Green or Yellow version available

 

 

 

On the top of the pyramid, a large New Old Stock socketed Nixie tube (IN-18 Russian tube) display hours and minutes one after one.

Each number is displayed for about a second with a slight pause between each digit to improve visibility.

This funny non-conventional way of reading hour will captive the attention of every body and provide a nonstop digit moving in the tube.

There is no external switch for setting the clock; magnetic contacts (Reeds) are used in place. Setting the clock is done with a small magnet (strong earth type).

It allows easy setting while avoid people to change the setting when looking and touching the clock.

Placing the magnet at the front top left angle of the pyramid will set hours, top middle front angle for 10's minutes and top front right angle for minutes.

A audible signal (BIP) is emitted when the magnet is well placed for settings.

Also, placing the magnet at middle bottom rear of the pyramid allow to select between 7 colours to bottom light the tube, 3 LEDS (Red, Yellow and Blue) allow 7 colours combinaison. The magnet turn on or off as well as switching between colours each time it is applied.

The pyramid case is professionally made of Ash wood, thickness is about 9mm!. The hand finish is 3 layers special yellow varnish + beeswax finish.

The clock plug directly in 200-240VAC, no external wall adapter is needed (unless you need to operate it from 110 VAC), cord match pyramid color and is about 5 meters long!

The clock accuracy is base on a high quality KDS crystal and then, the main frequency is not used (it works at 50Hz as well as 60hz) When unplug from main, the clock continue running, the display is blanked but the clock will continue to work for a very long time. No battery backup is needed, an internal high capacity condenser (1 Farad) keep the system working.

Tube is driven at about 2/3 of its capability (very bright and longer life).

Logic tube driver is powered from regulated 5 volt.

Clock circuitry driven from separated power to ensure 1 Farad capacitor up to maintain only needed parts to keep clock running when unplug from main.

Clock is about 9.2 cm side (pyramid base), height is about 7,5 cm without the tube (1 Inch = 2.54 cm)
