Replace Safe-T-Alert RV30-441 Propane Alarm With a Safe-T-Alert 35-741,CO Alarm/Gas Alarm Combo

by Barbara 24. October 2013 06:05

Question about replacements for CCI Controls Propane Alarm 7770.244.

Question: "What 12 Volt RV gas alarm can replace my CCI Controls 7770.244 that is beeping? I also need a new carbon monoxide alarm." Thanks. Steve.

Answer: Safe-T-Alert has two units, the Safe-T-Alert 30-441 and the Safe-T-Alert 35-741. Both are surface mount units.  If you want to add more carbon monoxide detection, I suggest the new combination units, the 35-741 which comes in a black surface mount RV alarm and a white unit. The 30-441, gas only monitor with alarm, comes in brown and white. Both have approximately the same dimensions as the old CCI units.

If your carbon monoxide alarm is hard-wired, please look at these two units, the Safe-T-Alert 65-542 and the Safe-T-Alert 65-541 . The first is flush mounted, i.e. the rear of the unit goes into your RV wall. The second is flush mounted. These are available in white, brown and black.

If your carbon monoxide alarm is battery powered, consider replacing it with the Costar 9RV which meets all the RVIA specs for humidity and temperature ranges. For more protection, install the Costar 12RV-DB which hooks to both your coach 12 volt system and to your RV 12 volt engine battery. This unit draws from the unit with the most power and also has a 9 volt battery back-up.

And make sure your smoke alarm was replaced within the past 5 years as well. Nothing more annoying than being woken in the middle of the night by a false alarm! The Safe-T-Alert 775 is a 9 volt battery powered unit that is UL listed and approved for RV use.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely,

Barbara

Install Safety First Automatic Gas Valve System and Prevent Gas Explosions In Home or Business

by Barbara 20. September 2010 13:13

Question about the Scentry III GFRAB Automatic Gas Valve and Gas Detector System and the Scentry III SFGVC Gas Valve Controller, No Gas Valve

Q:"After the explosion in San Bruno, CA on 9/9/2010, I am concerned about my home exploding. I have a natural gas furnace, a natural gas fireplace, a natural gas water heater and a natural gas range. I don't have a full basement: my crawl space is about 12 inches high. Drainage is excellent. There would be some moisture but not water. Can this automatic gas valve and sensor system system be installed there?I see that the Scentry III has a connection for an auto-dialer and also can be connected to a ventilation system. Thanks. Thomas."

Answer: This unit allows you to use remote gas detectors to place near your other gas appliances. There is a battery back-up available if you want protection during a power failure. We do have an installation manual available on our website for this unit.The Scentry Installation Manual.

The GFRAB stands for gas sensor, mounting feet, remote ready, alarm and battery and includes the gas valve shut-off/controller. NOTE: Must be used with a Scentry III gas valve (sold separately).  Each Scentry gas sensor is calibrated in a gaseous atmosphere so it will alarm at 10% of the lower explosive level (LEL) of the combustible gas. This is not a carbon monoxide alarm as it has only a combustible gas alarm sensor.

Scentry III-GFRAB Gas (Mounting) Feet Remote (Ready) Alarm Battery Specifications:

  • Case: ABS Plastic
  • Physical Size: 7.6 inches by 4.6 inches
  • Weight: 2.25 lbs
  • Color: Gray
  • Power consumption: 1.5va
  • Supports up to 4 calibrated remote sensors (not included)
  • Requires Scentry III-GVD gas valve (purchase separately)
  • Supports Battery Back-Up (Not Included)
  • Gas Valve Controller for combustible gasses such as natural gas or propane gas. Includes a 24 volt transformer.
  • Connections: screw terminals
  • Input Power: 115VAC, 60 Hz
  • Output Control Relays: 2 amps, 24 VAC
  • Alarm Signal Output: 12V DC @500 ma
  • Reset: manual
  • Sensor Type: Tin Dioxide Semiconductor
  • Alarm Points: Propane (LP) <5200 PPM
  • Alarm Points: Natural Gas / Methane <12,200 PPM
  • Manufactured Proudly in the USA for Safety First USA, Inc.
  • Warranty: 1 year from date of purchase.

The gas valves that interface are a 1/2 inch, a 3/4 inch and a 1 inch valve.

Scentry III-SFGVC Safety First Gas Valve Controller Specifications:
  • Case: ABS Plastic
  • Physical Size: 4.6 inches by 3.1 inches
  • Weight: .5 lb.
  • Color: Bone
  • Reset: manual
  • Output Control Relays: 4 amp, 24VAC
  • Power: 1.5va
  • Sensor Type: Tin Dioxide Semiconductor
  • Connections: screw terminals
  • Propane alarm point: <5200 PPM
  • Natural Gas/Methane<12,200 PPM
  • Note: Requires a UL Listed Scentry III .5 inch, .75 inch or 1 inch diaphragm type gas valve that is compatible (not included).
  • Note: Requires a 24V transformer (NOT INCLUDED). See installation instructions for specifications i.e. must match the transformer to power requirements of your gas valve.
  • Note: No option for battery back-up to be added later
  • Note: No option for additional sensors to be added later.
  • Made in USA.
  • Manufacturer: Safety First USA

The gas valves that interface are a 1/2 inch, a 3/4 inch and a 1 inch valve.

