How are carbon monoxide detectors classified?

Carbon monoxide alarms are an important part of a home safety plan. In the United States, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSP) recommends that every home has at least one carbon monoxide alarm.

Carbon monoxide is an invisible, colorless, odorless, and non-irritating gas that cannot be felt with the five senses. This is why it is important to install a carbon monoxide alarm. So, do you know what the categories of carbon monoxide alarms are? If not, please take the time to read the following from start to finish and I will take you through the knowledge.

  • Classification by direction of use

  • Classification by the sensor used

  • Classification by function

  • Classification by networking method

Classification by direction of use

There are two types of carbon monoxide alarms, industrial and domestic. Industrial carbon monoxide alarms are expensive and require very high accuracy, minimal temperature, and zero drift and some special occasions often require the use of explosion-proof enclosures. Industrial carbon monoxide alarms must use electrochemical sensors. Carbon monoxide alarms for domestic use are mainly used in ordinary homes, small entertainment venues as well as small factories, and small chemical laboratories. They are relatively small in profile and relatively inexpensive.

Classification by the sensor used

There are two types of carbon monoxide alarm sensors commonly used: electrochemical sensors and semiconductor sensors. Electrochemical sensors have a high degree of accuracy and stability and are therefore relatively expensive. Electrochemical sensors have a low power consumption and are made into alarms that can be powered by batteries. Semiconductor sensors have a higher power consumption and are usually not powered by batteries.

Classification by function

Carbon monoxide alarms can be classified as either with or without a control output. A carbon monoxide alarm with control output outputs an audible and visual alarm signal as well as a switch signal, usually a pair of normally open contacts or a pair of normally closed contacts, which can be used to drive an exhaust fan or force open a window, etc. Those without control output are those that only output an audible and visual alarm signal, with no other signal output.

Classification by networking method

Classified by whether it is connected to the alarm host, it can be divided into two types: stand-alone and networked. Stand-alone type means that the carbon monoxide alarm can complete independent detection and alarm functions without being connected to the host computer. Networked type means to complete the complete detection and alarm function together with the alarm host, usually by the alarm completing the detection function and transmitting the alarm signal to the alarm host, who will complete the response arrangement to the alarm function.

There are two types of networking: wired networking and wireless networking. The wired networking type is connected to the host through a signal line, wireless networking type is connected to the alarm host through a wireless signal, usually installed in the carbon monoxide alarm a wireless module to achieve this function.
