Chauvin Arnoux CA895 Carbon Monoxide Detector
In a compact casing protected by a shockproof sheath, the Physics Line C.A 895 CO-gas detector detects and measures carbon monoxide.
It has 2 measurement modes “normal” for detection of a source of CO and an “average” for precise measurement.
It incorporates an audible beeping sound upon detection, a similar principle to that found on a Geiger-counter.

A closer look at Carbon Monoxide (CO).
- Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless and toxic gas produced by the incomplete combustion of carbonaceous materials: coal, paper, gasoline, diesel oil, gas, wood, etc.
- Lighter than air, it rapidly diffuses in the atmosphere leaving no way to detect it, which gives it its dangerous character.
Many sources of carbon monoxide can be found in the home:
Fuel fired furnaces and gas water heaters, chimneys;
Cigarette smoking: each smoked cigarette emits 50 mg of CO
To avoid dangerous levels of CO, it is important to maintain all combustion appliances in good working order: charcoal heaters, gas heaters, wood stoves, hot water heaters, gas stoves, open chimneys; schedule chimney-sweeping and flare conduit cleaning at least once a year. One must assure that there is adequate ventilation in rooms containing combustion insttallations (kitchen, garage, bathroom) and especially avoid blocking or crushing ventilation apertures.
CO concentration / human danger scale
|De 0 to 1 ppm||normal level of CO in the air|
|9 ppm||maximum level in a room with no harm to health|
|50 ppm||maximum level bearable for continuous exposure during 8 hours|
|200 ppm||mild headache, nausea, dizziness|
|400 ppm||serious headache, life threatening after 3 hours|
|800 ppm||death after 2 hours|
|1,600 ppm||nausea in 20 minutes, death after 1 hour|
|12,800 ppm||death within 1 to 3 minutes|
