CARBON MONOXIDE GAS ALARM

Modified on Wed, 08 May 2024 at 03:37 PM


All sensors and accessory components supplied with your CarPro-Tec are already taught-in and fully configured. 

Please use the CarPro-Tec quick guide for the initial commissioning of your new CarPro-Tec. These detailed instructions will help you with detailed setting options.




General information


Our carbon monoxide gas detector reliably monitors the interior for the formation of dangerous CO gas.


If carbon-containing material is not completely burnt (e.g. gas oven, hob, gas heater or parking heater), carbon monoxide is produced. If the deadly, odourless gas carbon monoxide escapes due to a defect, the carbon monoxide gas detector triggers an alarm immediately.








Single or with CarPro-Tec


Like any conventional stand-alone gas alarm, the carbon monoxide gas detector can also be used without CarPro-Tec, as it triggers its own alarm in the event of danger.

In combination with CarPro-Tec, safety is enhanced by the additional triggering of the alarm system and immediate alerting on your smartphone.



Teach-in


Note: All sensors and accessory components supplied with your CarPro-Tec are already programmed and configured.

  1. Press and hold the ACCESSORIES button on the CarPro-Tec with a thin object. (ACCESSORIES LED in the status LED bar lights up red) 
  2. Press and hold the button in the centre of the device until a signal tone sounds.
  3. The CarPro-Tec beeps twice if the teach-in process is successful.



Initial commissioning


Step 1:
Place the CO detector on the front.



Step 2:
Remove the plastic strip. Then wait approx. 1 minute.


 





Function test


Briefly press and hold the button in the centre of the CO detector once until you hear a single beep. If a tone is heard, the test was successful.



Installation instructions  


As CO gas is distributed very evenly in the air, we recommend installing the CO detector at a medium height (approx. 1 m) near the source of danger, such as a gas oven, hob, gas heater or auxiliary heater. In most cases, the wall opposite the kitchen unit is chosen.


Do not install the gas detector near doors, windows or extractor bonnets, as the actual gas content of the air cannot be measured reliably due to draughts in their vicinity. Also make sure that the CO gas detector cannot be reached by children / pets.


If you install the gas detector near your bathroom, please note that the CO detector can also be triggered unintentionally by hairspray (propellant gases).


We recommend screwless installation using the 3M magnetic pad supplied. Please observe the installation

 instructions for 3M adhesive pads. 


Maintenance


For your own safety, your CO detector should be checked/maintained regularly.


Weekly

Press and hold the button in the centre of the device until you hear the signal tone.

Quarterly

Visually check that the openings are freely accessible and that the CO detector is not damaged. 

A function test of the CO detector is possible by pressing and holding the centre button. 


The danger of CO gas


Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless, tasteless and toxic gas.

You should therefore leave the room immediately in the event of an alarm.


Alerting

 

The CO detector checks the surroundings every 6 seconds.

If CO gas is detected, the device sounds an alarm. Depending on the concentration of the gas, the CO detector sounds louder and the red LED flashes faster.

The different levels vary from 100ppm to 400ppm.
