Figaro Engineering Inc. (Japan) is pleased to announce its latest offering—the world’s lowest power and the world’s smallest metal oxide type indoor air quality sensor, TGS8100, according to Figaro’s own investigation.
Combining advanced Micro Electro Mechanical Systems technology (MEMS) with Figaro’s 40+ years of extensive experience in metal oxide type gas sensing sensors, Figaro has developed a new indoor air quality sensor with the lowest power consumption and the smallest size of any sensor in the market. With its excellent durability and stability, TGS8100 is ideal for applications such as air cleaners, air conditioners and ventilation fan activation in home and office settings.
Low power sensors make usage possible in applications such as fire detection and home appliances in Europe where allowable power consumption is extremely limited.
Due to miniaturisation of its sensing chip through use of MEMS technology, TGS8100 is housed in a standard surface mounting package, making it suitable for mass produced devices.
