We thoght about a digital unit was well but reading a digital unit in total darkness is impossible and under red light itīs difficult.
We feel that this classic style is the best option for darkroom use and it looks better.
Thermometers can be built in different accuracys. The accuracy given is guaranteed. The accuracy is also a function of percentage of accuracy and range. We manufacture this thermometer in a small target oriented range (10 to 50°C = 40° range). This allows for a higher accuracy and readability within the range which makes it perfect for darkroom usage, making it e.g. useless for cooking. The other way around a cooking themometer wouldnīt do a great job in the darkroom as it is to unprecise apart from the chicken and cow images printed on the scale :-)
