New batch of ENIAC's will go into production early 2024 - please message me if interested in reserving one.
Representing the latest in Nixie clock technology, ENIAC is a subtle blend of the old and the new. Externally the clock is styled on the early pioneering electronic computers of the 1950's but internally uses the latest in microcontrollers and clock design.
ENIAC features 6 hand made RZ568M Nixie tubes from Dalibor Farny and Swiss designed electronics from Ian Sparkes working as a collaboration with myself. Built to exacting standards, all metal construction with every component either CNC or Laser cut. One of the main advances in Nixie Clock design with ENIAC is that there is a small OLED screen hidden on the front panel. Prior to this, the Nixie tubes were used to read off parameters and settings against a list of written instructions. You now can see everything in plain english and make easy adjustments straight await without having to step through lots of numeric menus on the tubes.
For Accuracy ENIAC compares 3 clock sources - GPS, then NTP over the www and an internal Real Time Clock, so it will always show the correct time. All of ENIAC's settings and parameters are also mirrored over a WiFi connecion so you can control it from a web browser.
- 6 Digit RZ568M Nixie tube clock, with additional 2 X GN-4 Slave display and 6 BlinkenLight Status indicators.
- Direct Drive tube electronics, addressable LED backlighting with many modes of operation.
- Easy setup via inegral OLED screen and rotary encoder for basic clock options. Further options then available via Web interface.
- GPS Accuracy as standard with additional time aquisition methods.
- All metal construction, precison made components all hand assembled in the UK.
- Measures 525mm x 200mm x 200mm ( 21" x 8" x 8" ) and weighs 5.6Kg (13 lbs)
We suggest you download the ENIAC Manual as this will give you all the capabilities and specifications of the clock in a comprehensive and easy to read guide.
The ENIAC clocks will not be made in large numbers, each one is hand built, wired and tested. Many thanks to the National Museum of Computing for allowing use of their facility for the photographs.