So the main differences between the units are that the Scentry III-GFRAB gas alarm and gas valve controller (shut-off) includes the 24 volt transformer, has mounting feet and can add options of battery back-up, remote gas sensors and remote alarms.  With the battery option, the pilot lights remain litt during intermittent power failures in regions such as the mountain states where electric power is not always continuous. A 12V output allows adding a phone dialer to alert owners of vacation homes, etc. when an unsafe condition has occurred. Remote gas sensors can be added near gas ranges, gas water heaters, gas furnaces, gas heaters, etc. to add protection using only one gas valve controller.

Please contact us if you have questions about what components to install.

Remember that you need carbon monoxide sensor alarms on every floor of your home and in every bedroom where you close the door. The CO monitor does not monitor propane or natural gas leaks: it monitors the carbon monoxide levels from incomplete combustion of fossil fuels like wood, coal, gas, charcoal, etc.

Thanks again for your timely question.

Sincerely, Barbara

 

Safe-T-Alert STA-35-742, STA-30-441 or STA-30-442 Replace CCI 7770 and 7773 Series RV Propane Alarms

by Barbara 29. March 2010 07:37

Question about the Safe-T-Alert RV Propane Gas Alarms, Models 35-742, 30-441, 30-442 and 70-742

Question: "The CCI propane alarm in my RV needs replaced. I've just learned CCI is no longer in business. What are my options? Thanks, Tony."

Answer:  CCI closed down in February 2009.

To determine which unit you need, you need first to answer this question: Do you have a unit that shuts off the propane gas valve if there is a leak or is yours a propane gas alarm without an automatic gas valve shut-off?

For a unit that has a gas valve shut off, you need a 70-742-R Kit which is available in white, brown or black. This kit includes the solenoid valve. Do not connect the Safe-T-Alert to any other valve or you risk a fire. These units replace the 7719.04 and 7719.7.

For a recessed or flush mount propane alarm only, the recessed propane gas alarm model 30-442 in brown, white or black fits the CCI LP Gas Alarm Cut Out (7770 series) for Flush Mount Models. These can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

For a recessed or flush mount propane alarm only, you can add a carbon monoxide alarm and propane gas combination unit, the recessed 35-442 in brown, white or black fits the CCI LP Gas Alarm Cut Out (7770 series) for Flush Mount Models. These can be mounted vertically or horizontally.

For a surface mount propane alarm only, the 30-441 in brown and white replaces the CCI LP Gas Alarm 7770 surface mount series These can be mounted vertically or horizontally.  You can also get additional protection with a Safe-T-Alert 35-541, now available in black or white . This unit combines a propane gas alarm with a carbon monoxide alarm, all in the same case for economy of space.

For a combination carbon monoxide and propane gas alarm, choose the 35-542 recessed unit in brown , 35-542 recessed unit in white or the special order 35-542 recessed combination unit in black. The cut out is the same as the CCI 7700 series cut-out and identical to the Classic Series 30-442-P Safety Alert models.

Note: Some CCI units in Fleetwood or Winnebago RV's have two power leads, i.e. three wires. The Safe-T-Alert 30 and 35 series units have only one power lead. Connect the red power lead to the coach power supply and cap or remove the other power lead. Use butt connectors to replace any unit with spade connections.

CARBON MONOXIDE & PROPANE ALARM REPLACEMENT NOTICE: Note to Customers:

All Safe-T-Alert Propane and Carbon Monoxide Alarms that are 5 years old and older are beyond their Mandatory Replacement Time and MUST be replaced.

Background: Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL®) Carbon Monoxide Standard UL 2034 and Canadian Standards Association (CSA®) CSA 119.2 now require that all Carbon Monoxide alarms be designed to stop service in 3 to 5 years . UL and CSA have determined that Carbon Monoxide alarms have a limited life. Propane alarms use similar sensors and UL will require the same service life in the near future.

ALL MTI Propane and Carbon Monoxide alarms which are over five (5) years old MUST be replaced. The following Safe-T-Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm Models MUST be replaced: SA-4, SA-5, 50-541 and 50-542. Models 60-541 and 60-542 over five (5) years old MUST be replaced.The following Safe-T-Alert Propane Alarms Models MUST be replaced: SA-7 and SA-8. Models 30-441,30-442, 40-441 and 40-442 that are over five (5) years old MUST be replaced.

Important! Only install CO and Propane alarms that are UL or CSA listed for Recreational Vehicle Use

I hope this helps.

Thanks for your question.

Sincerely, Barbara
