CARBON MONOXIDE
AND HOW IT CAN
AFFECT YOU AND
YOUR FAMILY
Carbon monoxide is a dangerous,
poisonous gas that kills hundreds of
people each year and injures many more.
It is often referred to as the silent killer
because it has no odour or taste and
cannot be seen. Like oxygen, CO enters
the body through the lungs during the
normal breathing process. It competes
with oxygen by replacing it in the red
blood cells, thereby reducing the flow of
oxygen to the heart, brain and other vital
organs. In high concentrations, CO can kill
in minutes.
Many cases of reported carbon monoxide
poisoning indicate that while victims
are aware they are not feeling well, they
become disorientated and unable to save
themselves by either exiting the building
or calling for assistance. Exposure during
sleep is particularly dangerous because
the victim usually does not wake up.
Symptoms of CO poisoning
The following symptoms may be related
to CO poisoning which all household
members should be made aware of:
• Mild Exposure: Slight headache,
nausea, vomiting, fatigue (often
described as ‘flu-like’ symptoms).

Your CO detector monitors the level
of CO as parts per million (ppm) in the
atmosphere surrounding the detector.

Unconsciousness within 2
hours. Death within 2 - 3 hours.
Should you suspect CO may be affecting
you or your family, open the doors and
windows of your property to ventilate,
turn off your appliances and evacuate
the premises. At this time the authorities
should be contacted to locate the source
of the carbon monoxide before re-entering
the building. Medical attention should be
sought for anyone suffering the effects of
CO poisoning (headache, nausea).
Common sources of CO
• Oil and gas boilers
• Portable generators
• Oil or solid fuel cookers
• Gas or paraffin heaters
•Barbecues
• Clogged chimneys
• Wood or gas fireplaces
• Cigarette smoke
• Gas appliances
• Any fossil fuel-burning appliance
WARNING: This carbon monoxide
detector is not a combustible gas detector,
nor a smoke detector. Please install the
proper detectors to detect combustible
gases, or smoke.
This CO detector should not be seen as
a substitute for the proper installation,
use, and maintenance of fuel-burning
appliances
(including
appropriate
ventilation and exhaust systems), nor the
sweeping of chimneys.
WARNING: Variables relating to your
fuel-burning appliances can change at
any point eg. the flue or chimney could
suddenly become blocked or damaged,
appliances may stop running correctly or
circumstances in neighbouring properties
may change resulting in the presence
of carbon monoxide. For this and other
5
reasons do not use this carbon monoxide
detector on an intermittent basis, or as a
portable detector for trying to trace one
source of the spillage of combustion
products from fuel-burning appliances or
from chimneys.
• Have your appliances checked regularly
by a qualified service engineer.
Do not:
• IGNORE ANY WARNING FROM YOUR
CO DETECTOR!
• Open windows when a fireplace or oil/
solid fuel cooker is in use.
• Burn charcoal inside your home,
caravan, tent or cabin.
• Install, convert or service fuel-burning
appliances without proper knowledge,
skill and expertise.
• Use a gas cooker for heating a room.
• Operate unvented gas burning
appliances using paraffin or natural gas
in closed rooms.
• Operate petrol-powered engines
indoors or in confined areas.
• Ignore a safety device when it shuts an
appliance off.
• Barbecue indoors, or in an attached
garage.
• Have your chimneys and flues cleaned
professionally every year.
• Make regular visual inspections of all
fuel-burning appliances.
• Only install CO detectors that meet the
requirements of EN 50291-1: 2010 in
your home.
• Be aware of CO poisoning symptoms.
Educate yourself and your family on
the sources and symptoms of CO
poisoning and how to use your carbon
monoxide detector!
WHERE TO INSTALL
YOUR DETECTOR
This CO alarm is suitable for use in
domestic premises, caravan holiday
homes, caravans and motor caravans.
Always:
• Buy appliances accepted by a
recognised testing laboratory.
• Install appliances according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
• Have appliance installations carried out
by professionals (for gas appliances
engineers should be registered).

