Scythe Kama Thermo

A Closer Look

A Closer Look

Kama Thermo bundle Kama Thermo rear

The Scythe Kama Thermo bundle is minimal; simply including a 4-pin molex connector and the Kama Thermo with built in temperature probe. On the rear of the unit you can see where the connector fits in for running the unit from a dedicated power source (PSU). The battery compartment comes with a pre-loaded battery (type - LR44).

Removing the Kama Thermo from it's case there isn't a lot to see; simply a printed circuit board, battery housing and LCD screen with backlight. The temperature probe features a hint of sleeving...nice touch! The Kama Thermo also has little plastic lugs on the side to enable a snug fit, if you want to mod it into one of your drive bay covers.

The blue backlight only works when using the 4-pin molex, but it is extremely vibrant.

Now that we've had a look at the Kama Thermo in detail, let's see how well it performs.

Used to love goofing around with these things, pushing them to see if the ranges were true. (physics >.<)

I`d like to see it`s sensor in a block of ice, with mercury thermo, to see if it`ll hold up.

.. and also see what happens when it goes past it`s ceiling into 100 deg water, also alongside a mercury thermo.

Seems to me tho, the price is below the similar looking diy kits u can get from Maplins. Plus of course, u don`t have to make it.Quote
