Nixie Clock Version 1
The clock was experimental until I picked up some experience with the circuitry. I experimented with the idea of building an alternating display using two B-5560 nixie tubes but ended up using 4 nixies instead. The original idea was to display the hours, then minutes, then the cycle starts again. The nixie tubes used in this clock are Burroughs...
Nixie Clock Version 2
This is the new and improved nixie clock using one of the smallest nixies in the world, the Russian IN-17 nixies. The clock circuit is based on revisions of the version 1 nixie clock that were used in my Single Meter Clock. The logic circuits of the clock is basically identical to the Single Meter Clock except it has SLOW and FAST set instead of h
This is one of the most neat projects to build using a PIC. The design of the clock is mainly a clone of Bob Blick `s propeller clock, along with a few modifications of mine. I used a PIC16F84A microcontroller. I`d have to admit that the programming end of things was more difficult than building the clock itself in the beginning. I originally buil
This oscilloscope clock project uses a PIC 16F876 and a DAC to generate X and Y signals to draw a clock on the oscilloscope. The original circuit and software was designed by OZ2CPU, which can be found here:. The clock circuit was slightly modified to use a different DAC from Texas Instruments. The 60Hz signal was obtained from the AC side of a

digital clock pic microcontroller ds1307
A Digital Clock can be made easily by using PIC Microcontroller, DS1307 and a 16G—2 LCD. I have already posted about Interfacing DS1307 RTC with PIC Microcontroller.

This circuit allows you to superimpose a title and/or the time and sate on an incoming video signal - very useful when editing video tapes. It`s also a good introduction to video signals and processing.

A clock using numeric neon lamps, also known as nixies. These display devices were common around the sixties and seventies and their use fell off after the invention of LED displays. Nowadays nixies have become valuable oldies and are hard to get even tough they are still being manufactured in very small quantities. This project was made...

Clock keeps on ticking
I designed and built this Ring Counter Clock in 1970. The base is a 12" diameter/2" thick block of walnut from a hollowed-out gun stock blank. The back side of the base has been hollowed out to hold the circuit board. I chucked it up in a large lath and turned it inside and out. Then I drilled 120 holes for the lights and five holes in the center
1999 mercury sable: wiring diagram illumination a 3.0L vin U. I
The wiring diagram for the clock and radio screen illumination for a 1999 mercury sable with a 3. 0L vin U. I have searched for hours on alldata and MichellOnDemand and have found absolutely nothing. Please help! I don`t know if it matters, but the vehicle is a mercury sable GS, not LS. I appologize for not specifying that earlier.
Clocks have been mentioned in the preceding section with regard to their action with FFs. You will recall that this circuit is a timing signal generated by the equipment to control operations. This control feature is demonstrated in both the D and J-K FFs. Remember that a clocks output had to be in a certain condition for the FFs to perform their
Experimental Pendulum Clock
Using this design, you can construct an electromagnetically impulsed pendulum clock with a 1-second beat. On the prototype, the pendulum rod is 115cm long with a bob adjusted to make it beat every second. It is suspended on a short piece of mainspring from a watch, which is attached to a vertical backboard with a 6mm screw. The rod extends some 15
Isolated 1-Hz Clock
One of the author`s physics projects required an accurate 1-Hz (seconds) clock signal. Unfortunately, precision 10-MHz quartz crystals are expensive, while another problem was found in the inability of most common or garden 40xx CMOS logic chips to work at such a high frequency. However, a typical CMOS counter like the 4017 has such a high input r
One second Audible Clock Circuit Schematic
This accurate one-pulse-per-second clock is made with a few common parts and driven from a 50 or 60 Hertz mains supply but with no direct connection to it. A beep or metronome-like click and/or a visible flash, will beat the one-second time and can be useful in many applications in which some sort of time-delay counting in seconds is desirable. Th
Using a VCXO (Voltage-Controlled Crystal Oscillator) as a Clock (CLK) Generator
The term VCXO stands for Voltage Control Crystal Oscillator. The frequency of such an oscillator can be adjusted by a small amount through changing the control voltage. VCXO CLK generators have been used in various applications, such as digital T..
Nixie Clock Project
Before Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and Liquid Crystal Displays (LCDs) the electronic industry used cold-cathode tubes for displaying numbers, symbols and even characters. Even though they are called "tubes" they differ from "radio tubes" by having no heater wire to heat the cathode - and therefore run much colder. They do have a glass envelope bu
quartz clock timebase
Many electronic projects call for a timebase generator, accurate to a second or so. One way of producing this is with a microcontroller, quartz crystal and some software. But a far cheaper and simpler approach is to recycle an old analogue quartz clock. After investigating a number of clocks the author discovered that they all use the same drive...

Ultrasonic distance finder circuit
The circuit described here uses ultrasonic oscillations and operates based on the propagation velocity of these oscillations in the air. Thus, we can easily determine the distance of two points if the time within which the wave travels this distance is measured. There are three main categories of distance measurement methods in use: a) By...
Simple Metal detector circuit with CD4030
Sometimes the precious metals are hidden too deep and are not detected except with complicated devices. In many cases, however, small pieces of precious metal buried near the surface can be detected by relatively simple means. Everyone is very attractive to find something potentially valuable, hidden a few centimeters below the soil. So many...
Fully automatic watering circuit for flower pots
Many times for various reasons we forget or can not water the plants that we have in our homes. And many humidity sensors units just notify us with a beeping sound or with a flashing light, that the pot needs watering. But what if we are away from home? This circuit comes as a solution to this problem. Depending on humidity of the pot at...

Sub-Harmonic Bass Converter for Electric Guitars
The sub-harmonic bass generator is a sound producing unit for guitars. The sound it produces looks very much like that of the bass guitar. The octave generator is sometimes quite unusual since it does not produce any of the usual ways of coloring the sound, such as filtering or distortion. Instead, a frequency division system produces outputs...
Echo Depth Sounding Sonar for Boats
In the past the sounding (sea bottom measurement) was done with the "bullet", that is, with a heavy lead object that the seamen plucked into the sea hung from a calibrated rope. As soon as the "bullet" reached the bottom, the depth appeared directly from the calibration of the rope. This arrangement still exists in some yachts. The big...

Analogue Sound Preasure dB-Meter Circuit
The best human ear can capture sounds from 20Hz to 20KHz. These limits are known to be the broadest that can exist. Normally the normal limits range from 100Hz to about 13KHz and depend on the age and health of the individual. We for our measurements and to have a good accuracy we will get the limits of 20Hz to 20KHz. A sound to be heard does...
