  Agents of Change Toolbox
Blow-molded equipment case, Platt 407.
Note: Prices are estimated based on current list prices, actual equipment costs may vary. Toolkit recipients are responsible for replacing any lost or damaged equipment. Developed from experiences using the larger, Vital Signs Project $25,000 equipment toolkit , the AoC toolkit has been restructured into smaller, more affordable toolkits designed around popular interest areas.
Additional Equipment:
Agents of Change recommends the following tools in addition to the tools found in the basic loaner kit.
  Li-Cor Light Meter
The LI-250A Light Meter is a single-channel readout device for use with any of LI-COR's terrestrial light sensors.
  Li-Cor Photometric Sensor
The LI-210SA Photometric Sensor is designed to measure illumination in terms of lux (1 footcandle=10.764 lux). This is radiation as the human eye sees it.
  Li-Cor Pyranometer Sensor
Instrument for measuring solar radiation received from a whole hemisphere. It is suitable for measuring global sun plus sky radiation.
  Ex-Tech Light Meter
Digital light meter measures illuminance in FC or Lux, built-in PC serial interface, external sensor.
  Minolta Luminance Meter
Measures the luminance of light sources or reflective surfaces.
  Fluke Multimeter
Measures frequency (motor speed) & AC current with an optional current clamp accessory.
  CO2 Meter
Measures CO2 (air quality indicator) and Temperature.
  VOC Sensor
Checks indoor ambient air quality, range is 50-100 parts/million.
  Ozone Sensor
Monitors ozone levels, shows the situation by a multicolor graphical display, and alarms when there is a health hazard.
  Blower Door
Tests building airtightness.
