Announcement of new MEMS type methane sensor TGS8410

TGS8410-datasheet.jpgWe are pleased to announce Figaro's latest development--the world's lowest power*1 metal oxide type methane sensor TGS8410.

Combining advanced Micro Electro Mechanical Systems technology (MEMS) with Figaro's 40+ years of extensive experience in metal oxide type gas sensors, Figaro has developed a new methane gas sensor with the lowest power consumption of any sensor in the market. With its excellent durability and stability, TGS8410 is ideal for applications such as portable gas detectors and wireless gas detectors. This low power sensor makes it possible to manufacture a methane gas detector that can achieve 5 years life when using a single lithium battery*2.

The device is housed in a standard TO-5 package.
