我的最爱「辉光管」| My most Favorite Nixie Tube

Nixie

在每个Nixie Fans看来,辉光管是最具有古典气息的显示器件,她柔美的艺术效果只有亲眼所见才能震撼领略。辉光管「NIXIE」技术于上世纪50年代被发明,在60-80年代广泛应用,是当时唯一能显示数字的电子器件。她能显示数字和符号,且手写体阿拉伯数字字形优美,前后错落有致,从稍侧面看去,层次感强;最迷人的是那种温暖的橘红色的光芒,尤其是在夜晚看去,朦胧之下给人温馨之感。但在不经意间,这些辉光管正在消失殆尽、难觅芳总,令多少爱好者为之兴叹,不过这也恰恰正是她的价值所在,我一直在努力使这些古董艺术品焕发新生,用她们创作颇具穿越感的作品。

From the perspective of each Nixie Fans, Nixie Tube is the most classic display device, introduced in 1955, widely used in the 1960s-1980s, it’s feminine artistic effect can only be shocked to see with your own eyes. It can display numbers and symbols, and the handwritten Arabic numerals have beautiful glyphs, staggered back and forth, and a strong sense of hierarchy from the side; the most charming thing is the warm orange-red light, especially at night, it gives a warm feeling. But inadvertently, these Nixie Tubes are disappearing, and it’s difficult to find, which makes many enthusiasts amazed. I have been working hard to revitalize these qntique artworks and use them to creat works with a sense of transcendence.

古典与现代的融合「荧光管/荧光显示器」

The combination of classical and modern VFD Tube/Displays

VFD

VFD荧光显示技术诞生于上世纪60年代,在80年代得到广泛应用,现如今仍然在很多电子设备上被使用。在她刚刚诞生的时期是被封装在真空的玻璃电子管内,这也就是我们看到的荧光管/VFD Tube。她晶莹剔透,内部高度真空,从外观上看与辉光管的显著不同是顶部有一顶”黑帽子”,这个黑色部分是位于管内玻璃壁上的“消气剂”,它是用来提高电子管真空度的一种物质。点亮后荧光管的颜色呈荧光材料特有的蓝绿色,均匀而明亮,且在阳光下依然清晰可见。大多数荧光管采用了近现代LED的7段位排列,可以通过控制不同段位亮起而显示不同的数字和符号。

Vacuum Fluorescence Display technology is till in a large number of applications today, but it was encapsulated in a vacuum glass tube when it was just invented, which is what we see as a Vacuum Fluorescent/VFD Tube. She is crystal clear and has a high internal vacuum. From the appearance, ti’s significantly different from the Nixie Tube. There’s a ‘black hat’ on the top. This black part is a ‘getter’ on the glass wall inside the tube. After lighting up, the color of the fluorescent tube is a blue-green peculiar to fluorescent materials, uniform and bright, and still clearly visible in sunlight. Moost of VFD tubes use a 7-segment arrangement of modern LEDs, which can display different numbers and symbols by controlling the lighting of different segments.

显示丰富的「LED」| Varied display LED

LED

Light Emitting Diode的中文名叫发光二极管,也就是LED,LED在上个世纪60年代被发明以后,注定成为新一代光源技术具备无限的应用前景。它具有节能、环保、寿命长、造价低的特点,现如今已经成为了取代传统照明方式的技术,同时也在显示器件领域得到广泛的应用。我在创作NIXIE/VFD 作品的同时,也非常喜爱LED点阵显示模块,因为它可以显示各种英文、数字和符号,显示内容丰富且成本低、寿命长,所以我也热衷于采用LED模块进行创作,很多作品也深受大家喜爱。

The LED(Light Emitting Diode) technology was invented in the 1960s, destined to become a new generation of light source technology with unlimited application prospects. It has the characteristics of energy-saving, environmental protection, long life, and low cost. Nowadays, it has become a technology to replace traditional lighting methods, and it’s also widely used in the field of display devices. When I create NIXIE/VFD works, I also like the LED dot matrix display module very much, because it can display a variety of English, numbers, and symbols, the display content is rich, the cost is low, and the life is long. Many works are also loved by customers.

