Carbon Monoxide Alarm uses an electrochemical Carbon Monoxide sensor. Carbon Monoxide Alarm sets off when it senses a dangerous level of CO. It is NOT designed to detect smoke, fire or any other gases and does not react on temperature.
The alarm is equipped with 9V batteries. Under normal conditions, when there is no Carbon Monoxide detected, the red light flashes after every 30 to 40 seconds. When the alarm is giving low battery fault chirps (1 beep every 30 to 40 seconds), then the battery should be replaced as soon as possible. CO alarms should be placed on a wall about 0,5 – 1,5 m above the floor.
As of 01.01.2018 carbon monoxide detectors are mandatory in Estonia. The sensor must be installed in all living spaces that are heated by gas or in which the gas unit, for example a water heater, is connected to the chimney.
Do not install in areas where the temperature is lower than 5°C or hotter than 40°C.
Carbon Monoxide Alarm complies with European Union Standard EN50291.
