Carbon Monoxide Monitor Made for the Cockpit Gets Updated

TOCSIN 4 includes three alarm modes

Carbon monoxide is a serious threat to general aviation pilots, but regular household monitors don’t make the cut. The TOCSIN 4 Cockpit Monitor is an advanced single gas detector specifically designed for the cockpit. It combines a rugged impact-, dust-, and water-resistant (IP67) design with advanced sensor resolution and customizable options. Advanced micro-processing capability allows for quick unit configuration adjustments, and the large back-lit display shows ambient air CO levels in parts-per-million (ppm) from 0 to 2,000 ppm.

“This compact CO detector alerts the pilot to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in the cabin with a choice of three alarm modes: flashing lights, vibration and a 90 dB Piezo horn,” says Sporty’s President John Zimmerman. “Unlike hardware store models, you can be sure you’ll notice if something has gone wrong.”

A data logging feature can be used to generate time weighted average and short-term exposure limit reports. The TOCSIN 4 has a built-in alligator clip with 360-degree rotation for mounting to a seatbelt. 3M™ Dual Lock™ attachment tape suitable for high-temperature cockpits is also provided. The unit uses two AAA alkaline batteries (included) which last up to 9,000 hours. The sensor is highly accurate and will last for approximately two years and is replaceable by the factory.

The TOCSIN 4 Carbon Monoxide Cockpit Monitor [6049A] is available for $189.95 and may be ordered at or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS.
