The Quantum Eye® is a multi-level Carbon Monoxide Detector. It provides a visual indication of carbon monoxide contamination. Each detector is packaged in a protective bag that when opened activates the product. Operating temperature range is from 41° to 100° F, relative humidity (RH) range from 25 to 90% RH. For airplane and campground use
Prior to opening factory sealed poly sleeve package, when stored properly product may have approximate shelf-life of 3yrs
I have used these in my piston aircraft for years. Change them every 18 months as specified.
Every plane should have one of these, having one in the plane is just one more thing you donâ€™t have to worry about or take a chance on forgetting to watch out for. Much needed for safety and peace of mind.
Bought a new one to replace the old one. I took the old one and held it to the back of my trucks exhaust and it immediately went dark blue and slowly turned back to normal after a little time. Clearly it works even after 2 years. Will buy a third one in 18 more months.
Havenâ€™t used product yet, arrived as advertised. Great customer service.
A necessary item for safety.

Two words - these work! I have been using these Quantum Eye detectors since 2011 in my 64 C172E. On one winter flight I noticed the carbon monoxide detector had changed from its normal yellow ... to dark blue (I still have the image). I had never seen this before, but it was also the first time in quite awhile flying with all vents closed as it was pretty cool outside. I immediately opened both fresh air vents in the wing roots as well as the floor vent (and was prepared to open the window if needed). After a few moments the color of the detector returned to normal as the cabin was flushed with clean air. This lead us to an exhaust leak that was repaired. There was no odor or visible signs of exhaust / smoke in the cabin. Even though I had this detector in place, including it in the scan was more of an afterthought. I now replace every annual and include as part of my panel scan.
The quantum eye CO detector works better than most others. Over the years, I have had color change warnings twice and both times there was a small exhaust leak in the engine compartment.
As long as the plastic is sealed and it has not been opened the shelf life is up to 3 years. Once the packaging is opened it will have an 18 month life span.
No, it is one time use product.
Per manufacturer: The sensor of the Quantum Eye will start to change color if it is exposed to 50 ppm for more that 240 minutes. This can be considered as the minimum rating of the sensor. As for the maximum, it is not recommended to expose the Quantum Eye to CO concentration higher than 3000 ppm or the sensor will fail to return to its normal color which means that it is permanently damaged.
