We have just launched a new product which might be of interest to LF shooters, who do hand tank processing, it can be found here:
As well as at BH, Freestyle in the US and Labo-Argentique in Europe (UK customers should likely order from the US for most efficient delivery).

Below is the general description of the Tank Top Timer, though more importantly for the LF community, this can be used with a Paterson PTP116+mod54, Jobo 2520 and other similar tank/reel combos. It should also be usable for the Stearman press tanks, though we have not tested this.

The CatLABS “Tank Top Timer” is a convenient small-sized temperature-compensating timer designed to be fitted to any developing tank cap.

It functions as a stopwatch, starting when the button is pressed and counting
up until the button is pressed again.

The rate at which the timer runs is dependent on the measured temperature, and in this way provides accurate compensation for changes in developer temperature.

The timer can also be used as an accurate digital tank thermometer, measuring to a resolution of 0.1 C.
