Envoy IN-12 Operation
The Envoy IN-12 6-digit Nixie Clock operates differently from your traditional button-adjusted nixie clocks, our clock utilizes capacitive buttons which are touch sensitive for settings and we have provided a secondary control with an Infra-Red remote control.
The Envoy IN-12 6-digit Nixie Tube Clock can be manually adjusted using the 3 capacitive buttons on the clock or using the provided infrared remote control. Time is calculated by the built-in RX8025 crystal unit with a ±5×10-6 accuracy.
We have also provided a photo-resistor sensor (LDR) at the back of the clock to automatically track ambient brightness when the night mode is on.
All of our clocks come with adjustable Cathode Poisoning Prevention (CPP) function.
