Q: Does this detector have to be re-calibrated occassionally? If so, how often, what's the procedure and how much does it cost? Regarding Part No. 12-01895
Per the manufacturer, they do not calibrate this instrument. They said it is not needed. Customer can calibrate if they want, but it is not necessary.
Q: Please explain the auto off feature on this Digital CO Detector. If I want to monitor CO levels in the cockpit, what keeps it from turning itself off?
Per the supplier: The Automatic Power Off is a built in feature and unfortunately it cannot be manually turned off. Our CO detector is not meant to be used as a monitor. In order to be used as a monitor, the unit needs to have consistent power supply. When power supply level drops, the value being detected will no longer be accurate. Our CO detector is designed as a handheld device and is operated by a battery, not a consistent AC power. Therefore we need to build in this APO to preserve battery life and ensure accurate readings.
