IMPORTANT !
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.
WARNING ! This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor locations of
family living units. Do not expose to rain or moisture. The detector will not
protect against risk of carbon monoxide poisoning when the battery is flat.
Do cover the alarm when decorating. REMEMBER to uncover the unit when
decoration is finished (excessive fumes from paints, solvents, cleaning agents,
etc. may damage or deteriorate sensor). The CO alarm shall not be seen as a
substitute for proper servicing of fuel-burning appliances, or the sweeping of
chimneys.
WARNING ! THIS ALARM CONFORMES TO BSEN50291:2001 MAY
NOT PROTECT INDIVIDUALS FROM THE ACUTE EFFECTS OF CARBON MONOXIDE EXPOSURE. IT WILL NOT FULLY SAFEGUARD INDIVIDUALS WITH SPECIFIC MEDICAL CONDITIONS. IF IN ANY DOUBT,
CONSULT A MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.

NEVER IGNORE THE CO ALARM
CO is called the “silent killer” because it is an invisible, odorless, tasteless gas
produced when fossil fuels do not burn completely, or are exposed to heat (usually fire). These fuels include: Wood, coal, charcoal, oil, natural gas, gasoline,
kerosene, and propane. Electrical appliances typically do not produce CO.
Many cases of reported CO poisoning indicate that while victims are aware
they are not well, they become so disoriented, that they are unable to save
themselves by either exiting the building or calling for assistance.
Be aware that CO poisoning may be the cause of flu-like symptoms such as
headaches, tightness of chest, dizziness, fatigue, confusion and breathing difficulties. Because CO poisoning often causes a victim’s blood pressure to rise,
the victim’s skin may take on a pink or red cast. Extreme exposure to CO can
cause brain damage, death.
WARNING: EXPOSURE TO HIGH LEVELS OF CARBON MONOXIDE
CAN BE FATAL OR CAUSE PERMANENT DAMAGE AND DISABILITIES.
COMMON RISKS FOR CO POISONING
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Technical problems with equipment, depending on faults, lack of service
or maintenance.
Faulty chimney or ventilation pipe which can have fallen or clogged(e.g.
bird nest, snow, etc.)
Faulty ventilation direction of air, so called back draught.
Faulty installation of burner.
In equipment which is used regularly; for shorter periods of time, or by
different people.
Chimneys of the wrong size etc.
Garden grills which are used indoors.
INSTALLATION:
CAUTION: DO NOT INSTALL THE ALARM IN NEW OR RENOVATED
BUILDINGS UNTIL ALL WORK IS COMPLETED, INCLUDING PAINTING AND FINAL CLEANING (EXCESSIVE FUMES FROM PAINTS; SOLVENTS, MAY CAUSE DAMAGE AND DIRT OR DEBRIS MAY BLOCK
THE GAS ENTRY).
The CO Alarm is designed for easy installation. It comes completely with
mounting kit. All you have to do is attach the mounting bracket to the wall with

LOCATION – WHERE TO INSTALL CO ALARM
 Minimum Protection
 Added Protection
•
The alarm should be installed in every level of your home, preferably in
every room. If this is not possible, install at least one alarm near or within
•
•
•
•
each separate sleeping area.
If more than one sleeping area or the bedroom doors are closed during the
night, you may need more than one CO alarm
For added protection, install at least one CO alarm in each level of the
home and at the top of the basement stairs.
Install an additional CO alarm at least 6 meter (20 feet) away from the
furnace or fuel burning heat source or appliance.
CO alarm is available for boats and recreational vehicles.
IMPORTANT: CO alarm should be placed where you will hear it while sleeping.

