Remark: The shown tubes are not part of this offer!

You can use other LEDs instead of the included one, 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 assembling instructions of the socket here and the technical data of the tubes as pdf file (6 MB).

Remarks:
  • all dimensions in mm
  • The drawing shows the standard alignment for IN-8 tubes, at which the tube front (pin 6) shows an angle of 30° to the mounting holes. You also can align the tube to you own requirements, of course

The tube contacts also will fit for many other Nixie tubes. E.g.: Z566M, Z5660M, Z568M, Z5680M, IN-18 and many more.
