Ideal for pilots

The TOCSIN 3 Cockpit Monitor is an advanced single gas detector specifically designed for the cockpit. Most home CO detectors don't alert pilots to dangerous levels of CO soon enough, and even if they do the alarm is far too quiet to hear over a noisy engine. This model solves both problems - it combines a rugged design and reliability with advanced sensor resolution, plus three different alert modes (red flashing lights, vibrating, and a loud audio alarm). Advanced micro-processing capabilities allow for quick unit configuration adjustments. Large backlit screen displays CO level in parts per million (ppm).

Features:

  • Alerts the pilot to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in the cabin
  • Three alarm modes: flashing lights, vibration, and 90 dB Piezo horn
  • Alarm points pre-set at 35 and 100 parts-per-million (PPM)
  • Customizable alarm points
  • Display always shows ambient air Carbon Monoxide levels in PPM
  • Kit includes 3M™ Dual Lock™ attachment tape suitable for high-temperature cockpits
  • Sensor detects from 0-500 ppm.

This unit features a highly accurate sensor. Sensor will last for approximately 2 years and it is replaceable by the factory. Uses a CR15H270 Industrial Lithium CR2 battery (included).

I fly multiple aircraft regularly. Having an accurate CO detector in my flight bag is great insurance. I love that this has a digital readout in ppm, light, noise and vibrating alarms to grab my attention in an emergency.

Easy to use, sturdy clip, loud enough to get your attention.
Product was as described and is easy to use—turn it on, turn it off. The clip on the back is very secure—I opted to clip it to my shoulder harness near the center of my chest. It has not alarmed in flight. To make sure I would hear the tone, I turned the unit on during runup, and it was noticeable with active ANR.

Your Life Could Depend on It
I bought this for my old Archer right after the engine was replaced to make sure the odors in the cabin were just from the off-gassing finishes on the reworked heater box, and not from some loose or leaking hardware. If you never leave the pattern or only fly during the warmer months with the outside-air vents wide open, this would probably be unnecessary. But I fly year around and often depend upon heat from the exhaust manifold to stay warm. The heat in these old birds is pretty good. But if it leaks into your cabin, you could be dead before you think to roll down the window (or remember that’s not an option).

Does what it says
This is a rugged little unit which works as advertised. Feels much more industrial than the picture makes it out to be. Very sensitive but I haven’t had any false alarms. Loud enough to be heard in the cockpit. Small enough to be out of the way. I wish it had a way to set an auto turn off timer.

I received an alert today from the dectector.
I clip the detector to my shoulder belt and, today, I got an alert. The level was 35 ppm and rising. I heard the beeping and saw the level then immediately ventilated the cabin. I was able to reduce the level to normal and continue my flight. I don't yet know what caused the level to rise but without the detector, I might not have known it was up.

Works great--all the features I wanted
Ok, there are some other ones out there that cost less, but nothing with the features this had. One didn't vibrate, another no clip (and this one has a strong clip...think clip on suspenders). I can hear this in a Cherokee 180 at run-up with Bose ANR on. (Tail wind gave us 35 ppm for a few moments). Great "insurance." You will have to send it in after 2 years for calibration and tune up.

a necessary device, only once in the past did the warning light up and that time it was true. This is my second device that I buy, the previous one was damaged by a blow.

TOCSIN 3
The unit was received well packaged and easy to set up. I put this in service Jan 2019 mounting it on the instrument panel with the supplied hook and loop fastener in full view. It seems to be very responsive providing measurements trailing other aircraft in taxi and during slow climbs. With my ANR headset on and the engine running the audio alarm during boot up is faint, but acceptable. This model is a major improvement with replaceable battery and available refurbishment over the earlier version it replaced that I think this is the best deal going for the assurance it provides and its price.

So far it seems to work as advertised.
Just purchased it, great piece of equipment for your piece of mind while flying with the heater on in the flight schools trainer. I can't rate the durability, reliability, or performance accurately as I have just purchased it. It's very easy to use, and if it detects a carbon dioxide leak and alarms it will save your life!

Great product
I tested this product at home in my garage. I started my 1972 Volkswagen in my closed garage and the unit went off in less than a minute. The alarm was loud and the unit vibrated to alert me. I am going to order a second unit for my Cirrus. The original unit will be kept in our Cessna 150 for my flying partner to share.
