The meter detects CO and provides a measurement of its concentration; a detector does the same thing but usually also has an alarm set to go off if the measurement exceeds some measured value.

A CO meter is just that. A meter the registers the CO level in PPM, (Parts Per Million). It may have an audible alarm that can be set to any level by the operator. A CO detector is a alarm that will go into alarm when a factory set level is reached. Recommended maximum level is 9 PPM (Maximum recommended indoor CO level (ASHRAE). It should be note that like smoke detectors, the test button only test the audible alarm part and not the sensors. The sensors can only be checked in a facility set up to do this. This testing cost more then a new detector.
