Kidde KN-COPP-B-LPM Battery-Operated Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Digital Display
Kidde KN-COPP-B-LPM Battery-Operated Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Digital Display Large digital backlit display is easy to read, even in low-light conditions Peak-level memory displays the highest CO concentration measured since the last reset Meets the requirements of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Battery operated with three AA batteries included Backed by a five-year warranty Kidde’s KN-COPP-B-LPM battery-operated carbon monoxide alarm with digital display helps to provide your home with extensive protection against the dangerous threat posed by the odorless and colorless gas. With an increasing number of state and local governments passing legislation requiring CO detectors in homes, it’s never been a better time to safeguard your family against carbon monoxide exposure. Features The KN-COPP-B-LPM is an essential device to help warn you and your family of dangerous carbon monoxide levels in your home. This alarm measures the exposure to carbon monoxide over time; it is designed to sound at 85 decibels at 10 feet when it detects 70 ppm (parts per million) of CO for 60 to 240 minutes, 150 ppm for 10 to 50 minutes, or 400 ppm for 4 to 15 minutes. The easily visible digital display indicates the level of CO that the unit is sensing, and it updates the status every 15 seconds for timely and accurate readings. Its free-standing design allows for attachment to a wall or placement on a counter or nightstand for convenient and comprehensive protection. The KN-COPP-B-LPM also includes a slide-out battery door that provides immediate access to the power source as well as a battery safeguard that makes it difficult to close the cover without batteries installed. An LED lighting system on the unit signals power levels and sourcing: the green LED will flash once every 30 seconds to indicate the alarm is operating properly when power is present, and the red LED will pulse to indicate carbon monoxide has been detected until the device is reset or the CO threat is eliminated. This device has an expected 7-year lifespan and comes equipped with a five-year manufacturer’s limited warranty. The new Kidde KN-COPP-B-LPM carbon monoxide alarm is the only battery-operated alarm that includes a backlight digital display feature. This key feature adds an advanced level of protection that you have come to expect in a Kidde manufactured product. The battery operated CO alarm includes multiple mounting options, allowing installation on a wall or tabletop. This alarm has been carefully designed and tested to detect CO concentration in a residential environment. It provides continuous monitoring of CO levels, even during power outages when many CO incidents occur. The backlit digital display feature allows for easy viewing of carbon monoxide levels from 30-999 PPM (parts per million). The KN-COPP-B-LPM will also detect and store concentration CO levels as low as 11 and up to 999 PPM with its peak level memory display. This alarm includes a snap-on cover that gives immediate access to the batteries and a safety feature that makes it difficult to close the cover without the batteries being installed. Updates digital reading every 15 seconds, allowing you to see if levels change. The backlit display helps to see the displayed reading in the dark, and the backlight appears during the peak level cycle. The light will also turn on when the peak level button is pressed. The peak level memory displays the highest CO concentration measured since the last reset. The test/reset button tests CO alarm circuit operation and allows you to immediately silence the alarm. A low battery signal alerts users when the batteries need to be replaced. Includes informative LEDs: green LED for normal operation, red LED for alarm. The alarm alerts user to replace CO alarm after 7 years of operation.
