Here's how the device looks with the front plate removed. Under each Nixie tube is an orange LED to highlight which channel is active.

Switching from Celsius to Fahrenheit is done with a small jumper, it's located on the left of the green PCB in the upper right corner. Right under the green PCB is a jumper for the alarm, if the jumper is connected the device will sound an alarm when any voltage drops below 7V of when one of the temperature sensors exceeds 70°C (150°F).
