Carbon Monoxide Detector KIDDE 5CO
The 5CO carbon monoxide detector is used for continuous monitoring of premises exposed to the danger of this poisonous gas. The sensor is equipped with optical (red LED) and acoustic signaling (85 dB pulsating alarm sound) which automatically starts when a threat is detected. Its TEST / RESET button is used for verifying all functions of the sensor and stopping alarms. Self-diagnostic circuitry of the detector constantly monitors the condition of the sensor, battery and internal circuits.
Thanks to the fact that the unit is battery-powered, it is independent from the AC power network and can be installed in any suitable place. The user is informed on low battery or a malfunction by a sound signal. The device is covered by a 7-year warranty. During that time, it does not require any calibration (the maintenance is only limited to battery exchange). After 7-year protection period the unit has to be replaced by a new one.
  • one of the world's most precise electrochemical CO sensors,
  • loud alarm sound,
  • Test / Reset button to control the device,
  • battery-operated device - independence from AC power network,
  • low battery, error and end of product life alarms,
  • wall mountable (can also be placed on a flat surface),
  • ergonomic and tough casing,
  • easy to mount and operate,
  • 7-year warranty.
CO alarm threshold levels and alarm activation times are compliant with EN 50291-1:2010:
  • 30 PPM - no alarm before 120 minutes
  • 50 PPM - alarm between 60-90 minutes
  • 100 PPM - alarm between 10-40 minutes
  • 300 PPM - alarm within 3 minutes
The detector has the certificate of compliance with EN 50291-1: 2010 for home CO detectors. The compliance with this standard has been confirmed by an independent research unit - British Standard Institute (BSI).
