Features and Benefits
The Kidde 900-0280 AC Powered, Plug-in carbon monoxide
alarm with sealed lithium battery backup and digital display is
an easy to install unit that provides reliable protection against
the dangers of carbon monoxide. The 10-year* sealed battery
offers protection during power outages, prevents unwarranted
removal of the battery, and eliminates the need for annual
battery replacement.
• 10 Year Sealed Battery – Provides protection during power
outages and does not need replacement during life of the alarm.
The digital display feature adds an advanced level of protection
showing CO levels in PPM allowing you to see if levels change.
This display uses LED technology which allows the CO levels to
be visible in dark conditions and further distances than other
alarms that use less visible LCD components. The display will
automatically adjust brightness level to adapt to ambient light
conditions, which offers both a brighter display during lighted
environments and dims to provide a visible, but softer contrast
at night. The display deactivates when AC power is removed
to conserve battery life.
The Kidde 900-0280 has a 10-year operational life, which provides a 40% longer lifespan than other plug-in CO alarms. The
alarm includes a 10-year limited warranty, and is listed by UL
to the UL2034 Standard.
• Digital Display – Displays the level of CO the unit is sensing.
LEDs provide clear daytime visibility that automatically dims in
dark conditions.
• Peak Level Button – Displays the highest level of CO recorded
since last reset. Ideal for checking previous conditions while
away or to assist medical responders.
• Test/Reset Button – Tests the unit for proper operation. Resets
the Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
• 10-Year End of Life Warning – Alerts user to replace CO
alarm after 10 years of operation, as required by UL.
• Rotating AC Blades – Unit remains vertical whether electrical
socket is in vertical or horizontal orientation.
• UL Listed – Listed by UL to the UL2034 Standard..

Plug-In Carbon Monoxide Alarm —AC Powered with
Sealed Lithium Battery Backup and Digital Display
Part Number: 900-0280
Model KN-COP-DP-10YL
Architectural and Engineering
The carbon monoxide alarm shall be Kidde model number KN-COPDP-10YL (Part Number 900-0280) or approved equal. It shall be
powered by a 120VAC, 60 Hz source along with a 3V sealed lithium
battery backup. The temperature rating shall be between 40°F and
100°F (4°C and 38°C) and the humidity operating range shall be
10% - 95% relative humidity, non-condensing.
Part Number:900-0280
Power Source:
120VAC, 60 Hz, 90mA max
The CO sensor shall be of a fuel cell design and shall meet the sensitivity requirements of Underwriters Laboratories UL2034 Single and
Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms. The unit shall provide an
accuracy of +/- 30% when reading concentration levels.
The alarm shall include an integral plug that can be installed in any
outlet following the UL/NFPA/Manufacturer’s recommended guidelines. The AC blades remain vertical independent of whether the
electrical socket is mounted vertically or horizontally. The unit shall
incorporate a digital display that meets the sensitivity requirements
of UL2034. The display will identify the levels of CO in parts per million (ppm) once that level reaches 30ppm. The display will automatically dim in low light conditions, and will turn off when AC power is
removed unless more than 100ppm is detected or in alarm mode.
Audio Alarm:
85dB at 10ft
Temperature Range:
40˚F (4˚C) to 100˚F (38˚C)
Humidity Range:
10%-95% relative humidity (RH), non-condensing
3.0” x 5.6” x 1.5”
.62 lb.
10 year limited
The alarm shall include a test/reset button. If pressed and released
during normal operation, it shall electronically simulate the presence
of CO and cause the unit to go into alarm. This sequence tests the
unit’s electronics to ensure proper operation. If pressed during alarm
mode, the unit will be silenced and will begin monitoring CO levels
In accordance with UL2034, the CO sensor will not alarm to levels of
CO below 30 ppm and will alarm in the following time range when
exposed to the corresponding levels of CO.
70 ppm CO concentration: 60-240 minutes
150 ppm CO concentration: 10-50 minutes
400 ppm CO concentration: 4-15 minutes
WARNING: This product is intended for use in ordinary indoor
locations of family living units. It is not designed to measure compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
commercial or industrial standards.
The alarm shall include a piezoelectric horn that is rated at 85 decibels at 10 feet. When the unit detects carbon monoxide, the alarm
pattern will be four (4) short beeps – followed by five (5) seconds
of silence – followed by four (4) short beeps. A number reading will
appear on the digital display identifying the measured CO concentration (in ppm).
This device is designed to protect individuals from acute effects of
Carbon Monoxide exposure. It will not fully safeguard individuals with specific medical conditions. If in doubt, consult a medical
practitioner. Individuals with medical problems may consider using
warning devices which provide audible and visual signals for carbon
monoxide concentrations under 30 ppm.
Industry experts recommend a CO alarm be installed on each level
of the home--ideally on any level with fuel burning appliances and
outside of sleeping areas.– see User Guide for further information.
