Collected on the new indicators in-14 (with storage). Gas discharge indicators (GRI) can not be compared with modern led soulless indicators.
This watch is not only a unique decorative item. It is an accurate watch based on a specialized modern circuit. Modern electronic system includes stability and accuracy of time. Accuracy 1 / 2 min per year!
Built-in battery to maintain accurate time when the main power supply is interrupted, 3 volt battery (type CR2032). When disconnected from the network retains the accuracy of the course for six months.The name Nixie comes from the abbreviation NIX 1 - Numerical Indicator eXperimental 1 (experimental digital indicator, development 1). The name was assigned to the entire line of such indicators and became a household name. In particular, the Soviet indicators IN-14 in foreign catalogs are recorded as IN-14 Nixie. From the early 1950s to the 1970s, indicators built on the gas discharge principle were dominant in technology. Later they were replaced by vacuum-luminescent, liquid crystal displays and LED indicators and have become quite rare today.
Currently, most gas discharge indicators are no longer being produced. Some researchers believe that about 10 years before the invention of the Nixie tube type indicator, a similar design device called the Inditron was developed. The authors of this invention made a mistake by not using a separate anode at all. In order to illuminate one or another cathode digit in such an indicator, it was required, as in a conventional gas-discharge indicator, to supply a negative potential.But the positive potential was applied to the next figure - it became the anode for a while. It is clear that it is quite difficult to control such an indicator, and the absence of a mesh anode that does not allow metal particles sprayed from the cathodes to the front wall of the balloon led to its rapid turbidity. The Inditron was forgotten, and the gas discharge indicator soon had to be reinvented. Survived unusual devices quite a bit. If desired, not only a clock, but also a calendar can be performed on gas discharge indicators. In recent years, the popularity of discharge indicators has increased due to their unusual antique look. Unlike LCDs, they emit soft neon orange or purple light. To UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
