Infrared Temperature Meter

     This is a factory calibrated infrared temperature meter that I have adapted for use with Arcadia. The meter used was the Extech 42520, which will show the average surface temperature of what it is pointed at, with a 9.53 degree cone (6:1 ratio, i.e., it will measure a 1' area at a distance of 6'). The meter is set up to measure between 0 and 115 degrees fahrenheit, with resolution to 375 millidegrees fahrenheit. When used with Arcadia, it is set up in the corner of a room, pointing towards the center of a locked down room, so any readable temperature anomalies will be apparent to the system.
