Carbon monoxide (CO) is generated whenever combustion occurs, including the operation of gas engines, as well as heating and cooking appliances. It's invisible, odorless, tasteless and deadly. Faulty venting or even a wind shift can create a dangerous situation, especially in confined areas like boat cabins. Typical symptoms of CO exposure can be mistaken for the flu or seasickness, making accurate onboard CO detection a necessity. The CO Sentinel Carbon Monoxide Detector is a good choice for smaller craft with an open design or for when generator shutdown and remote location detection is not required. The CO Sentinel uses a microprocessor to measure CO levels. The time-weighted average CO measurement process constantly monitors all CO levels, eliminating most false alarms. The circuit is coated on both sides for added protection in the harsh marine environment.

Comments about Fireboy-xintex CO Sentinel Carbon Monoxide Detector:

I'm finding West Marine stores to have very restricted inventory of simple things like chain etc. And the prices are trending way up to the point I'm not sure I want to spend money at West Marine in the future - For example the same 5 foot stretch of chain was available elsewhere for 1/10th the price that West marine charges.

Easy install but WOW that LED is bright!

    Comments about Fireboy-xintex CO Sentinel Carbon Monoxide Detector:

    It's a detector. It works. Replaced an expired one. Unfortunately, the mounting holes didn't line up and this one is smaller. So now I have visible holes in my cabinet wall. That wall faces my Vberth. So the green "I'm alive" LED shines in your face all night. It's too bright (how about a slightly larger value resistor there Fireboy?) and makes it hard to sleep. And I'm a solid sleeper! Thank goodness for electrical tape! But, like I said: it works. And an easy install. You need some crimp butt connectors for 18AWG wire and a heat gun or hair dryer to finish the shrink wrapping. 4 stars.

      Just replaced one after five years. Last one I replaced was six years old. A must for cabins in a power boat.

      • On A Boat

      Comments about Fireboy-xintex CO Sentinel Carbon Monoxide Detector:

      I purchased a Fireboy/Xintex CO detector about 18 months ago. I installed it in my boat. It recently began to produce false alarms. I sent it to Xintex and they told me it was "expired" .....apparently they have a five year battery powered countdown timer installed at the factory and even if they sit in a warehouse or on a shelf the timer is still running. If you buy one be sure to open it in the store and check the manufacture date.

          Comments about Fireboy-xintex CO Sentinel Carbon Monoxide Detector:

          These are the most asthetically pleasing of the few choices when purchasing a carbon monoxide detector. The look flows with the rest of the electronics on the boat. I have three mounted throughout my boat - on on the helm, and one in each living quarters.

              I only gave it 4 stars for now. If it works and saves me and my family during CO problem later, then I'll be alive and have the opportunity to give it 5 stars, right?
