New battery-operated methane sensor provides high levels of selectivity and durability

Mar 30 2022

Figaro Engineering Inc. has recently launched the TGS8410 methane gas sensor. The TGS8410 merges the latest Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology with Figaro’s five decades of experience in Metal Oxide Semiconductor (MOS) type gas sensors to create a methane gas sensor that has the lowest power consumption in its entire range. On average, power consumption is below 0.1mW, so a methane gas detector can now operate for as long as five years using just one lithium battery (2.8V/2400mAH).

These sensors have filter material in their housing to eradicate the effect of interference gases which results in a highly sensitive and selective response to methane gas. 

The TGS8410 offers reliability, precision, durability, and stability, making it the perfect choice for use in portable gas detectors, wireless residential gas detectors, leak detection for natural gas vehicles, gas pipelines to name just a few of its possible applications.
