Provides protection from two hazards – fire and CO – in one unit with Photoelectric sensor.
Smoke alarms are powered by battery or by your home's electrical system. If the smoke alarm is powered by battery, it runs on either a disposable 9-volt battery or a non-replaceable 10-year sealed lithium battery. Alarms that receive their power from your home's electrical system (hardwired alarms) usually have a back-up battery that will need to be replaced once or twice a year.
There are two types of sensing technology available. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible particles (associated with smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. Kidde strongly recommends that both ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms be installed to help insure maximum detection of the various types of fire that can occur within the home.
There are many special features that can help protect you and your home, or make your safety products easier to maintain and operate. Many of these features are not well known by their name, so to learn more about specific features of a model, select it and view its detail page.
The Kidde Front-Loading Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm (part # 21007624) offers protection from two hazards – fire and CO – in one unit. Sold under the FireX brand, this AC-wire with battery backup alarm emits a beeping tone followed by a voice warning that clearly announces the danger by saying, “Fire! Fire!” or “Warning! Carbon Monoxide!”. The uniquely designed frontloading battery compartment makes battery replacement quick and easy, and ensures proper installation. Manufactured with photoelectric sensors for detecting smoke and fire, this alarm also includes the world’s most accurate CO sensing technology based on claims by major manufacturers.
The red LED will flash and be accompanied by three long alarm beeps followed by a verbal warning message “FIRE! FIRE!”. The alarm will repeat pattern until unit is reset or smoke is eliminated.
Four short alarm beeps followed by a verbal warning “WARNING! CARBON MONOXIDE!” This continues until the unit is reset or the CO is eliminated.
One chirp followed by warning “LOW BATTERY”. The red LED light will flash. This pattern will continue every minute for the first hour. After the first hour the red LED light will flash once every minute accompanied by the chirp sound. The “LOW BATTERY” warning will only sound once every fifteen minutes.
“HUSH ACTIVATED” and “HUSH CANCELLED” voice announcement
The green LED will blink once every 16 seconds to alert a user when the unit has alarmed for smoke or has detected a concentration of CO. If the alarm has detected a CO level of 100ppm or greater, when the Test/Reset button is pressed the unit will announce “CO PREVIOUSLY DETECTED”. If the alarm has detected abnormal levels of smoke since its last test, it will produce three rapid beeps.
Part Number (Ordering Number): 900-0213
The combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarm shall be Kidde Unit Number KN-COPE-I (part number 900-0213) or approved equal. It shall be powered by 120VAC, 60Hz source with a 9V battery backup. The temperature operating range shall be between 40°F and 100°F (4°C and 38°C) and the humidity operating range shall be 5% - 85% relative humidity. The unit shall incorporate a photoelectric smoke sensor with nominal sensitivity of 2.05%/ft. The CO sensor shall be of a fuel cell design and shall meet the sensitivity requirements of Underwriters Laboratories UL2034 Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Detectors. The unit shall qualify for UL-approved wording on the package: “World’s Most Accurate Carbon Monoxide Alarm”*. The combination alarm can be installed on the surface of any wall or ceiling following the UL/NFPA/Manufacturer’s recommended placement guidelines. The alarm can be installed on any standard single gang electrical box, up to a 4”octagon junction box. The electrical connection (to the alarm) shall be made with a plug-in connector. The unit shall provide optional tamper resistance that deters removal of the unit from the wall or ceiling. No additional pieces shall be required to activate this feature. A maximum of 24 Kidde devices can be interconnected in a multiple station arrangement. The interconnect system must not exceed the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) limit of 18 initiating devices, of which 12 can be smoke alarms. With 18 initiating devices (smoke, heat, CO, etc), interconnected, it is still possible to interconnect 6 strobe lights and or relay modules. The alarm shall include a test button that will electronically simulate the presence of smoke and CO and cause the unit to go into both modes of alarm. This sequence tests the unit’s electronics to ensure proper operation. The CO sensor will not alarm to levels of CO below 30 ppm and will alarm in the following time range when exposed to the corresponding levels of CO. 70 ppm CO Concentration 60 – 240 minutes 150 ppm CO Concentration 10 – 50 minutes 400 ppm CO Concentration 4 – 15 minutes The combination alarm shall have two methods of warning for danger: a piezoelectric horn that is rated at 85 decibels at 10 feet and a voice warning that identifies the danger. For a CO incident, the horn will sound in the repetitive manner – four (4) fast beeps, a short pause, four (4) fast beeps, a short pause. In between, the unit will announce “Warning Carbon Monoxide!” In a Smoke incident, the horn will sound in the repetitive manner – three (3) beeps, a pause, three (3) beeps, a pause. In between, the unit will announce “Fire! Fire!” The unit shall incorporate 2 LED’s. A green LED will be steady on when AC power is present, flash every 30 seconds when in thebattery only mode, every 16 seconds to indicate alarm memory, and every 2 seconds to indicate the Hush“ mode is active. A red LED will flash in unison with the sounder pattern. The unit shall include the Smart Hush™ feature that silences the unit for approximately 8 minutes if a nuisance alarm condition occurs. The Green LED on the alarm will flash every 2 seconds while in Smart Hush™ and will automatically reset itself. It also provides voice annunciation of “Hush Activated” when Smart Hush™ is activated and “Hush Cancelled” when the Hush cycle ends. The unit shall also indicate a low battery warning utilizing each of the following methods: a brief alarm chirp, the voice announcement of “Low Battery!” The unit shall at a minimum meet the requirements of UL 2034, UL217, NFPA72, (chapter 11 2002 edition) The State of California Fire Marshall, NFPA101 (One and two family dwellings) Federal Housing Authority (FHA), Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It shall also include a 10-year manufacturer’s limited warranty. *Claim approved by UL, based on manufacturer’s reported testing.
The combination alarm should be installed to comply with all local codes having jurisdiction in your area, Article 760 of the National Electric Code, and NFPA 72. Make certain all alarms are wired to a single, continuous (non-switched) power line, which is not protected by a ground fault interrupter. A maximum of 1000 ft. of wire can be used in the interconnect system. Use standard UL listed household wire (18 gauge or larger as required by local codes).
