While not recommended by IBM (they won't accept the units for service
because they are officially outside their operating environment) I have used
3196 terminals in this environment.  Select a unit, set it up in a warm area
and leave it turned on for an hour, then bring it inside the freezer.  Don't
turn it off.  Ours ran for over 2 years before needing to be replaced.  Buy
two so you have a backup handy.
