The carbon monoxide detector is approved for certified nonpressurized aircraft and is also available for installation in experimental aircraft, said Ketchum, Idaho-based Aithre in a news release.
Output of the unit, including data and history, downloads to the free Aithre Connect app for iPhone and the WatchOS, “providing real-time health monitoring, alerts, notifications as well as customization,” the company said.
The Aithre Shield eDot 5.0 weighs 1.1 ounces, has a height of 0.67 inches, and has a wired panel-mounted indicator with intuitive corresponding light levels.
The CO detector is unaffected by pressure and altitude changes, and the CO sensor response is under 30 seconds between 0 and 225 parts per million, with 1-ppm resolution. The sensor requires no recalibration for 10 years under normal operating conditions, according to the company.
An internal temperature adjustment circuit compensates for temperature-induced CO reading errors in the CO sensor between minus 10 degrees Celsius and 50 degrees C.
The Aithre Shield eDot 5.0 lists for $450, and can be purchased on the Aithre website or from retailers or avionics installers.
