5800CO Carbon Monoxide Detector with Built-in Wireless Transmitter
Installation and Setup Guide
The 5800CO is a 3V battery-powered wireless Carbon Monoxide (CO)
detector intended for use with wireless alarm systems that support
5800 series devices. Consult your control panel's installation
instructions for compatibility.
Compatible Controls: This detector can be used with 5800 series
compatible controls (Listed to UL864 and/or UL985) that support a
carbon monoxide zone type and utilize a 5881 receiver.
The detector consists of an electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor
assembly coupled to a wireless transmitter. The transmitter can send
alarm, trouble, end-of-life, tamper, and battery condition messages to
the system's receiver. Refer to the wireless system's instructions for
the maximum number of transmitters that can be supported.
NOTICE: These instructions should be left with the owner/user of
IMPORTANT: This detector must be tested and maintained
regularly following NFPA 720 requirements.
WARNING: This product is not intended for use in industrial
factories or commercial parking garages.

The 5800CO contains a piezoelectric horn which generates the ANSI
S3.41 temporal 4 pattern in an alarm condition (see note below Table 1
for a description of the temporal 4 pattern). In alarm, a message is
also sent to the control panel and the detector's zone number is
displayed at the console. The alarm message is transmitted every 4
secs until the carbon monoxide condition has cleared and the detector
has reset. During an alarm condition, pressing the detector's
Test/Hush button will silence the piezoelectric horn for 5 minutes.
Once the detector has reset, a RESTORE message is transmitted to
the control panel and the transmitter's zone number can be cleared
from the panel.
The detector's base accommodates a variety of methods for mounting.
Two LEDs and a sounder on the detector provide local visual and
audible indication of the detector's status as listed in Table 1.
During initial power-up, the red and green LEDs will blink together
once every 10 secs four times. It takes about 30 secs for the detector's
CO sensor to stabilize (see Table 1).
After power-up has completed and the detector is functioning
normally, the green LED blinks once every 10 secs. The LED
indication must not be used in place of the tests specified under
TESTING THE DETECTOR.

Test (after canned
CO is dispensed)
† Temporal 4 pattern is a repeated series of 4 short beeps followed by
a 5 sec pause. If ambient conditions return to normal, the CO
detector will switch from Alarm mode to its previous mode.
†† Red and green LEDs blink a total of 4 times, once every 10 secs.
Hush feature: If necessary, the audible alarm can be silenced for 5
minutes by pushing the Test/Hush button. The red alarm light will
continue to flash in temporal 4 pattern. If carbon monoxide is still
present after the 5-minute hush period, the audible alarm will sound.
The Hush feature will not operate at levels above 350 ppm (parts per
million) carbon monoxide.
Trouble feature: When the sensor supervision is in a trouble
condition, the detector will send a trouble signal to the panel. The red
LED blinks once every five secs. Trouble conditions include an open
circuit, sensor removal (tamper), and sensor end of life.
End of Life Timer feature: When the detector has reached the end
of its life, the detector will send a trouble signal to the panel. This
indicates that the CO sensor inside the detector has passed the end
of its life and the detector must be replaced. This detector's lifespan
is approximately six years from its date of manufacture. Refer to
Detector Replacement section of this manual.
Low Battery Detection: The 5800CO is powered by a single 3-volt
CR123A or DL123A Lithium battery (included). The detector checks
for a low battery at least every 65 minutes. If a low battery is detected,
the transmitter sends a low battery message to the control panel,
which beeps and displays the detector's zone number. In addition, the
detector's red LED will blink every 45 secs. After 7 days, the detector's
horn will "chirp" about every 45 secs (red LED continues to blink) for
up to 30 days. Pressing the Test/Hush button during this time will
silence the chirps for 12 hours, if no other trouble conditions exist. The
battery should be replaced BEFORE the chirps begin. Be sure to
replace the battery with a fresh one.
