Nixie Tube

Create beautiful things with cold-war era tech.

power rating 3.3V
power rating 2.54MM

Use this super cool looking nixie tube in all kinds of awesome projects. Use it as a countdown timer for the next SpaceX launch or a cool clock. This Nixie tube is the IN-14 variant. This means the size is about the same as a human thumb and has bottom mounted connectors.

Practical Information:

To wire up the nixie tube to an Arduino you'll need a K155ID1 nixie tube driver. And to top it up, you'll also need a high voltage (170V) DC power supply to supply the firing voltage.  


To wire everything up, supply 12V to the power supply and solder a 10K resistor to the anode. Then connect the negative wire to the resistor(anode), and the positive wire to the cathode that corresponds with the number you want to fire up.
