  • Dekatron tubes, register tubes, Pixie tubes: 4251, 6167, 7978, 7979, 8035, 8262, 8353, 8433, 8453, CD55, CK7978, CT4251, GC-90, Z504S, Z505S, Z550M, Z562M, Z562S, Z564S, Z565M, ZM1050, ZM1060, ZM1070

The socket provides the opportunity to apply the included LEDs under the tube to generate the very impressive floor lighting effect.

with blue floor lighting

Example of use! Remark: The Nixie clock case and tubes are not part of this offer!
(You will find the tubes
at my other offers!)

You can use other LEDs instead of the included blue ones, of course.
You can use the tube contacts in your own PCB layout, too.
The socket has a black coated surface. This is very expedient for the case mounting at a Nixie clock, because the black surface looks neutral.

You'll find the complete assembly instructions of the socket here and the technical data of the tubes as pdf file (3.5 MB).

Here you see the completely assembled tube socket:

You can use one, two, three or four LEDs. For a balanced glow in combination with side view Nixie tubes I recommend 3 LEDs (see picture). For a balanced glow in combination with end view tubes I recommend 2 LEDs, or 4 if you want very high LED intensity. The following 4 pictures show the socket in all 4 variants (computer animation):

not recommended)

2 LEDs (recommended for front view Nixie tubes – standard intensity)

3 LEDs
(recommended for side view Nixie tubes – standard intensity)

4 LEDs (very high intensity only for front view tubes – do not use for side view tubes!)

Here you see the assembled tube socket with Z5660M and SZ3-1 Nixie tube mounted:
Remark: The shown tubes are not part of this offer!

Here you see the drawing of the assembled socket:

  • Remarks:
  • all dimensions in mm
  • The drawing shows the standard alignment for side view tubes, at which the tube front (pin 8) shows an angle of 38.57° to the mounting holes. Front view tubes and other tubes have to be aligned different, of course.
  • The drawing shows the standard 2 LED positions.
  • Example of use: Nixie clock with Z5660M tubes mounted in a case
    At the following pictures you see a Nixie clock mounted in a gorgeous stainless steel case as example. Exactly the same principle as described in the assembly instructions (here). There’s no limit for your fantasy for the case, of course. Have fun building it!
