Abstract:
The New York City Building Department took delivery of 100 Pocket CO monitors to be used by emergency responders and inspectors. These wearable units alarm at high CO levels, and can accurately measure low parts per million levels of carbon monoxide, and determine time weighted average exposures. By using nanotechnology, the full function Pocket CO instrument is small enough to fit on a key chain. Pocket CO is manufactured in California by KWJ Engineering Inc.

NYC Building Department Protects People From Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Using Wearable Pocket CO Monitors

Newark, CA | Posted on October 3rd, 2007

Transducer Technology Division of KWJ Engineering Inc., a world leader in ultra low power sensor and instrument development, announced today the delivery of 100 Pocket CO instruments to New York City Building Department for use by emergency responders and inspectors. In response to a recent steam tunnel event, the Pocket CO was selected to provide Department personnel low parts per million carbon monoxide detection and monitoring of carbon monoxide gas.

"These highly portable, full function instruments are not the typical throwaway offerings associated with the Pocket CO price point," states Oliver Seth, Director of Sales. "Utilizing proprietary miniature low power electrochemical sensors, the Pocket CO will provide NY Building Department responders with years of functionality and state of the art instrumentation. When clipped to uniforms, hard hats, or respirators, the Pocket CO monitors CO gas in real time parts per million (ppm) readouts on an easy to read display, providing dosimetry functions such as Time Weighted Average (TWA)for extended exposure periods, Total Exposure (TE), and MAXimum gas exposure levels. All this is packaged in a palm size key-fob weighing less than one ounce. Three alarm points using high decibel buzzer and bright flashing LED are standard in either 5 minute inspection or 8 hour full dosimetry mode."
