What type of gas sensors does Figaro offer?
We have MOS type, electrochemical type, and catalytic type gas sensors. Please refer to the Products page for further detail.
Do gas sensors have sensitivity to gases other than the target gases?
The effects of interference gases differ according to sensor model and sensing principle. Please refer to the sensitivity characteristics graphs of the product information sheets available for each sensor.
Please let us know the detection range of Figaro gas sensors.
Since the detection range differs according to the sensor model and the sensing principle, please refer to the specifications for each sensor. In general, MOS type sensors are suitable for lower gas concentrations, while electrochemical sensors and catalytic type sensors are suitable for higher gas concentrations.
What kind of applications can Figaro sensors be used for?
Figaro sensors are suitable for a wide variety of finished products such as residential gas leak detectors and alarms, air quality monitors, and automotive ventilation control. Please refer to the Products page for further detail.
How should gas sensors be stored?
Please store in clean indoor air at normal room temperature (20˚C). Cautions related to storage conditions will differ according to the sensor model, so please refer to the cautions described in each sensor's documentation.
What is the warranty?
One year from the date of the original retail purchase of products.
Do you have any application notes for designing gas detectors?
Yes. Contact your local distributor.
