Honeywell 5800CO Installation And Setup Manual

Carbon monoxide detector with built-in wireless transmitter


Quick Links

The 5800CO is a 3V battery powered wireless Carbon Monoxide (CO)
detector intended for use with wireless alarm systems that support
5800 series devices. Refer to control/communicator 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 this equipment.
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.
Detector Description
• Listed to UL standard 2075
CO sensitivity is evaluated to UL 2034
• Supervised
• Local sounder
• Dual LED's
• Test/Hush button
• Surface mount to wall or ceiling
• Optional drywall anchors included
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 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 seconds until the
carbon monoxide condition has cleared and the detector has reset.
During an alarm condition, pressing the detector's test button will
silence the piezoelectric horn for five 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
mounting base installation is simplified by the incorporation of
features compatible with drywall fasteners or other methods that
provide a method for securing the detector in place.
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 seconds four times. It takes about 30 seconds 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 seconds. The LED
indication must not be used in place of the tests specified under
5800CO Carbon Monoxide Detector
with Built-in Wireless Transmitter

† Temp 4 pattern is repeated pattern of four short beeps followed by
a five second pause. If ambient conditions return to normal, the
detector will self-restore out of alarm and into the previous mode.
†† Red and green LEDs blink a total of four times, once every 10
Hush feature: If required, the audible alarm can be silenced for five
minutes by pushing the Test button. The red alarm light will
continue to flash in temp-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 seconds. 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 the date of manufacture. Refer to
Detector Replacement section.
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 red LED of the detector will blink every 45 seconds.
After 7 days the detector's horn will "chirp" about every 45 seconds
(red LED continues to blink) for up to 30 days. Pressing the test
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
