Fuel Cell Technology: The new electrochemical sensor contains a proton conducting membrane which generates a current in the presence of Carbon Monoxide (CO). This current is measured; information is processed and then displayed on the Alarm. The sensor is more accurate, uses less current and is less sensitive to humidity and other gases than competitive models. This technology was developed and patented by Atwood Mobile Products.
Battery Operated: The Atwood CO Gas Alarm uses three AA batteries. The easy opening cover gives fast access to the batteries.
Safety Feature: The Atwood CO Gas Alarm cover is designed with a safety feature that makes it difficult to close the cover without batteries in the unit. This helps to prevent the alarm from being mounted without power.