在2012年我创作了第一款IV-11荧光电子管时钟作品,她采用了榉木作为底座主材,全部采用机械加工,尺寸精准、做工精细。上下面板采用激光切割的镜面黑亚克力材质,搭配IV-11荧光电子管尽显古典韵味。记得在当时,国内很少有人知道IV-11荧光电子管的存在,由于IV-11比当时国产的YS18-3荧光电子管尺寸要大不少,而且搭配了实木底座和亮黑色面板,所以一发布便受到了朋友们的喜爱。2015年李总理访问柴火创客空间时还曾赞赏过这件作品,并且曾在电视新闻栏目里进行过报道。截至2017年,这款IV-11荧光电子管时钟畅销美国、俄罗斯、澳大利亚及欧洲大部分国家,累计销售超过2000台。

同时,IV-11荧光电子管时钟它不仅仅是一件完成品,我还为热爱DIY的朋友们准备了全套的DIY套件,并提供详细的装配指导说明,而且最重要的一点是设计这款时钟所使用的所有电子元器件都是直插零件,无任何贴片元件,这也就意味着大大降低了DIY焊接的难度,DIYer不需要有非常专业的焊接功底,也不需要很专业和特殊的工具即可完成,大家在享受DIY乐趣的同时,也能认识所用到的各种零件,学到很多东西,并且最终还能拥有一台极具古典特色的数码时钟,这也是为什么这件作品能够被大家所喜爱的重要原因。

In 2012, I designed the 1st version of the IV-11 VFD clock. It has been popular in the past 5 years all over the world, especially in North America, Europe, Australia, South America, and Asia.

In addition to the fully-assembled version of the IV-11 VFD clock, a DIY kit version of the clock was also made available for DIYer. With all components being through-hole parts, the DIY kit is very easy to assemble, pretty friendly to general DIY fans. A basic soldering station and some patience are the only things needed for the assembling. No professional tools are required. In the process, DIYers can practice their soldering skills and enjoy the fun of making, as well as learn electronics along the way. Once done, they will have a classic clock to love and enjoy. That’s why it has been so popular.

In these years, our buyers have shared their stories, suggestions and comments through email from all around the world. We received a lot of emails from different countries and regions.

Five years passed by. Now it is time for a new toy, the version two of the IV-11 VFD clock.

IV-18 荧光电子管是上世纪80-90年代前苏联的产物,冷战时期曾大量制造并应用于军事设备;冷战结束后,同其他海量的战争遗留物一起,被埋于地下,或被封存于冰冷的仓库角落。与其他种类荧光电子管不同的是,她在一根管内嵌入了8个7段数字,并且每个数字右下角都有小数点。她独特的外形、通透的管身、冷艳的色彩,让她与金属外壳搭配一定是完美的创作。于是,经过一次又一次的设计、修改、打样,历时一年多的创作,Energy Pillar 能量柱由此诞生。

同时,Energy Pillar | IV-18 荧光电子管时钟它不仅仅是一件完成品,我还为热爱DIY的朋友们准备了全套的DIY套件,并提供详细的装配指导说明,大家在享受DIY乐趣的同时,也能学到很多东西,并且最终还能拥有一台极具金属质感的电子数码管时钟。

The Energy Pillar IV-18 VFD Nixie Clock features the authentic Russian IV-18 VFD tubes produced in the 1980s to 1990s. Like our many other designs, the Energy Pillar is encased in quality metal finish and is packed with features including auto-brightness, sleep function, countdown timer & alarm clock functions. The clock comes with an Infrared remote control as well.

All tubes are 100% authentic brand-new unused 1980s – 1990s USSR made IV-18 VFD tubes and they come in Assembled and DIY Soldering Kit version.
