Electrochemical Sensing Technology -
Electrochemical detectors are the newest, most refined CO detectors available
and provide the most accurate measurement of CO concentration obtainable. They
can take readings from low levels that may be hazardous over long periods of
time to high concentrations that present an immediate danger.
Local Sounder - A built-in piezoelectric horn
generates the ANSI S3.41 temporal 4 pattern in an alarm condition. The local
sounder will also alert the end-user of other conditions such as low battery,
detector trouble and end-of-life.
LED Status Indicators - Dual LEDs provide local
visual indication of the detector’s status–including normal operation, alarm,
low battery, trouble and end-of-life.
End of Life Timer - When the detector has reached
the end of its life, the detector will send a trouble signal to the panel. This
indicates that the CO sensor inside the detector has passed the end of its life
and the detector needs to be replaced. The detector’s lifespan is approximately
six years from the date of manufacture.
Full Supervision - The 5800CO is fully supervised
to monitor for low battery, case tamper and trouble conditions.
Test/Hush Button - This dual purpose button
allows the end-user to perform periodic testing of the detector. In the event of
a CO alarm, this button will silence the local sounder alarm for a five minute
period. Note: the Hush feature will not operate at levels above 350 ppm (parts
per million) carbon monoxide.
Versatile Mounting - Whether you choose to affix
the detector to the ceiling or a wall, mounting is made simple with the enclosed
hardware. The mounting base has large mounting ports, which accommodate drywall
anchors for easy surface mounting.
Tamper Protection and Tamper Resistant Element -
The detector has a built-in tamper switch that can communicate back to the
control panel in the event it is removed from the base. For an added level of
security, the detector also includes a tamper resistant element that prevents
removal from the base without the use of a tool.
