|Is That Your Edge?
|Written by AnubisTTP on 2012-01-28
We recently obtained a rather unusual device from Brian Stuckey, operator of the TubeclockDB Nixie clock database: a General Radio IND-1803 Numerik Indicator. Manufactured by a company not known for their display division, the IND-1803 is an edge lit display with a number of rather unique properties. Other new additions to the website include a Burroughs B9012 pixie tube in the Gas Discharge Displays section and an unusual surface mount LED display in the Solid State Displays section.
We have also veered a bit away from the world of tubes and electronics to make an entry for a mechanical device; an Eaton two movement time lock, a traditional device from a rather insular class of products. Despite a lack of any electronics, this device is a forest of moving parts and can be found in our Clocks Timers & Counters section.
