Manufacturers : Safety and surveillance electronics : Carbon monoxide detectors

Carbon monoxide is an odourless, colourless, tasteless poisonous gas which can be produced by incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons. Carbon monoxide remains a significant cause of human fatality because of its colorless and odorless characteristics. The human body has generally a low tolerance for carbon monoxide gas since a concentration of approximately 0.05% over an extended period of time or 1% for a few minutes could prove to be a fatal dosage for humans. The emission of carbon monoxide can be fatal and there have been people killed by carbon monoxide poisoning in these circumstances, even levels of carbon monoxide below the lethal limit can cause headaches, nausea and illness due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Public awareness of the dangers posed by carbon monoxide in the home and continuing advances in carbon monoxide detection technology and reliability has greatly increased the number of carbon monoxide detectors installed in homes. Existing types of carbon monoxide detectors include chemical carbon monoxide detectors, electrochemical carbon monoxide detectors, semiconducting or spectroscopic (infra-red) carbon monoxide detectors. The most popular carbon monoxide detectors for domestic use utilize a gas sensitive semiconductor, the resistance of which changes upon exposure to a reducing gas. Carbon monoxide detectors are typically mounted at various strategic locations around a house or building to detect dangerous air quality conditions as a result of such things as a fire or a smoke or carbon monoxide producing event.
