Novo-Rex 1 from Rex Instrumentbau, Erlangen one of the earlier selenium exposure meters. Remarkable is the name on the meter, Novo-Rix 1 (Rix) while the manual and the box are mentioning the name Novo-Rex 1. I saw another meter for sale on the internet with the same spelling (i instead of e). The image on the manual clearly shows the name Novo-rex and the same for the box of the meter.
