CO Shield™ – Carbon Monoxide Auto-Shutoff

Powerful Protection From Harmful Carbon Monoxide

What’s colorless, odorless, tasteless, and poisonous? Carbon monoxide, also known as CO.

CO Shield helps protect you and your family from harmful exposure to carbon monoxide before it has the chance to build up.

The dangers of carbon monoxide are real. It’s impossible to determine the presence of the harmful gas by sight or smell. Thanks to CO Shield™ Technology, you can know for sure that you and your family are protected.

Having an additional source of power at your disposal is great, but not at the risk of your family’s wellbeing. Portable generator safety has always been the top priority for Champion, so of course, they’re excited to make this potentially life-saving technology available to you.

You can count on CO Shield’s ability to make sure your environment is safe since the UL-listed sensor is designed to test itself automatically and lasts a minimum of a decade.

When the sensor detects the presence of CO, the carbon monoxide auto-shutoff system will shut off the generator before harmful levels of carbon monoxide have the chance to accumulate in your generator’s operating area.

The CO Shield LED will pulse red to tell you there is an emergency, and the generator will shut down, which indicates that it needs to be moved to a safe location since generators should only be operated in an open, outdoor area with plenty of circulation.

CO Shield Technology is just one example of how Champion Power Equipment is constantly working to bring you advanced, innovative features to make sure you have safe, reliable power whenever you need it.

Champion’s CO Shield offers you peace of mind with powerful protection from hazardous carbon monoxide.
