STOCK DIGITAL DISPLAYS
Numitrons, Panaplex, Dekatrons,
VFDs and LCDs

go right to the catalog! Skip the INTRO, Go RIGHT to the CATALOG of STOCK TUBES!
* These are the various Displays and Display Parts 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 tested 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.

*There is a packing charge for large or heavy equipment, see the FAQ for details.

*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.

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. Those are normally scrapped or may get offered as-is in the HOT DEALS section, or here in a bulk lot with the condition clearly identified. 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!

Just Got A Large Factory Boxed Shipment!


Factory NEW, Fully Tested Miniature 7-segment numeric displays with decimal point, very popular avionics display device.

These have a 16 pin DIP package, with a flat glass lens. Still in the factory foam tray, perfect parts, work great. Every one has been individually tested, and is guaranteed good! We rarely see these, and new ones are almost unheard of. These are rated for 50,000 hours at 5VDC. We get endless inquiries for these, but it took some good luck to find a source to get some for your repairs. These are the miniature displays used in the Collins Microline Avionics units (VHF251, etc.)

Can be driven from conventional 7447 LED drivers, will display any color with filtering, great for clocks, no HV required, run from 3-5VDC, all have been fully tested.

I have never seen this package style before for Numitrons, it looks like a 5092 style Nixie, but it's a Numitron. Full general factory data is HERE on our site. Note that the common is moved to pin 1 on this style.

Valvo E1T

E1T / 6370
Valvo E1T / 6370 miniature CRT beam counting tube

ValvoOne of many technologies that predates Nixies, these tiny CRT-like decade counter tubes toggle the position of a brightly lit blue/green rectangle from one digit to the next with a serial pulse input. They were used in some early lab counters, and are visually very attractive when lit. As I recall, their top speed is about 10Khz.They are very old stock, dated 1970, so they are strictly as-is, no returns. All look good, getters intact, but after 37 years, I am just not so sure they still work correctly, even though they came to us as good used tubes, still operational, but we cannot test these here. They use a 12 pin B12E Duodecal socket, we have a couple left. Full factory data sheet HERE in PDF format, includes full operating circuits! The tubes are marked E1T, the E1T number is the one most people are familiar with, 6370 is the industrial number. I do not see any easy way these can be used in a clock, as they have no intermediate pulse take off, only a full decade carry output. Still pretty cool. You can see more data on these counter tubes, and how they look illuminated at Akes tube site.

EEV LCD Avionics Display

Fascinating display sub-assemblies, with 4 Alpha characters, and 4 Numeric (with polarity) characters in 2 display windows.
These high contrast large character displays have heaters for low temp operation, and backlighting, which appears to be an EL panel, although marked +/- on the board; it goes directly to the mating connector.

CLICK HERE to see one of the 3 display controller chips. We have tried to get data on this assembly, but no luck, so these are for the braver experimenter out there. The mating connector is non-standard, but a 0.1 inch pitch header will plug into it. Beautifully made precision assembly, all are newly overhauled spares.

Lit display at 5VDC Factory NEW (old stock), Fully Tested Miniature 7-segment numeric displays with RH decimal point, popular avionics display device.

These have a 13 pin ceramic/epoxy DIP package, 0.472 inch digit, with a flat glass lens. Every one has been individually tested, and is guaranteed good! We rarely see these, and new ones are almost unheard of. These are rated for 100,000 hours at 5VDC, with 4500fL brightness (15mA/segment). We get endless inquiries for this style displays but rarely see any now. We have 12 dual marked FDB-5V15 and FFD-11C, and 6 marked only FFD-11C. All work the same, the dual marked parts have a speckled seal around the front display glass, the single marked parts have a smooth dark gray seal. NO, these are NOT pin compatible with the 3015F, but are roughly the same size externally.

NewNew ETELCO
New, boxed Ericsson Telephones Limited GR10A late generation register/indicator displays with keyed 12 pin (duodecal) bases, made in the UK. Like a Pixie tube, an illuminated neon dot illuminates in a circle to display the count, each dot is adressable directly, not counted and shifted as in a Dekatron, these use an external counter/decoder. Great for clocks, counters, all kinds of displays. These have the flat faces and shorter glass, and run on MUCH lower voltage, as low as 129V, making them much easier to drive, and much easier to interface. New boxed condition, all have good gas. Basically a Nixie tube that lights up 10 dots instead of 10 digits.

Reflector IV-16
7-Segment Numitron Displays


New From the Reflector factory in Russia, these are new, high quality Numitron (incandescent filament) 7-segment displays. Operation requires 3.15-4.5V typical per filament segment, at 17-22mA. Easily driven by 7447 type drivers (with an added 1N4002 diode or two in the common VCC return of the display to drop the required voltage). Flying leads require no socket, very easy to prototype for clocks and other projects. Life will be increased by reducing voltage.
