Carbon Monoxide Detectors
A carbon monoxide detector or CO detector is a device that detects the presence of the carbon monoxide (CO) gas in order to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
CO is a colorless and odorless compound produced by incomplete
combustion. It is often referred to as the "silent killer" because it is
virtually undetectable without using detection technology.
Elevated levels of CO can be dangerous to humans depending on the
amount present and length of exposure. Smaller concentrations can be
harmful over longer periods of time while increasing concentrations
require diminishing exposure times to be harmful.
