How fast does the sensor work?
CONCENTRATION REACTION TIME
600 ppm (.060%) 1-2 minutes
400 ppm (.040%) 2-4 minutes
200 ppm (.020%) 4-15 minutes
100 ppm (.010%) 15-30 minutes
50 ppm (.005%) 30-45 minutes
Note: Reaction time is slightly faster when damp, and slightly slower when dry.
Caution: The sensor button will be damaged by halogens, ammoniac and nitrous gases. Keep away from cleaners, solvents and other contaminants. Harsh direct sunlight will bleach out sensor button and shorten useful life.