•
Within 1.5m (5 feet) of any gas appliance as furnace.
In any high level of dusty, dirty or greasy area
In damp or very humid areas, outdoor room or next to bathroom, at least
installed the alarm 3 meters (10 feet) away from the bathroom.
In very cold or very hot area where the temperature could not be less than
-10ºC or greater than 40ºC.
Humidity is less than 30% RH or more than 90% RH.
In direct sunlight and direct above a sink or cooker.
Behind drapes, curtains, furniture or other obstruction.
In unheated basements or garages.
In location where they are exposed to chemical solvents or cleaners.
Near vents, flues and chimneys.
Near heating and cooking appliances.
In turbulent air, like near ceiling fans, heat vent, air conditioners, fresh air
return, or near the open window, because of the blowing air may delay
CO from reaching the alarm.
OPERATING AND TESTING CO ALARM
When the battery is installed, Green LED will flash once indicating the alarm
is powered and wait for about 1 minute to stabilize the sensor before testing the
unit. To test the unit, press and hold the button until the repeating series of 4
beeps sound with Red LED flashes. When the button is released, the siren will
stop.
Check and test the CO alarm after installation. Ensure that you can clearly hear
the CO alarm in sleeping area. It should be tested weekly and check after reoccupation following a holiday.
Check that Green LED flashes about every minute to ensure the unit is in
operating mode.
If the Green LED is not flashing once per minute, or the unit does not respond
to the test button:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Make sure the unit contains the recommended type of battery
Ensure the battery is installed correctly.
Make sure the unit has been cleaned adequately.
Check for obvious damage.
If the alarm still fails to work, it must be replaced immediately. Do not attempt
to repair it yourself, warranty will be void.
Note: The test push button is independent function with hush button. During
the normal testing mode, the silence feature will not active.
ADDITIONAL FEATURES
The CO alarm comes with the following friendly additional features for use.
Silence feature - This feature can be used to silence nuisance alarms. Press
test/silence button during alarm condition will silence the alarm signal for 4
minutes. If the CO surrounding level reaches 200 ppm, the alarm will reactivate. Observe that the Red LED repeatedly series 4 flashes during hush model
last for 4 minutes. The unit will automatically return to normal mode after 4
minutes. If the concentration is increased, the silencer (hush) feature is by pass
and the unit will alarm.
CAUTION : If the CO concentration at 200 ppm the silence feature does not
activate. The user must be aware that if the alarms continually after push the
silence button, the CO concentration surrounding the alarm could be 200 ppm
or greater. Always determine why the alarm has been trigged before using the
silence feature. If the case of alarm is not clear, assure that there is an actual
CO leakage and evacuate the area.
Relay output – The relay wich the CO alarm is mounted on is equipped with a
latching relay output for connection with external equipment (N.O. and/or N.C.).
Interlink function - This alarm can be interlinked with up to 11 other alarms
(12 in all) using the interlink terminal located next to the relay terminal on the
relay base. When your CO-alarm receives a signal from other units it will be
triggered to alarm as well and red LED will flash continuously. If you wish to
silence the incoming alarm, press the silencer button and only the red LED will
continue to flash.
Pre-alarm warning – when the unit detects CO level 40 ppm or greater, the
Red LED will flash every 8 seconds until alarm.
Memory function - When a unit alarms due to CO or other reasons (not from
test button), the memory function will be activated in the unit that has detected
the CO and will be held for 12 hours. The indication of an alarm incidence
being stored in the memory function consists of a short beep every 8 seconds.
During this memory indication period, the normal operating and function of the
unit is not affected and the user can reset/deactivate the memory function by
pressing the test push button until an alarm sounds.
Self diagnostics – Automatically check the sensor every 8s to ensure of correct
operating of alarm.
Low battery warning – When the battery power deteriorated, the unit will emit
one beep with Yellow LED flash every minute to remind user to replace battery.
Fault warning – If a fault is detected, the unit will emit 2 beeps with Yellow
LED flash every 8 seconds to indicate the sensor is fault or not working properly so CO alarm must be replaced.
End of alarm life warning – When the CO alarm comes to end of life, the unit
will emit 3 beeps with Yellow LED flash every minute. When this happen, the
CO alarm must be replaced.
Temporary delay warning signal – When the time to replace battery or end
of life CO alarm warning occurs, the user can push the testbutton to temporarily disable low battery- or end of life- warnings for 12 hours to avoid beeing
unnecessarily bothered by the signal especially in the middle of night. This is
indicated by 3 flashes with Red LED. User may press test button to alarm again
to deactivate function and return to warning mode at any time.
CO ALARM SOUNDS
