Carbon Monoxide DetectionThe CM-E1 is a low voltage detector of Carbon Monoxide (CO). The CM–E1 is designed for connection to UL Listed Fire Alarm/Burglary Control Panels. Alarm control panels that work on 12 or 24 VDC can provide battery backup to the CM-E1 detectors. This carbon monoxide detector is designed to detect CO gas from ANY source of combustion. It is NOT designed to detect smoke, fire or any other gas.
InstallationWith the CM-E1 faceplate mounted on the enclosure's rear-housing the unit can be surface mounted on a wall. A thin mid-plate enclosure component is also supplied with the CM-E1 to mount the CM-E1 on a 2 x 4 inch (5.08cm x 10.16 cm) switch box - single-gang or "handy", provided by the installer.
LocationThere are two usual sources of CO - defective heat sources (furnaces or wood burning stoves) and automobiles running in adjoining garages. The CM-E1 can detect CO from these sources, as well as any other sources of CO. For best operation, mount a CM-E1 in the hallway near each bedroom or office area. In addition, another CM-E1 may be mounted just inside the door from the adjoining garage. Consider placing another detector in a bedroom or office that is adjacent to a furnace room. The detector may be installed on either a ceiling or a wall. If installed on a peaked, gabled, or sloped ceiling, it should be located about 3 feet (1 meter) from the highest point. The unit can be placed vertically or horizontally on a wall, so the information on the front of the CM-E1 can be read in a normal manner (not upside down). Do NOT mount the CM-E1 in a corner. Use the same spacing as for smoke detectors - 30 foot (9 meters) centers, 900 sq. feet (84 sq. meters) per detector.
