places. Are there some more tests I can do to locate the error?

Thanks for help,
Bernd

Sorry to hear that, Bernd! 

Here's what we usually do in a case like this.  If you can get me some more info as to what you've got going on, some good pictures of the front and back, so I can see how you have it soldered, and we'll go from there.

Do not worry though, if all else fails, if you send me your kit, I'll send you a completed, fully functional and tested unit.  Lets try figuring out what's going on with your kit first, though.

Hello Brad,

good news: After re-soldering some points the anode voltage is reaching 183V.
I've connected some digits of one IN-18 tube and it looks really great :-)
