Electronics designer Marcin Saj with over 15 years expertise within the electronics trade has taken to Kickstarter this month to launch his new versatile nixie clock. Primarily based on the Arduino platform and outfitted with Arduino IoT Cloud expertise, voice management and help for Amazon Alexa the nixie clock additionally options interchangeable nixie tube sockets supporting dozens of various nixie tubes permitting you to customise your clock to your actual liking.
ONE Nixie tube clock options and specs
- You do not want to vary this system code if you’re altering nixie tubes or tube sockets, even when they’re multi-segment tubes comparable to B7971, B8971. The clock has a auto-detection characteristic and selects the suitable sub-programs to manage detected tubes by itself.
- The guts of the clock is Arduino Nano / Each / 33 IoT
- 26 interchangeable nixie tube sockets obtainable
- Possibility to connect with the Arduino IoT Cloud
- Management choice from a smartphone app (iOS and Android) or an online browser
- A number of devoted tutorials obtainable on easy methods to study and use Arduino IoT Cloud with ONE Nixie Clock
- 27 Arduino instance program codes – able to add
- Voice management choice by way of Alexa assistant
- Time synchronization choice by way of WiFi
- Simple to assemble
- All SMD (surface-mount) parts are alredy soldered, solely THT “thru-hole” parts required soldering
- Help offered throughout meeting and start-up of the clock
- Clock has rgb led backlight
- Correct real-time clock for timekeeping
- The clock requires an exterior customary 12V 1.5A energy provide (energy provide isn’t included)
Backer early fowl pledges at the moment are obtainable for the novel venture from roughly $90 or £67 (relying on present change charges).
“With 26 interchangeable nixie tube sockets, this distinctive machine lets you join most present nixie tubes. The clock relies on the Arduino Nano, you possibly can join it to the Arduino IoT Cloud, you possibly can management the clock from the smartphone app and even voice management by way of the Alexa assistant. All options are non-compulsory and absolutely customizable. The clock shows the time digit by digit – first the hours then the minutes – then the entire cycle is repeated. Utilizing fade in/out impact and completely different tube backlight colours for hours and completely different for minutes, time studying is obvious and easy.”
If the ONE crowd funding marketing campaign efficiently raises its required pledge aim and the venture progresses easily, worldwide transport is predicted to happen someday round March 2022. To study extra concerning the ONE IoT voice managed Nixie clock venture play the promotional video under.
“The clock consists of a number of interconnected modules. Inside the primary module (defend) is a RTC module for correct timekeeping, a nixie tube energy provide module, and an Arduino Nano / Each / 33 IoT board. A nixie socket is related to the primary module, a devoted nixie tube is related to the socket. The clock is suitable with 26 nixie sockets that help over 100 completely different tubes. The time is displayed in rotation, beginning with hours then minutes. For simpler studying of the time the seconds have been disabled. You can even set completely different colour of backlight for hours and completely different for minutes.”
