Very much the same results as Leldon's.

Same here. 0 or up to 2 in flight most of the time. Under 10 on the ground if in one place and the wind is just right. Taxied in a stiff tailwind one day and the thing alarmed on me.

I've played with the FW cutoff knob and with it OUT, I get a 1 or 2. With it IN, I get a 0. I suspect when it is OUT, the interior pressure is lower than when it is IN; therefore a tiny bit of exhaust is being drawn in.

I've seen 2-4 in my house! Really bothered me for a while, but we have a gas cooktop, so I'm assuming the residual CO is from that.

Often see 0 in the airplane.

Great thread Dan. Thanks for sharing. Just ordered mine.

First of all, the sensor has some error and could easily read in the 1-3 ppm range without any CO present. Second, there is some small amount of CO in almost any home that uses combustion for heating of the air, water, or food. There's a reason the Home Depot CO monitors won't display readings that low and have a fairly high alarm threshold.

Which is the same reason that such home-type monitors may not be suitable for aviation use.

I suspect this has been covered in this thread, but I hope somebody will can save me from having to read 11 pages of posts...

Is "intrinsically safe" something that is necessary for aviation use?

No. If you are going to keep this on the cockpit to monitor CO levels you don’t need the IS version.

IS is for when it needs to live and operate in an environment of explosive gasses and/or dust.

Dunno if the previous discount is still in effect. In any event, here's another one good through 11/28/17.
