Description:
This item is a New Version IV-11 VFD Tube Clock, a perfect, retro, vintage-inspired, delicate, sense-of-technology desktop glow tube clock.
At the same time, it is not just a finished product, prepared a full set of DIY kit for DIYer, and particularly worth mentioning is all components of the clock kit are DIP and THT parts, no any SMD components, which means it’s very easy to assembly, DIYer don’t need a very professional soldering skills, don’t need very special tools to complete it, not only enjoy DIY fun during the assemblying process, but also to learn a lot of things about electronics, and finally you will get a very classical digital clock, which is why it became popular for DIYer.

The driving method of IV-11 VFD tube is quite simple, not repeat here. But there’re many ways to drive it, it’s worth mentioning that the new version continuation of the previous version of static drive, not dynamic scanning drive, tubes are all no blinking, and will extend the life of VFD tbues, the specific characteristics of the following list:

Specific Characteristics:
1. Gold plated PCB, all curved tracking with tear pads for prevent the pad off.
2. Static drive, non-dynamic scanning, effectively extend the life of tubes, no blinking sense, stable and reliable performance.
3. High efficiency DC-DC step-up/step-down module with low power consumption.
4. Tube driver module is cutoff when press POWER button to poweroff the clock, including anode and filament power, effectively extending the life of VFD tubes.
5. Built-in CR1220 lithium batery, maintain clock time for 3 years.
6. Including 5V USB universal power adapter.
7. CNC machined hard wood base with bright black acrylic plates, highlight the noble character.

The main improvements of new version is add the semiconductor ambient light sensor (not the photosensitive resistor), it can control the digit and backlight brightness according to the ambient brightness, especially in the night the clock will not affect your sleep. In addition, the new version will synchronize the date and time with GPS in realtime, previous version need to manually trigger synchronization or automatically once a week synchronization. For specific features please check the following list:

Specific Features:
Time displayDisplay hour, minutes and seconds (12 or 24 format operational, lead zero On/Off supported).
Date displayDisplay year, month and day (YY-MM-DD/YY-DD-MM/DD-MM-YY/MM-DD-YY date format operational).
Lunar date displayCalculate and display Chinese lunar date accroding to solar calendar.
Day of week displayCalculate and display the day of week.
AlarmTwo alarm clock, can be activate separately.
GPS adjustAutomatic adjust date and time (GPS receiver is optional).
GMT time zone functionsThe clock will calculate the local time based on satellite.
Temperature displayor operational (Temperature sensor is optional).
Switch On/Off automaticallyAuto On/Off time can be set for saving tube life.
Brightness adjust automaticallyAutomatically adjusts brightness level of VFD tubes and LEDs based on ambient lighting.
Transition effectsTen transition effects for the digits, and ten transition speeds can be setup.
Background lightingBackground lighting effects includes eight colors, Fade in-out, On and Off.
IR remote controlIR remote controller operation.
High accurateBuilt-in high precision RTC module, acurate to within 60s per year.
Power off memoryBuilt-in backup lithium battery will maintain clock time, all setting can be saved without power.

Introduction of VFD technology
Vacuum Fluorescent Display technology was inivented in 1950s , In 1959 Philips made the first vacuum fluorescent indicator, and then in 1962 Japanese made the first single VFD digital display component. VFD tecnology is still used in many applications now, but it’s not the appearance of this tube, it become flat and high resolution, because VFD display don’t need backlight, high brightness, unique color, display content can be customized, so it’s widely used in automotive, high-end instrumentation, Hifi devices and intelligent terminal, such as our car audio display, Blu-ray player, desktop multimeter, supermarket cash register, etc. VFD tube has a phosphor coated anode that’s bombarded by electrons emitted from the filament, and now different colors can be choosed during manufacturing. So VFD tube is different with NIXIE tube, nixie tube is filled of some kinds of gas, VFD tube don’t producing heat when it works.


Introduction of IV-11 VFD tube
IV-11 VFD tube was made in USSR 1980s-1990s, about 30 years out of production. The glass body is cylindrical with 22.5mm diameter, side display, 11 fly pins (8 anodes corresponding to 7 segments and 1 decimal point, 1 grid pin, and 2 filament pins), the following picture1 and 2 are the photos of IV-11 tube and the original information content.

Intensity of the glow 250-500 kd/
Viewing angle ≥80°
Filament current 100±10mA
Current of anode-segment ≤0.8mA
Current of the anodes summary 3.5-5mA
Grid current 12-17mA
Filament voltage 1.5±0.15V
Anodes voltage – In static behavior 25-30V
Anodes voltage – In pulsed operation 50-70V
Operating time 5000 hours

The new version and the previous version basically have the same technical specifications, whether it’s the appearance of the size or interface type and operating voltage, etc., please check the following table for technical specifications:
