STOCK NIXIE TUBES
go right to the catalog! Skip the INTRO, Go RIGHT to the CATALOG of STOCK TUBES!
* These are the various Nixie Tubes we have on hand from Burroughs, National (Wang), Raytheon, NEC, Amperex, Philips, Numitrons from RCA, and even Panaplex neon displays from Beckman/Sperry. To save you some frantic email, YES! we DO have sockets in stock at this time, but keep in mind many of these are solderable types if you are experimenting or making clocks, and of course, for repairs and retrofits, the socket is already there.

We have some new (NOS) and some pulls available. All Nixies have good or excellent element visibility, and none have blackened fronts. We are very picky about what we buy and sell, you can be sure these are worth having.
Lots of new NIXIE data just added for your reference. Please note that over-current makes the tubes blacken, and seriously shortens tube life, limit average current to 2.5-3mA for most tubes.

* NAVIGATION: To make your life easier, and help you find exactly what you want, we have broken the on-line equipment catalogs into smaller sections. Just CLICK on the item you are looking for at the left, to see the matching catalog. Large graphical catalogs are a bit SLOW, so please give them a bit of time to load. The top header of each catalog is largely the same, so don't think you are stuck in one place!


You can order anything here just by picking up the phone, and calling (250) 769-1834 during normal office hours, 8:30AM to 4:30PM PST, or FAX to (250) 769-4106. OR, Email your order to Susan CLICKHERE.

Shipping*SHIPPING: Preferred and Alternate Methods as of June 4, 2013, CLICK for FULL DETAILS ON OUR FAQ Page. Rates are now changing rapidy, often with little notice to us, so all the data has been transferred to the FAQ page for speedy updating.

* E-Mail Susan if you want a quote for shipping to other destinations, or for something heavy. Sorry, we can't safely send most individual small parts in a regular letter envelope, they get destroyed by the automated handling equipment. Sometimes we can ship very rugged parts in a small padded envelope by letter post. Ask Susan.

*If we have your valid data on file, you can just click on the ORDER email link to place an order and indicate your approval to bill, and we will do the rest. We keep your active information for ONE YEAR for your convenience.

*If this is the first time you have dealt with us, you can phone +1 (250) 769-1834 or FAX +1 (250) 769-4106 to supply the billing info, or send it by the email link, as you prefer. We accept VISA/MC, international money order, Paypal (to Susan@Okanagan.net), and bank wire transfer. Please note that there are transaction fees with Paypal and wire transfer payments, the wire transfer fee is frankly horrifying, $50.

We accept VISA/MC or international money order

* CONDITION: To answer your questions, YES, we completely inspect all new surplus and used parts, and do not offer any we feel are substandard. These tubes are both new and used (as marked in individual listings), and all are tested prior to shipment to insure the best possible quality. If there are any marks or detracting features, we clearly state them in the listing.

* The CATALOG will appear below shortly!
Don't forget these illustrated sections take a few seconds to load, but they are worth the wait!

Russian K155ID1 Driver IC

K155ID1 Nixie Driver
74141 Equivalent Pinout

(also generally replaces 7441/A parts, but additionally supports blanking)


K155ID1 / 74141 Nixie Tube Drivers
NewNewRussian Nixie Drivers
These plastic DIP ICs are the Russian equivalent of the popular (but now unavailable) TTL 74141 driver, which supports display blanking for numbers above 9, which is very useful in many circuits with multiplexing and where blanking is desired for cosmetic reasons. It can also replace earlier non-blanking 7441 drivers with no circuit changes in most cases (above 9, the 7441 alternates between 8 & 2 and 9 & 3 illuminated togther, the 7441A begins again with 0-5 at BCD 10-15). These are excellent quality, late production parts, all in new factory trays. This part is sometimes described by other numbers, as the cyrillic characters can also be read K155UD1, etc. These parts translate 4 line BCD inputs to 10 open collector (0-9) HV cathode driver outputs, very convenient for clock designs. We use this driver in our own clock kits.

Positive logic, ABCD high inputs (low to high order) drive the outputs LOW to the equivalent value, 0-9. For example ABCD=1000=Display 1, ABCD=1010=Display 5, etc. The maximum tube supply voltage should not exceed +200V, +170VDC is optimal for most tubes.

NEW! Z560M GERMAN TUBES
These red-filtered tubes are a physically larger envelope than the very common Burroughs 5092/8421, but are pin and function compatible. These are all NEW tubes, excellent condition!

Standard size digit top view tubes, they have a glass filler at the bottom (requires a standard 13 pin circular socket with a center hole, we can provide new PC mating sockets, pre-drilled for $4 each). These are classic tubes from Germany, like new condition pulls, all 100% tested. These test very well, great looking digits, and very bright, with an integral red contrast filter (can be removed by soaking in hot water), same tube as Z5600M, but with added red filter. The lit images are at +170VDC and a 22K series resistor, its rated typical current is 2mA. The pins are tinned, appear to be solderable for the very brave.
The digit height is 5/8 inch, width is 1 1/8 inch.

This tube is described as High Contrast NL-809 in the datasheet, and has less internal reflections, and crisper digits than the basic tubes. The DP is excellent clocks, as it allows tight, uniform spacing, and the DP can serve as the colon separators. High quality US made tubes, all from the same batch.

Large quantity just available, these fit the new 13 pin PC mounting sockets we have, note that they require a small depression in the center to clear the tube seal closure.

The red coating comes off easily when soaked in hot water, rubbed or hit with any solvent, so be careful when cleaning the tubes!
CLICK for Data Sheet! These nixies fit the same 13 pin circular socket as the more common 8421/5092A, but the pinout is different, see the data sheet to the left for details. The common anode is the same, but pin assignments are offset by one digit relative to the 5092A. The lit digits are +175VDC with 39K in series they are very bight, but require little energy.

Flying leads mate with virtually any board layout! No sockets required. Hard tube to locate.
Great vertical view tubes, 13mm digits, with flying leads (approx. 1.5 inches), NO SOCKET REQUIRED! Easily routed to any existing PC Board layout for other tubes!

Great for clocks and other homebrew projects. Made by Telefunken, the boxes SAY ZM1080, BUT the tubes have NO red coating or markings, which is really a ZM1082. Drive requirements are reduced from the values below if PREBIAS (PR) pin is grounded via a 10 Megohm resistor. This partially pre-ionizes the gas and makes ignition much easier.

Z5600M GERMAN TUBES
These clear tubes are a physically larger envelope than the very common Burroughs 5092/8421, but are pin and function compatible.

Standard size digit horizontal view tubes, they have a glass filler at the bottom (requires a standard 13 pin circular socket with a center hole, we can provide new PC mating sockets, pre-drilled for $4 each). These are classic tubes from Germany, like new condition pulls, all 100% tested. These test very well, great looking digits, and very bright, same tube as Z560M, but no red filter. The lit images are at +170VDC and a 22K series resistor, its rated typical current is 2mA. The pins are tinned, appear to be solderable for the very brave.
The digit height is 5/8 inch, width is 1 1/8 inch.

These tubes have very attractive, true form characters, fantastic appearance for clocks!. The hexagonal front anode has a very nice unique, high-tech appearance, same as the Mullard tubes.

* BURROUGHS
Jumbo top view
,


great for large display clocks, etc. Same 13 pin socket/base and pin-out as the standard 5031/5092/8421, but significantly larger digits. The lit digit size is 0.8", inside 1.2" glass, this is the biggest top view numerical display we have. Burroughs called it a SUPER Nixie.

Excellent condition, old production inventory stock from the 70's we just bought. These are very lightly used, but every tube is fully tested and inspected, all guaranteed to work properly! Most have some or all of the printing rubbed off due to so many years of handling, but are the tubes indicated, so we have priced these as used tubes. We even have sockets for them now! A great chance to get some large tubes for that special clock you have been planning, and these still need only +170VDC. These are wide angle, long life tubes, and classic American quality.
