Today on “Pimp my Cockpit”, we add a digital thermometer:
It’s actually an Auber Instruments Thermo/Pyro box, popular for temperature sensing in espresso machines. It just so happens to run on 12V DC and is wired into the ignition. The temperature sensor is a miniature Pt100 RTD poking into one of the Ram Air tubes so it’s pretty much accurate as soon as the engine is running and drawing air.
The box sports 2 different brightness modes, memory of high/low temperature, and an alarm for any temperature you might want to set, which is handy for an ice warner.
