Re: occasional blanking

I think I found the fault I had with the clock. The voltage measured at the output of the USB (power module) was equal to 14V70 and sometimes dropped to 14V30, especially in strong heat. when it fell to 14V30, the base module software detected an undervoltage: red flash, and off the displays. Then t...

Re: occasional blanking

Hello, During the heat we had in France the clock continued to show 00 <00. Now, the display is accompanied by a red flash of the central led of the base. I looked at the code and in case of overheating problem we should have a green flash. In addition, I controlled the temperature inside the base a...

Re: occasional blanking

Hello, since few days I have exactly the same behaviour: Every 20seconds or so, the nixies goes off then 00<00 appears for 0,5s and then time is displayed again. The clock is not moving and the overcurrent led (red) under the base is not flashing (it is flashing only when placing the clock over the ...

Re: Alarm lockup firmware bug

Hello Tony, you are right, I propose to open a new topic dedicated to firmware update. I think that one of the missing bank select was the cause of the occasionnal (1 time per month or so) crash of the clock I faced when using the GPS unit. But until now, I am not able to prove it (the crash was so ...

Re: Levitation base assembly...discussion

Thank you for this clear explanaition. I proceed to the modification and it seems to work very well (it is only 10mn since I powered it again, but I already saw that there is no more touch sensor self-trigerred when placing the floating unit.) In addition to that ,placing a wire in place of R13 is b...

Re: Levitation base assembly...discussion

Hello Tony, I have exactly the same behaviour as Lee described: after several hours, sometimes, the touch sensor triggered by itself... When you suggested to connect a link across R13 (shorting it out), do you mean that it will solve the touch sensor issue? If I understand well, R13 is for the overc...

Re: Sharing experience wit the time flies

Hello Lee, sorry for my late answer (i was out with no access to the forum). I hope everything is OK for you and that only the car suffered for the crash. For me too, it was difficult to get the clock aligned with the base: I had rotate the magnet fraction per fraction until finding the right positi...
