A bit of info I dug up about the two versions of the Winburn meter, the Avenger and the Night Hawk, both of which used the 180 scale. This first quote (and pics below) are about the Avenger model. The differences between it and the Nighthawk (from what they are saying below) is that the Avenger needed a 9V battery to power it because it didn't draw it's power from the Sovereign, but that the Nighthawk version drew it's power from the Sovereign and only needed a 9V if you wanted to use the night light. The other differences were that the Avenger had the adjustment pot inside it to calibrate to 180 on a dime or quarter while the Nighthawk version had an external pot from what I gather from these posts...

This 180 meter has no external adjustment.There is a on and off power switch on the side of the meter.Also requires one nine volt battery for power.The mounting bracket is nice and gives the user a great view of the ID screen. After the back plate is removed a small screw driver is needed to adjust the pot inside the meter.

I have a Winburn, it really works good. Once you adjust it to 180, it never needs readjustment.
But it has a problem, on hot or sunny days the screen goes black and you can't read it.

Mondak,my Winburn Nighthawk had the same problem in summer on a bright sunny day I would have to search in shade so I could see the meter.I could search for 5 to 10 minutes before I lost the screen and then in the shade that amount of time to recover.Would a screen cover work?So your saying the Avenger holds its adjustment and the external knob is no big deal.Thanks Ron

A screen cover would help for the sunlight problem, but not the ambient temperature.
When I got mine it read about 3 points lower than it should have. I took the cover off
and adjusted it correctly. I have'nt had to readjust it since and that was about
2 years ago.

Joe,Winburn manufactured these 180 meters and like the Sunray meters these are difficult to find.I used the Winburn Nighthawk for a couple of seasons which didn't require a battery had an outside adjustment knob and even a night light.Again after looking for another 180 meter the Sunray was my first choice,but found the Avenger and it works great.Thanks Ron

The below pics are from Ron's first quote above of the Avenger version, which had an internal POT adjustment and required a 9V to run, while the Nighthawk version only needed a 9V if you wanted to use the new added backlight and instead drew it's regular meter power from the Sovereign. The Nighthawk version also had an external adjustment pot instead of the internal one on the Avenger from all I gather above.
