The clock on the discharge indicatorIN-12B

Распиновка и внешний вид ИН-12

Previously, these indicators are widely used for displaying digital information in measuring instruments, etc., but now the urgency of this decision is questionable, however, studied an appropriate topic of our forum and ran according to the links in it, was made a willful decision to pile on the basis of the monkwatches ... What, in your spare time from the basic lessons, and it was slowly realized.

Some sort of structural scheme of the device shown in 
the picture:


Структурная схема
In the diagram, the red arrows show the data bus, and blue - power supply units.

Hours can be powered from several independent sources, which are isolated by using Schottky diodeswith a low drop-D1-D6. As an input to the first power supply is installed MOLEX connector that allows you to use a computer power supply, the second input is designed as a conventional coaxial DC / DCjack, and the third source is the AC / DC converter circuit is courtesy of my colleague (unfortunately, it does not registered on the forum) and is presented 


Схема AC/DC
The scheme is simple, but there are nuances: a diode VD1 - fast (if you use the chip IR2153D it is not required), suppressor VD4 and VD15 are necessary to protect the rectifier diodes, if they are selected without a large supply of voltage. Transformer Tp2 made three put together ferrite rings size 20h12h6 2000NN: primary winding contains 70 turns of 0.3mm, low-power secondary winding (for supply IR2153) - 2 sections of 7 turns of the same wire (two wires dangle, then the beginning of one wire is connected with the end of the other and get the average point - as usual), a powerful secondary winding - 2 Section 7 turns of three wires braid 0.5mm (6 wires shakes, then divide in half, etc. - as well as with low-power). Do not forget the interlayer insulation!

Radiators for transistors for power to 15-17 watts is required, though the board provides a place for them.Resistor R1 represents three series-connected resistor to 100k each.

Input filter: TP1 and capacitors C1 and C2 - is taken as is from the ATX power supply, inductor L3 is wound on the ring of the output inductor of the same power supply (simply wrapped wire MGTF in a single layer - much climbed, but can be up and ready again to take .. .)

For definiteness, assume that after the diode junction voltage is 12V.

For the digital supply voltage must be 5V clock, which is obtained from the 12V with a pulsed DC / DC converter, which was built based on the chip TL2575-05 from Texas Instr.:


DC/DC 12 в 5
To supply the gas-discharge indicators require a high voltage source of the order of 200V needed forignition and maintain a stable level in the indicator. Upconverter 12 -> 200V is made on a chip MAX1771:


DC/DC 12 в 200

In the high-voltage part of the circuit elements should be used to withstand appropriate voltage. Divider formed by resistors R2, R3 and variable resistor sets the output voltage, which can be adjusted within certain limits. In my case, the output voltage is 190V, which is sufficient for the indicators. Inverter power is sufficient for simultaneous operation of all six indicators.

I advise you to be careful when debugging: 200V - high voltage, and even isolation from the mains is present, and the power converter is not great, he was pounding on the paws quite well ...

Structurally, these DC / DC converters to save space and for a number of other considerations presented in the form of individual vertical circuit boards and soldered to the motherboard clock:

DC/DC преобразователи

On the left - a 5-volt converter to the right - increases.
The decoder is used to convert the data stream it receives from the MC, to a form suitable for display on the display. The scheme of the decoder along with the display shown in the figure:

To display data on the display are loaded in four series-connected 74NS595 register. In the last register in the chain store data corresponding to the decimal point of the display, its output is directly controlled high-voltage switches Q1-Q6, which, in turn, ignite or extinguish the appropriate decimal point.

Younger 4 digits of the other three registers contain the binary code that corresponds to the odd character cells display (1, 3, 5), and senior nibbles - even (2, 4, 6). This code is supplied to the inputs of the binary-decimal decoder with a high yield K155ID1 that control directly to the indicators. In the plate circuit of each indicator is set current-limiting resistor. Since the current is much smaller than the current point of any of the digits of the indicator in the chain of reservoirs "point" of transistors installed additional resistors. Thus, because the register is only updated by the team manager of MK and changes occur only on certain lines of data, we have actually a static display, although the update of the display is 20 times per second.

The block itself consists of the microcontroller MC, real-time clock M41T80M6 from STMicroelectronics, USB FT232BM module for communication with a PC drive level RS-232 interface chip MAX232 for the same purpose, and control buttons. 
The scheme of all this happiness, as usual, is shown in Fig.


Блок МК
USB module to the FT232BM is a separate fee, vertically soldered into the main. Module is assembled on the template except for the missing chip EEPROM:


Модуль FT232BM
At the same time can only run one of the COM interfaces or USB, with preference given to USB, because switching is realized by means of the relay, energized from the connector USB: sticking with cable relay will spread and go to the controller data from the module FT232.

Generally, the interface converter USB <-> RS232 can be found in this article, and tell you a secret that in the final version of the clock is a converter on the TUSB3410, but it has been said about the priorities of interfaces is true for him ..

Structurally, the building designed in hours on the computer CD-ROM and consist, as already noted, several of the boards. The whole area of ​​the body is the main circuit board that is mounted inside the housing to regular seats, the rest of the "native" card CD-ROM.
