Peak cathode current, decimal point 0.8 - 1.5 mA

Average cathode current, segments a-g 0.6 - 0.9 mA

Average cathode current, decimal point 0.15 - 0.2 mA

Typical condition = 220 VDC supply, 100 uS pulse width, 1/16 duty

@typical condition, cathode series resistor, segments a-g 4.0 k ohms

@typical condition, cathode series resistor, decimal point 15.0 k ohms

Other Notes

They're apparently intended for multiplex/pulsed operation only

Indications are for individual cathode resistors, not common anode

Anode supply 190-220 VDC

Pulse width from 100 to 500 uS

Duty cycle 1/20 to 1/10

Pre-bias voltage (operating to non-operating cathodes) 60 to 120 V

Temperature -10 to +60 deg. C operating, -10 to +70 deg. C storage

Viewing angle 140 deg.

(handwritten- wavelength neon orange 5900-6100 angstroms)

(handwritten- life = 25k - 35k Hrs.)
