Power generators are extremely useful in today’s world and I highly recommend everybody to own one. It can really help you and your family out during a power outage, or you can take it with you on your next outdoor trip to enjoy some modern-day luxuries. However, do you know the harmful emissions that these types of machinery put out in the air? Honda Power Equipment is putting your safety first by including, what they are calling, “CO-MINDER” into their units. Let us talk about why this is important.
Let’s first discuss the emissions generators let out into the air. In fact, this applies to any machine with a combustible engine, whether it’s a small gasoline string trimer or a gas/diesel automobile. Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that can be lethal if not ventilated well. The good news is that with proper precautions, you could easily protect yourself and others from this poisonous gas.
"CO-Minder aids in reducing the risk of injury or fatality..."
A second line of defense is to stay alert with carbon monoxide detectors. This is where Honda’s CO-MINDER feature really helps with the fight against carbon monoxide (CO).
CO-MINDER aids in reducing the risk of injury or fatality due to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. This built-in system continuously measures CO levels. It will automatically shut down the generator before carbon monoxide levels near the generator reach a dangerous level. CO-MINDER uses a very robust, fast reacting, long lasting sensor to determine CO levels. Warning lights on the faceplate indicate if an instance of high CO levels shut down the generator.
HONDA GENERATORS WITH CO-MINDER DETECTION SYSTEM
I am very pleased to see Honda stepping up to the plate and implementing safety standards in their generators. This CO-MINDER feature highlights Honda’s commitment for consumer safety and pushes the industry forward by setting an example for others. The big take away from this read is carbon monoxide (CO) awareness. This is an extremely important topic to talk about and educating yourself AND your family about carbon monoxide is priority number one. It has been proven that generators are very safe to operate if you put education and safety first.
