Burroughs 7153  
Written by Accutron on 2017-03-21  

The Burroughs 7153 is a fairly large end-view Nixie tube with a hemispherical envelope and a 20mm digit height. While the 7153 is a standard variant of this tube, Burroughs also manufactured the B6033 long life and B6091 long life wide angle variants. Unlike most other Burroughs Nixie tubes produced during the same period, which have a 170V maximum ionization voltage, the 7153 is rated at 250V.
