The FCC‑380 Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detector (Macurco CM-E1) detects CO concentrations in the air at or below the UL 2034 sensitivity limits for CO exposure and before symptoms of CO exposure appear. It alerts personnel to possible exposure through audible and visual alarms. Install the detector in rooms adjacent to areas where CO concentrations are expected (garages or furnace rooms). Prime application locations include work areas or bedrooms.
Note: Do not install the detector in areas where CO concentrations are expected (garages or furnace rooms). The detector is not designed to detect smoke, fire, heat, or other gases (combustible or non-combustible).
The FCC‑380’s three-color visual LED display indicates status and contamination level. A green display indicates the detector is operating normally. An amber display indicates a system trouble. A red display indicates dangerous CO levels.
Alarm System Operation
The FCC‑380 can function as part of an alarm system and connects to an alarm control panel through either a normally-open or normally-closed initiating circuit. If the carbon monoxide detector is connected to an alarm control panel, the control panel must provide an alarm for CO that is distinct from alarms for fire or intrusion.
Stand-Alone Alarm Operation
The FCC‑380 can function as a stand-alone device using its internal alarm (repeated loud tone bursts during alarm and chirps if sensor trouble is found). Stand-alone operation was not evaluated by Underwriters Laboratories.
The carbon monoxide detector is compatible with all UL Listed control panels that have 12 VDC to 24 VDC power and alarm initiating circuits. The detector can also be used with a UL Listed Class 2 power supply.
Mount the detector 4 ft to 5 ft (1.2 m to 1.5 m) above the floor. It can be surface mounted or flush‑mounted on a 2‑inch (5.1 cm) by 4‑inch (10.2 cm) single-gang switch box with a minimum depth of 1.5‑inch (3.8 cm). Space the detectors at 30 ft (9 m) separation and do not place detectors in corners or within 5 ft (1.5 m) of a cooking appliance.
