新款IV-11荧光电子管时钟 | New IV-11 VFD Tube Clock

5年前,我发布了第一款IV-11荧光电子管时钟作品(原帖链接),记得在当时,国内很少有人知道有IV-11荧光电子管的存在,由于IV-11比当时国产YS18-3荧光电子管尺寸上要大不少,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。在这5年间,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(IV-11时钟世界分布图)。
Five years ago, I released my first IV-11 VFD Clock works (link of original post), few Chinese people know about IV-11 VFD tubes at that time, because the size of IV-11 is bigger than YS18-3 (Chinese VFD tubes), and I designed a hardwood base with bright black plates, so it become more and more popular after released. In 2015 during Chinese Premier Li Keqiang visiting Chaihuo Maker Space, he praised this work and has been reported in the tv news. In the past five years, this IV-11 VFD tube clock sells well in Europe, North America, South America, Australia (my IV-11 clock world distribution map).

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,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。
At the same time, IV-11 VFD tube clock is not just a finished product, I also prepared a full set of DIY kit for DIYer, and particularly worth mentioning is all components of the clock kit are DIP and THT parts, no any SMD components, which means it’s very easy to assembly, DIYer don’t need a very professional soldering skills, don’t need very special tools to complete it, not only enjoy DIY fun during the assemblying process, but also to learn a lot of things about electronics, and finally you will get a very classical digital clock, which is why it became popular for DIYer.

在这段时间里,我也收到了很多来自不同国家、不同领域朋友的邮件,除了分享他们的成就感以外,我也汇总了一些他们的意见和建议,这也为我推出今天的新版本而提供了动力。
这里我也先从头简述一下VFD显示技术及IV-11荧光电子管的特点,再简单的介绍一下新款IV-11荧光电子管时钟,最后再详细介绍新版本与上一代作品的不同之处。
During past few years, I received a lot of emails from different countries and different field, I summed up some of their comments and suggestions beside share their sense of accomplishment, which also provide me power for new version.
Here I will start with a brief introduction of VFD display technology and IV-11 VFD tube characteristics, and then initroduce the new IV-11 VFD tube clock, finally I will detailed the differents of new version and previous version.
