Nixie Clock QTC+ With Z5700M Tubes


I ordered this clock as one of the Winter Deals offered by PV Electronics with brushed aluminium case and power supply and after having a brief chat with Pete using the PV Electronics live chat window. Pete was very helpful and knowledgeable and answered all my questions so I ordered it the same day. It arrived 48 hours later and was well packed.

The assembly instructions were easily found on the website and I downloaded them and printed them off. When I checked the components off the parts list there were a couple of spare components as described in the instructions. I checked the resistor values using a multimeter as recommended and all of the other components were clearly marked as you would expect.

I assembled the clock by following the instructions and everything went together brilliantly. It took me a couple of 2-3 hour sessions over the weekend to assemble the clock and I am really pleased with the result. I did add an extra piece of larger diameter clear heat shrink insulation to reinforced the neon bulb leads so they don't bend over too easily when cleaning the tubes and bulbs.

The clock behaved exactly as the instruction said it would and all of the functions tested out OK.

I highly recommend this product.