WARNING: This detector will only
indicate the presence of carbon monoxide
gas at the sensor. Carbon monoxide gas
may be present in other areas.
In which room should the detector
be installed?
Ideally, an apparatus should be installed
in every room containing a fuel-burning
appliance. Additional apparatus may be
installed to ensure that adequate warning
is given for occupants in other rooms, by
locating apparatus in:
• Remote rooms in which the occupant(s)
spend considerable time whilst awake
and from which they may not be
able hear an alarm from apparatus in
another part of the premises, and
• Every sleeping room.
However, if there is a fuel-burning
appliance in more than one room
and the number of apparatus is limited,
the following points should be considered
when deciding where best to put
the apparatus:
• Locate the apparatus in a room
containing a flueless or open-flued
appliance, and
• Locate apparatus in a room where the
occupant(s) spend most time.
• If the domestic premises is a bedsit (a
single room serving as both sitting and
bedroom) then the apparatus should be
put as far from the cooking appliances
as possible but near to where the
person sleeps.
• If the appliance is in a room not
normally used (for example a boiler
room), the apparatus should be
put just outside the room so that
the alarm may be heard more easily.
Alternatively, a remote alarm siren
may be connected to a type A
apparatus located in a room(s)
containing a fuel-burning appliance.
Where in the room should I place
the detector?
Apparatus located in the same room
as a fuel-burning appliance, for both
wall and ceiling mounted apparatus the
following applies:
a The apparatus should be at a horizontal
distance of between 1m and 3m from
the potential source.
b If there is a partition in a room, the
apparatus should be located on the
same side of the partition as the
potential source.
c Carbon monoxide detectors in rooms
with sloped ceilings should be located
at the high side of the room.
In addition to the above the following must
be observed if the apparatus is located on
a wall:
a it should be located close to the ceiling;
bit should be located at a height greater
than the height of any door or window;
c it should be at least 150mm from
the ceiling.
7
If the apparatus is located on the ceiling:
a it should be at least 300mm from any
wall and any ceiling obstruction e.g.
light fittings.
Apparatus located in sleeping rooms
and in rooms remote from a fuelburning appliance should be located
relatively close to the breathing zone of
the occupants.
Caravans
Caravans may have additional risks
of carbon monoxide ingress through
air vents due to the nearby presence
of other vehicles, engines, generators
or barbecues, however this does not
change the basic guidance on location
of the alarm. Caravans should be fitted
with an alarm in the same room as any
combustion appliance(s), located in
accordance with previous advice in this
section. If the caravan has a single living
space which incorporates the sleeping
accommodation, it can be considered to
be equivalent to a bedsit, and a single
alarm is sufficient. However, any sleeping
accommodation which is in a separate
room from the combustion appliance(s)
should also contain an alarm, located
in accordance with previous advice in
this section.
It is not always possible to find an
optimum location for an apparatus,
for example, a small caravan may not
have suitable vertical surfaces available.
Nevertheless, when fitting an apparatus
in such situations, the two most important
considerations
when
selecting
an
appropriate location are:
• Not mounting the apparatus directly
above a source of heat or steam; and
• Mounting the apparatus at a distance
of 1 – 3 m from the nearest edge of
the potential source.
HOW TO INSTALL
YOUR DETECTOR
NOTE: This apparatus should be installed
by a competent person who feels able to
install it according to the instructions.
Firstly write the installation date on

To place on a shelf:
The base of the detector has been designed
to allow it to stand freely on a shelf.
WARNING: When placing on a shelf,
please adhere to the same positional
recommendations as described in ‘Where
to install your detector’.
POWER PACK
ACTIVATION
aYour detector comes complete with an
integrated power pack that will provide
power for its entire operational life. To
activate the power pack you need to
pull the disabling tab. This will in turn
pull out the metal disabling clip, which
is attached to the end of the tab, from
the disabling socket which is situated on
the underside of the detector. Retain the
disabling tab for future use by taping it
to page 18 of this manual.
bWhen the detector is activated the
screen will display all of the icons, then
after a few seconds will show the
current CO level. The power indicator
LED below the
symbol will also
flash green once every minute to
indicate that the detector is receiving
power from the power pack and is fully
operational. A
symbol will also
flash briefly on the LCD screen
approximately once every minute.
cTest the sounder, power pack and
circuitry by pushing the centre of the
Test/Silence button briefly to confirm
that the detector is operating properly.
The sounder will sound as soon as the
button is pressed, and the alarm LED
will illuminate red indicating that the
sounder is working and the power pack
is providing power to the unit. You’ll
notice that the display will switch to
temperature mode, this is explained
later in the manual, press the button
again to return to the CO display. This
test for the sounder, power pack and
circuitry should be performed on a
weekly basis and should be continued
for the lifetime of the product.
9
WARNING: Prolonged exposure to the
sounder in close proximity to your ears
may damage your hearing.
Under normal operating conditions, the
power pack will last for the lifetime of the
product i.e. 7 years.
The clip must
remain in the
disabling socket
to keep the power
pack deactivated.
The detector will not protect against the
risk of carbon monoxide poisoning when
the power pack has drained.
WARNING: Prolonged exposure to
extreme high or low temperatures may
reduce the life of the power pack.
POWER PACK
DEACTIVATION
Your CO-9D is portable, making it ideal
for taking with you on holiday. You will
need to deactivate your detector when
travelling or even when storing e.g.
when decorating. Fitting is the reverse of
removal. To deactivate the detector the two
ends of the metal clip must be inserted into
the corresponding holes in the disabling
socket located on the underside of the
detector. You can ensure that the product
is disabled by pressing the test button - if
there is no sound from the sounder then
the clip has been fitted correctly.
NOTE: If the disabling tab is no longer
available then the clip can be replicated
by opening out a thin metal paper clip into
a U-shape.

to see if a readable level of CO has been
detected for a short time, but not long
enough to trigger a full alarm. The peak
level reading is shown briefly every time
you press the Test/Silence button and will
look something like the image below.

