The IN-14 indicator lamps are practically neonbulbs with a group of cathodes in the form of numbers.
The bulb is filled withlow-pressure neon. Under the influence of a constant voltage, the cathode ofthe lamp emits orange-red light specific for neon filling. Depending on theapplied voltage, one or another cathode shines alternately. Everything is likein an incandescent lamp, only light emits a gas discharge. The service life ofsuch indicators is huge since there is no long and heavy load on one cathode.
For a full glow, a voltage should be not less than 100 V. Time is displayed on six indicator lamps in the HH:MM: SS format, in a 12 or 24-hour format.
