Abstract: A digital thermometer having a probe with a sensing and casing end. The casing end includes a generally transversely extending pivot boss having a first and second end. A sensor is positioned within the sensing end of the probe for sensing the temperature proximate the sensing end and for generating an electrical signal proportionate to the sensed temperature. A casing supports the casing end of the probe and includes supports for receiving the first and second ends of the pivot boss such that the pivot boss can pivot with respect to the casing. Circuitry is positioned within the casing and is electrically connected to the sensor for receiving the electrical signal and converting the electrical signal to a digital temperature signal. A display on the casing receives the digital temperature signal and displays the sensed temperature such that the casing can pivot with respect to the probe for allowing the digital display to be viewed from a plurality of perspectives.
