INTRODUCTION
BASIC SAFETY INFORMATION
Dangers, Warnings, and Cautions alert you to important operating
instructions or to potentially hazardous situations. Pay special
attention to these items.
THIS IS NOT A SMOKE ALARM! This CO Alarm is designed to detect
carbon monoxide from ANY source of combustion. It is NOT designed
to detect smoke, fire, or any other gas.
This CO Alarm is approved for use in single-family residences.
It is NOT designed for marine or RV use.
This CO Alarm will only indicate the presence of carbon monoxide gas
at the sensor. Carbon monoxide gas may be present in other areas.
The Silence Feature is for your convenience only and will not correct
a CO problem. Always check your home for a potential problem after
any alarm. Failure to do so can result in injury or death.
This CO Alarm should receive continuous 120VAC, 60 Hz, pure sine
wave electrical power. (The battery is meant for emergency back-up
only). Do not use in an extension cord or outlet controlled by a dim-
mer or switch. In order for the emergency battery back-up to work,
a working (fresh) battery must be properly installed.
NEVER ignore your Carbon Monoxide Alarm if it alarms. Refer to
"If Your CO Alarm Sounds" for more information. Failure to do so can
result in injury or death.
Test the CO Alarm once a week. If the CO Alarm ever fails to test
correctly, have it replaced immediately! If the CO Alarm is not working
properly, it cannot alert you to a problem.
This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations of family
living units. It is not designed to measure CO levels in compliance
with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) commer-
cial or industrial standards. Individuals with medical conditions that
may make them more sensitive to carbon monoxide may consider
using warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for
carbon monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm. For additional infor-
mation on carbon monoxide and your medical condition contact your
physician.
HOW YOUR CO ALARM WORKS
GENERAL INFORMATION
Leave your CO Alarm plugged in year-round. CO problems can occur any
time during the year, and this Alarm can only alert you if it is plugged in
and receiving power.
This CO Alarm is intended for use in a standard, unswitched 120V AC wall
outlet. It is not intended for use in extension cords, power strips, or outlets
controlled by a switch or dimmer. These may not provide continuous power to
the unit. When fully powered, the unit samples the air and takes a new reading
about every second. A microchip inside the unit stores each reading, and
remembers the levels of CO it has been exposed to over time. The Alarm
sounds when it has been exposed to a "critical" level of CO (measured in
parts per million or "ppm") within a specified time (measured in minutes). This
CO Alarm features a permanently installed sensor, an indicator light, and an
85 dB alarm horn. It also has a Silence Feature to temporarily quiet the alarm
horn.
MALFUNCTION WARNING
This unit performs self-diagnostic tests approximately every second. If the
Alarm malfunctions, replace it immediately.