UNDERSTANDING
THE PRODUCT’S
INDICATORS
Digital display
The LCD screen has many icons with one
or more being shown at any one time.
Bar graph to show early build up
of CO
To understand the role of the product
indicators please refer to section ‘Carbon
monoxide and how it can affect your
family’. The alarm has a bar graph which
mimics the way CO levels build up in the
blood stream. The response times of the
alarm are determined by the European
Standard EN 50291-1: 2010 so the alarm
will only sound when it has detected CO
for a prescribed length of time, the higher
the level of CO the quicker the alarm must
sound. However with FireAngel’s CO-9D
there is an early visual warning that CO is
present. When CO is first detected the
alarm indicates it’s presence by displaying
the level on the screen in parts per million
(ppm). If CO continues to be present
additional bars will appear on the graph.
When the graph is full i.e. the 6th segment
is shown the unit will sound a loud audible
alarm (85 dB at 1m (3 feet)) and the alarm
LED below the
symbol on the front
of the detector will flash red once
every second.
The alarm will sound:
• Between 60 and 90 minutes when
exposed to a minimum of 50ppm
of CO.
• Between 10 and 40 minutes when
exposed to a minimum of 100ppm
of CO.
• Within 3 minutes when exposed to a
minimum of 300ppm of CO.
13
WARNING: A loud alarm is a warning that
unusually high and potentially lethal levels
of carbon monoxide are present. Never
ignore this alarm, further exposure can
be fatal. Immediately check residents for
symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning,
and contact the proper authorities to
resolve all CO problems. NEVER IGNORE
ANY ALARM.
Alarm silence:
It is possible to temporarily silence
the alarm up to two times if the
level of CO that triggered the
alarm is less than 200ppm. After
ventilating
the
property
you
can
temporarily silence the alarm by pressing
the Test/Silence button, the alarm will stop
and the silence mode symbol will appear
on the screen. The silence mode will last
for up to 3 minutes. If the CO level remains
too high the alarm will trigger again or if
the level of CO rises above 200ppm then
the detector will automatically re-enter
alarm mode. If the level of CO has fallen to
a satisfactory level the silence mode icon
will disappear, the unit will exit alarm
mode and the segments of the bar graph
will slowly disappear as the CO in the
sensor clears.
Alarm in absence:
If the peak level reading symbol
is showing on the screen but
there is no full alarm sound and
you are not pressing the test button, then
your detector is warning that it has
14
detected carbon monoxide in your
absence. Immediately vacate the premises
and seek medical attention for anyone
suffering the effects of CO poisoning. Treat
this as a serious warning. Call a qualified
technician and have the problem
investigated and rectified immediately.

ALARM TEST
Test the sounder, power pack and
circuitry by pressing and releasing the
Test/Silence button to confirm that the
alarm is operating properly. The alarm
should sound as soon as the Test button is
pressed, and the Alarm LED will illuminate
red indicating that the sounder is working
and the power pack is providing power to
the unit. This test should be performed on
a weekly basis. Perform the Sensor Test
annually.
WHAT TO DO IN THE
EVENT OF AN ALARM
WARNING: A loud alarm is a warning
that potentially lethal levels of carbon
monoxide are present. Never ignore
this alarm, further exposure can be
fatal. Immediately check residents for
symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning,
and contact the proper authorities to
resolve all CO problems. NEVER IGNORE
ANY ALARM.
Please carefully review this guide to
ensure that you know what actions to take
in the event of an alarm.
What to do during an alarm:
• Keep calm and open the doors and
windows to ventilate the property.
• Stop using all fuel-burning appliances
and ensure, if possible, that they are
turned off.
• Evacuate the property leaving the doors
and windows open.
• Ring your gas or other fuel supplier
on their emergency number; keep the
number in a prominent place.
• Do not re-enter the property until the
alarm has stopped. When exposed to
fresh air it can take up to 10 minutes
for the sensor to clear and the alarm to
stop depending on the level of carbon
monoxide detected.
• Get medical help immediately for anyone
suffering the effects of carbon monoxide
poisoning (headache, nausea), and
advise that carbon monoxide poisoning
is suspected.
• Do not use the appliances again until
they have been checked by an expert.
In the case of gas appliances the

MAINTENANCE
Your detector will alert you to potentially
hazardous CO concentrations in your
home when maintained properly. To keep
your alarm in proper working order, and
to ensure that the sensor will last for the
lifetime of the product, it is recommended
that you keep it free of dust by gently
vacuuming the case with a soft brush
attachment every 3 months.
To prevent the possibility of contaminating
the sensor in your detector and thus
affecting its reliability:
• Never use cleaning solutions on your
detector. Simply wipe with a slightly
damp cloth.
• Do not paint the detector.
• Do not spray aerosols on or near
the detector.
• Do not use any solvent based products
near the detector.
• Do not attempt to repair your CO
detector. Do not remove any screws
or open the main casing of your
detector. Any attempt to do so may
cause malfunction and will invalidate
the warranty.
