Pocket CO, Model 300
Pocket CO Model 300 is the world’s smallest and most affordable carbon monoxide detector, alarm and dosimeter. About the size of a key fob and weighing less than 1 oz., this wearable instrument is a highly sensitive, reliable and popular instrument. Range: 0 – 500ppm; first alarm at 50ppm, second at 125ppm, third at 400ppm. Also has an 8-hour TWA warning alarm at 25ppm. The instrument self-checks upon start and carries a 2 year instrument warranty.
Pocket CO Model 300 has been designed as a simple and effective tool to determine, measure, or record Carbon Monoxide (CO) levels in any environment. The instrument has been programmed based on guidelines for indoor and outdoor CO exposure from several organizations, including OSHA and ACGIH. Alarms are factory set at 50PPM, the ACGIH maximum recommended short-term exposure of 125PPM, and a death hazard of 400 PPM CO.
Low levels of CO, typically less than 10 PPM, are not considered especially hazardous, but they do indicate a source of CO. Sustained levels above 25 PPM for 8 hours, and short-term exposure to more than 125 PPM CO, should be avoided. Seek clean air, ventilation, or any other means to eliminate exposure.
Pocket CO Model 300 is a stand-alone unit, and because of its small size can be carried on a key ring, clipped to a worker’s shirt pocket, or attached to the dashboard of a vehicle or piece of equipment. Pocket CO is designed specifically to be affordable and easy to use by health professionals and concerned homeowners. The device can be used in CO detection applications such as OSHA enforcement, fire service exposure, parking garages, warehouses, municipal buildings, hotel rooms, home furnace inspection and barbecue areas; and for mobile measurements on boats, cars, trucks, trains, airplanes, and anywhere else Carbon Monoxide exposure is possible.
Why buy a PocketCO?
Calibration of Pocket CO is recommended at least yearly to ensure accurate readings, or whenever the accuracy of the readings is critical. Calibration can be done though KWJ's TechCheck service, or by using the Home Calibration Kit (Model 300 only). The Home Calibration Kit is safe and easy to use, and takes just minutes.
TechCheck service is an easy way to perform the recommended yearly calibration. It is also the way to replace a dead battery on your CO sensor. This service includes a full inspection of your instrument, calibration and testing, new battery, and new CO sensor element if needed. Instruments can be sent to KWJ Engineering for a TechCheck through the mail.
