The Fieldpiece SCM3 Carbon Monoxide Detector is a standalone carbon monoxide detector (CO detector) with a very fast reaction time. The Fieldpiece SCM3's electrochemical sensor is specific to carbon monoxide (CO). The Fieldpiece SCM-3 is a rugged instrument can help you hunt down sources of potentially life-threatening, poisonous gas. Carbon monoxide (CO), a product of combustion, is an odorless, colorless gas.

Faulty combustion equipment is one source of this dangerous gas known as the "silent killer". The Fieldpiece SCM3 standalone carbon monoxide detector measures CO in parts per million (ppm). Use it for walk-around tests to help pinpoint sources of CO indoors. Measure CO ppm in flue gas using the optional Fieldpiece AOXP2 pump.
