ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Scout temperature-monitoring system from Fire Facilities Inc. It obtains temperatures and stores data to ensure safe life-five training. The pyrometer gives real-time data of nine heat-monitoring probes. The system's software interfaces with personal computers via a handheld infrared data transfer device. Other features of the system include: touch-sensitive display and controls, advanced data-logging capabilities that can store 72 hours of training data, internal and external alarms and Windows-compatible data software.
