LED Indicator Description When meter is powered on the LED is illuminated orange 6
In normal mode with meter ON, LED is not illuminated Each time a reading is stored in memory the LED flashes green and the audible beeper sounds When the alarm is tripped the LED flashes red and the audible beeper sounds 3 CO50‐en‐GB_V1.2 12/14 EXTECH INSTRUMENTS Operation POWER THE METER Plug the AC adaptor into meter and receptacle to turn on the meter. Reset the date and time each time the meter power is cycled. Remove the adaptor or switch off the AC power source to shut down the meter. GETTING STARTED All LCD display lines will switch ON when power is applied to meter. The LED indicator will also be ON steady with an orange color. The display will now auto zero. Auto zero takes approximately 60 seconds and then the meter counts down from 9 to 0. The meter is now in the normal operating mode. When attempting to manually store the current CO reading, the LED light turns green for one second and a short beeper tone will sound. The LCDs show the current CO value in ppm (top), ambient temperature/relative humidity (middle), and the date and time (bottom). Toggle the temperature units by pressing and holding the C/F/%RH▲ button. SETTING DATE/TIME In normal operation, the meter alternates the date and time displays. Press the SET button to switch between the 12‐hour system (am/pm) and the 24‐hour system. Note that the default time display is a 24‐

6 CO50‐en‐GB_V1.2 12/14 EXTECH INSTRUMENTS MANUALLY STORE/RECALL 99 CO READINGS The CO50 can manually store a CO reading with a press of the SEL/RECALL button. The LCD shows the current record number (01‐99) in the humidity reading area each time a reading is manually stored (a short beep will sound each time a reading is stored also). To recall stored readings, press and hold the SEL/RECALL Button, the LCD shows the number of the record with its CO reading, to scroll other stored readings use the ▲ and ▼ buttons. To clear stored data: Access the Recall mode and press and hold the SET button until “Clr “appears on LCD. The LCD automatically returns to normal mode. The illustration below on the left shows a manually recorded reading (reading number ‘05’ in this case); the middle illustration shows the recalled reading; the illustration on the right shows readings cleared.

Reading Cleared CO CALIBRATION It is recommended that the meter be calibrated monthly in a clean air environment. From the normal measurement mode, press and hold the MODE▼ button for at least 6 seconds to enter calibration mode. The LCD shows CAL and a number representing the time remaining in the calibration (15 seconds). The meter returns to the normal measurement mode automatically when calibration is complete. Warning: Ensure that no CO concentration is present while calibrating. 7 CO50‐en‐GB_V1.2 12/14 EXTECH INSTRUMENTS Specifications Measurements CO (ppm), Temperature oF/ oC , and RH% CO measurement range 000 to 999ppm CO resolution 1ppm CO accuracy ± 5% of reading or ±10ppm CO Sensor Electrochemical type Alarm alert Red LED and audible beeper > 85dB (3m distance) Temperature range ‐10 to 60oC (14 to 140oF) Temperature resolution 0.1oC/oF Temperature Accuracy ±0.6oC (1.2oF) RH range 10 to 90% RH RH Resolution 0.1% RH RH Accuracy ±5% RH (at 25oC) otherwise ±7% Memory capacity 99 data points Power AC adaptor Dimensions 155 x 87 x 81 mm (6.1 x 3.4 x 3.2”) Weight 165g (5.8oz.)
