1. Welcome
Thank you for purchasing this Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm.
The symbols above mean that the alarm is suitable for use in
domestic premises (including static caravan holiday homes),
caravans, motor caravans and boats.
This manual contains important safety information about the
installation and operation of the alarm. Read the manual carefully
and keep it in a safe place for future reference.
Warnings
Installation of a CO alarm should not be used as a substitute
for proper installation, use and maintenance of fuel burning
appliances including appropriate ventilation and exhaust
systems.
This CO alarm is designed to protect individuals from the
acute effects of carbon monoxide exposure. It will not fully
safeguard individuals with specific medical conditions. If in
doubt consult a medical practitioner.
Long exposure to low levels (>10 ppm) of CO may cause
chronic effects. If in doubt consult a medical practitioner.

2. Description
XC70
XC100
Honeywell offers three versions of its battery powered CO alarms,
with different user interfaces and lifetime:
XC70
The basic model
uses indicator lights to visually signal the
state of the unit and comes with 7 years life and warranty
XC100
XC100D
and
both show big alarm messages in the case of
an alarm, and both come with 10 years life and warranty.
XC100D
has an LCD screen to provide more information about
rising CO levels and recorded CO peak levels.
In addition, all versions have an audible alarm and a
button.
All Honeywell X-Series alarms can be wirelessly interconnected
using an optional plug-in module. This means that if one X-Series
CO or Fire Alarm triggers an alarm, all interconnected units will
give an audible alarm as well. This is especially useful, when
living in a large or multi-story dwelling. Some wireless module
information is included in this manual for completeness.
2
All alarms have four status indicator lights, an audible alarm and a
TEST/HUSH
button.
The green
POWER
light indicates that the unit is activated and
working normally.
The red
ALARM
light indicates that a dangerous CO condition has
been detected.
The blue
VENTILATE
light gives an early indication of a dangerous
CO condition.
The yellow
FAULT
light indicates that the unit is not working
properly.
The
TEST/HUSH
button is used to test the unit, or to mute an alarm
or fault signal.
Normal operation
The green
POWER
light will flash once per minute, to indicate that
your alarm is working. The screen of the XC100D will be blank.
Alarm
If a dangerous CO condition is detected the red
message will flash and the audible alarm will sound continuously.
XC100D
will display the current CO level and a skull symbol.

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an invisible, odourless gas which is
highly toxic. It is produced by the incomplete burning of fuels such
as wood, charcoal, coal, heating oil, paraffin, petrol, natural gas,
propane, butane etc. and by cigarette smoke. A dangerous level of
CO can occur if an appliance is faulty or badly maintained, if a flue
is blocked or if a room is inadequately ventilated.
XC100D
The poisoning effect of breathing in CO depends on the
concentration (described in parts per million, ppm) and how long
you are exposed for.

200 – 300 ppm

4. CO Alarm Operation

If your unit is in ALARM, keep calm, and carry out the
following actions in the order given:
• Open all doors and windows to increase the rate of
ventilation
• Stop using all fuel-burning appliances and turn them off
where possible
• If the alarm continues, then evacuate the premises. Leave
the doors and windows open, and only re-enter the building
when the alarm has stopped
• Get medical help for anyone suffering the effects of
Carbon Monoxide poisoning, such as headache or nausea,
and advise that Carbon Monoxide inhalation is suspected
• Telephone the gas or other fuel supplier on their emergency
number, so that the source of carbon monoxide emissions
can be identified and corrected
• Do not use the fuel-burning appliances again until they
have been checked and cleared for use by a competent
ALARM
light/
person according to national regulations
Note: There may be another source of carbon monoxide
emission apart from fuel-burning appliances, for example a
large amount of tobacco smoke, town gas or emission from a
button to return to
smouldering fire.

The CO alarm will activate if it has detected a certain
concentration for a given time, as described below:
50 ppm:
100 ppm:

The CO alarm is set in accordance with the relevant European
standard to provide alarms that are determined by the
concentration and how long it has been present. This ensures
that the alarm activates when dangerous levels of CO have built

Event logger
Honeywell's CO alarms record a history of events, which can
be downloaded by professionals. This provides a more in depth
analysis of CO events such as detailed information on the CO
concentration of the last 7 days, and weekly maximums for the
whole operating life. Dates of alarm events are recorded.

A replace by date is also printed on the side of the unit to
facilitate an advance replacement before the end-of-life signal
is given. This date includes a 6 months shelf life, i.e. this is the
latest date the unit should be replaced. An end-of-life signal may
be given earlier.
