What is Carbon Monoxide?
Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, tasteless and odourless gas that is produced when fossil fuels such as coal, oil, natural gas, LPG, charcoal and wood are not burnt efficiently. It can be produced from poorly maintained or badly fitted domestic heating appliances such as boilers, wall heaters, wood burners, blocked flues or exhaust vents.
What are the symptoms?The symptoms of CO poisoning include headaches, sickness, tiredness and muscle pain, all of which can be misdiagnosed as the flu. It is therefore important to protect your family and home with a Carbon Monoxide Alarm.
The PSA Lifesaver LIFCO9 alarm protects against the dangers of deadly carbon monoxide levels in the home and provides continuous monitoring of CO levels.
This alarm can be installed on a wall, or as a tabletop unit for added convenience. The PSA Lifesaver LIFCO9 units are easy to install and provide reliable protection against the dangers of carbon monoxide.
These alarm units benefit from a small, sleek design that is suitable for all living areas. They have a 7-year sensor life, providing up to 40% longer protection than many other CO alarms currently available.

Last year Toyota UK announced that they were seeking approval for a ground-mounted solar array that will include 17,000 solar panels. Once approved and complete the solar installation will offset about 5% of the electricity demand of its plant in Burnaston and will prevent 45,000 tons of CO2 from going into the atmosphere in its lifetime.
Toyota Deputy Managing Director, Tony Walker, commented:
“Using solar power to supply electricity to the plant underlines our commitment to the UK’s low-carbon economy and our own ambitions to further reduce our carbon footprint.”
And now it looks as though Honda and BMW are following suit. Honda has been installing solar power generation systems at its operations in locations around Japan, reaching a total capacity of 3.3 megawatts. Not only that but Honda says it will install 2.6-megawatt Soltec system at its new Yorii Plant, which Honda says will be the largest solar power generation system installed at an auto-mobile facility in Japan.
BMW has also taken the solar path, having recently completed installing 400 solar modules, each with a 240 watt capacity, at BMW’s Manufacturing’s heritage museum and visitor’s center. The $500,000 solar power system provides all the electricity required to run the Museum and will also be powering three new electric vehicle charging stations throughout the main facility.

You could be forgiven for thinking that every possible enhancement and innovation has been eked out of this remarkable design. However, not so. The engineering team at Clipsal’s head office in Gepps Cross, South Australia has now introduced a new model to the 30 Mech family, the 30USM (Universal Switch Mechanism).
The new 30USM has a whopping 20A capacity and can switch fluorescent loads up to 16AX as well as increased performance in high short circuit conditions, which makes it a truly universal switch mechanism and ideal for any application.
The team has also introduced a deep contact action and 3mm air gap within the mechanism. This eliminates visible arcing and “crackling”, preventing carbon deposits on the dolly (switch) and aperture. Not to mention an independent “snap” action of the dolly bridge that stops the switch from being partially turned on or off.
Cathryn Blair, Clipsal Marketing Operations Manager says that the combination of new features and modular 30 Mechanism design gives electrical contractors a flexible switch solution.
“The huge switching capacity and modular design of the 30USM provides contractors with a convenient and flexible switch solution, which can be used across many applications. The great advantage of this is that contractors only need to carry one switch mechanism, preventing the need to carry several switch mechanisms for different applications.”
