Digivac made them for Daco, EGL and others. The last phone number I have for Digivac is 732-571-2300. That may no longer be good. Steve Collins owned the company, but I believe he sold it and retired, so the company may or may not still be around.

With that said, inexpensive digital instruments, such as the temperature gauge you have, as well as the similar looking digital vacuum gauges Daco and others sold, are not accurate in close proximity to a strong high voltage field. The EMF from the bombarder infiltrates the printed circuit board causing erroneous readouts. A good quality shielded analog meter is the best choice.
