World’s Most Portable Carbon Monoxide Detector Released by KWJ Engineering

KWJ Engineering introduces the third generation of its popular Pocket CO, the Model 300, a portable monitor to protect against the silent killer, Carbon Monoxide. This key fob sized carbon monoxide detector with digital readout weighs under one ounce, making it the most portable protection available from dangerous low and high levels of CO. Pocket CO is ideal for professionals and recreational users alike, including pilots, boaters, truckers, campers, building inspectors, firefighters and first responders. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that sends tens of thousands to the emergency room and causes an untold number of fatalities each year.

Newark, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008 -- The latest generation portable carbon monoxide detector has just been released by KWJ Engineering. The new Pocket CO Model 300 is a key-fob sized carbon monoxide detector weighing less than one ounce. The nanotechnology-enabled instrument protects from low-level and high-level exposure to CO, and gives Time Weighted Average, Maximum, and Total Exposure readings. Carbon Monoxide, the silent killer, is a colorless, odorless toxic gas found in everyday environments that causes nearly 40,000 emergency room visits and an untold number of deaths every year. Many people assume they are protected by inexpensive wall-mounted detectors, which are often ineffective and do not protect against small but harmful concentrations of carbon monoxide.

"The small size and affordability of the Pocket CO finally gives consumers the ability to protect themselves from CO wherever they are," says company President Dr. Joseph Stetter. "It's easy enough for the average person to use, while delivering the accuracy and durability of an industrial strength monitor."

Pocket CO is already used worldwide by pilots, boaters, truckers, campers, divers (SCUBA) and many others for personal and family protection. Pocket CO is also ideal for commercial users including building inspectors, firefighters, police, and other first responders. Pocket CO runs on an easily replaceable ordinary watch battery, and provides durable, low maintenance, portable carbon monoxide detection.

KWJ Engineering has been an industry leading provider of cutting edge sensor and instrument solutions for gas detection needs since 1993. Founded by Ken Johnson, an industry pioneer for over 60 years, and headed by Dr. Joseph Stetter, a world recognized sensor expert, KWJ Engineering offers products that meet most any industrial or consumer application. The Pocket CO Model 300 is the third generation of this popular carbon monoxide detector, and bridges the gap between industrial users and every-day consumers.
