CO Alarm

In daily life, coal, charcoal, and liquefied petroleum gas will produce carbon dioxide after combustion, and carbon dioxide will be reduced to CO in a poorly ventilated environment. CO is a suffocating poison gas, which is colorless, odorless, and non-irritating. If CO leaks, it cannot be discerned by the eye or nose. As we all know, poor ventilation during combustion can lead to a decrease in oxygen content, resulting in incomplete combustion and increased CO production. When the concentration of CO in the room continues to increase, people will gradually feel headache, nausea, difficulty breathing, collapse, dizziness.

The main causes of CO poisoning include:

  • Improper use of gas water heaters
  • Poor ventilation of coal stove heating
  • Gas pipeline leaks
  • Sleep with the air conditioner in the car

Solutions for CO Alarm

An effective way to prevent CO poisoning is to install a CO alarm. CO alarm provides advance warning if there is a leak before the threshold is reached. The core component of the CO alarm is the CO sensor. Therefore, it is also very important to choose a sensor that can effectively detect CO.

Winshen Technology currently develops and produces a variety of CO sensor series products, which can meet different level of CO alarms, including: MQ series, MP series, ME2 series, CO series modules, ME3 series, ME4 series, and GST series CO sensor packaging solution.
