Use your Arduino and build Nixie clock, thermometer and hygrometer. Beautifully made housing and easy to operate.

Project can be found on crowdfunding campaign: https://igg.me/at/nixieshield

Parameters & Components

  • Perfect quality housing (color: black, red, blue), laser-cut and engraved
  • Housing dimensions: 60 x 80 x 158 mm (~2.4" x 3.1" x 6.2")
  • High quality connectors & pin headers (only these components require soldering)
  • Nixie power supply module 170V
  • Extremely accurate RTC module - DS3231
  • Precise and accurate temperature & humidity sensor DHT22
  • Shield requires +12V power supply (Arduino Vin power supply connector)
  • Compatible with Arduino UNO.

What's Inside

Replaceable Nixie Tubes

Three device options are possible:

  • Nixie Clock - 4 x IN-12B Nixie Tubes
  • Fahrenheit - Nixie Thermometer/Hygrometer - 3 x IN-12B + IN-15B Nixie Tubes
  • Cesius - Nixie Thermometer/Hygrometer - 3 x IN-12B + IN-15A Nixie Tubes.

Easy Arduino Coding

Datasheet and examples codes can be found in the project repository. Code is very simple and uses only two Arduino libraries: for real time clock DS3231 and second for temperature and humidity sensor DHT22. Nixie tubes are controlled by HV5812 high voltage drivers by using only 3 arduino pins. You can modify the code according to your own ideas.
