Introducing another unique design from Electronico Designs…

The Copperhead 18!

I thought the Ice Tube Clock needed a new facelift. Introducing the Copperhead 18 Clock made with a retro Russian display tube!

• It has all the features of the original Ice tube Clock but it is floating above a solid oak base suspended with copper! I wanted to give the design a unique look that blends technology with some of the past. I love Mission Oak furniture and this design captures my fondness for it. This clock would look great in an office setting or just about anywhere in your home.
• Using a Russian IV-18 9-digit, vacuum fluorescent display (VFD)
• Cool glowing blue tube with 8 digits and alarm on/off dot
• Adjustable brightness
• Alarm with volume adjust
• Precision watch crystal keeps time with under 20ppm (0.002%) error (< 2 seconds a day) - it’s not an atomic clock but it will wake you up in time each morning
• Battery backup will let the clock keep the time for up to 2 weeks without power
• Selectable 12h or 24h display
• Displays day and date
• 10 minute snooze
• Integrated boost converter so it can run off of standard DC wall adapters, works in any country regardless of mains power. DC wall adapter included for North American mains.
• Great for desk or night table use, the clock measures 3.9" x 8.5" x 3.3" (9.9cm x 21.6cm x 8.4cm)
• Completely open source hardware and software.
• Tested and ready to use. Operating instructions included.
