The CO Guardian 452-101-012 panel mounted Carbon Monoxide (CO) detector is designed especially for the Dynon SkyView line of certified aircraft displays. A compact and lightweight unit meant to use as little panel space as possible, the 452-101-012 combines highly accurate CO detection for the cockpit and the ability to display on an external Dynon unit. This CO detection unit is perfect for builders and pilots looking for protection from the dangers of carbon monoxide in their certified aircraft.
The 452-101-012 is specifically designed to integrate with and report on the Dynon SkyView line of PFD and MFD displays for certified aircraft. Both alerts and CO levels can be displayed.
The sensitive onboard CO sensor alarms when carbon monoxide levels measure greater than 50 parts-per-million (PPM). A loud 85db aural warning will sound and an amber warning LED will flash when CO measures 50 to 99 PPM over a 3-5 minute span. An aural warning and a red LED flashing warning will trigger when levels climb above 99 PPM immediately when detected.
The built-in pressure sensor indicates altitude warnings at 10,000 feet, 12,500 feet, and 14,000 feet as a reminder to the pilot that supplemental oxygen should be used. These warnings are displayed on an optional annunciator light.
The compact and lightweight CO Guardian 452-101-012 will fit into a small 2.25 in by 1.5 in instrument position and weighs only 3.5 oz. Installation is very simple and takes only 2-4 hours on average. The 452-101-012 accommodates a connection to an external annunciator light (sold separately) to add an additional level of safety when the unit is out of view.
How It Displays on Dynon SkyView
The 452-101-012 can display either Carbon Monoxide levels (in Parts Per Million) on the display or a simple icon (green dot for 'clear') in the lower right side of the display.
