The ACM4 is a carbon monoxide detector (CO detector) accessory head for use with Fieldpiece modular instruments. It has a fast reacting electrochemical sesor specific designed to detect carbon Monoxide (CO). Use the ACM4 to hunt down sources of potentially life-threatening, poisonous gas. And easily replace the sensor in the field when necessary.
Carbon monoxide (CO), a product of combustion is an oderless, colorless gas. Faulty combustion equipment is one source of this dangerious gas known as the "silent killer".
The ACM4 carbom monoxide detector measures CO in parts per million (ppm). Use it for walk-around tests to help pinpoint sources of CO indoors.
CO Exposure Effects:
|9 ppm||Minimal. Max allowable concentration for eight hours (EPA and ASHRAE).|
|35 ppm||Max for continuous exposure for one hour (EPA and ASHRAE).|
|50 ppm||Max for eight hours (OSHA).|
|100 ppm||Trips installed CO detectors. UL2034 specifies a max exposure of 100 min.|
|200 ppm||In two to three hours: slight headache, tiredness, dizziness, nausea. UL2034 specifies a max exposure of 35 min.|
|400 ppm||In one or two hours: frontal headaches. In three hours: life threatening. UL2034 specifies a max exposure of 15 min.|
|800 ppm||In fourty five minutes: dizziness, nausea, and convulsions.|
|800 ppm||In two to three hours: death.|
|1600 ppm||In one hour: death.|
|6400 ppm||In fifteen minutes: death.|
|12800 ppm||in three minutes: death.|
Effects can vary significatly depending on age, sex, weight, and overall health. Never stay in an area of high concentration of CO, get outdoors and call emergency response.
The ACM4 Carbon Monoxide Detector (CO Detector) offers several features and benefits to field technicians:
