INSTALLING THE CO ALARM
This CO alarm is powered by a battery and requires no additional wiring. It can either be installed
on the wall using the fixings provided or on a tabletop.
Wall mount installation:
- Having established the mounting location ensure that there in no electrical wiring or pipe work
in the area adjacent to the mounting surface.
- Mark the two mounting hole locations (2).
- Drill holes in the positions marked. Insert wall plugs into the drilled holes.
- Screw mounting bracket to mounting surface. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN (3)
- Insert 3xLR6 Alkaline battery firmly Into battery compartment on the rear of the detector (4).
NOTE For the safety of the end user the CO alarm cannot be fitted without its battery.
Assemble the alarm onto the mounting plate (5).
Test whether the CO alarm is functioning properly by holding the test button on the front of the
alarm for 2 sec. and then release it. The unit will sound 4 beep tones and the red LED will flash at
the same time.

WHAT IS CARBON MONOXIDE
POSITIONING THE CO ALARM
Alarm Condition
Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an insidious poison that Is released when fuels are burnt. It is a Carbon Monoxide has a Similar density to warm air and, to ensure that the most effective use is When the unit detects dangerous levels of CO, it will emit an alarm signal of 4 beeps along with
