This Thermometer is only available as a kit!
The new secret among Nixie enthusiasts, is a Nixie tube thermometer with the slim, beautiful IN-16 tubes.
Fast, secure installation without any adjustment are the features of this kit as well as its modern look.
This new gadget is a two digit thermometer based on IN-16 Russian Nixie tubes. The tubes are lit from underneath with a LED (standard LED colour is blue, but many other colours available!) and there is a neon lamp that acts as a negative sign indicator. The temperature sensor is a Dallas DS18S20 with cables in different lengths. This device supports up to two sensors so you can have the device can report both indoor and outside temperature.
The software has a few neat features too. It has a smart menu system that makes operation easy. The user can adjust the update frequency and error detection settings. Additionally, the device has a built in cathode poisoning prevention mechanism; the device cycles through digits in a simulated slot machine effect to prolong the life of the IN-16s.The elegant "Black Brilliance Case" with its noble high gloss surface reflects the glow of the tubes and bans the viewer in fascination definitely.
Take the chance and buy one of the limited kits!
