Nixie Tube Desk Clock – $139

Nixie Tube Desk Clock – $139

Release your inner geek! Nixie tubes were considered cold cathode tubes filled with neon gas with a wire mesh anode and a set of very intricate cathodes in the shape each of the numerals to be displayed.  The tubes mount in a unique double set of boards that can be easily integrated into your own enclosure or equipment. Unlike today’s digital displays that run on a few volts, these Nixie tubes have an anode voltage of 180VDC, and the clock should not be displayed turned on without a suitable enclosure! Ouch!
