Since its inception, Figaro’s core business of gas sensor manufacture has been focused on eliminating the danger of gas explosion and gas poisoning. To this end, the company has focused on developing gas sensors with ever-increasing precision.
The efforts of the company in this area have been associated with widespread installation of gas leak detectors throughout Japan and has received high praise from the market. In the United States, many cases of carbon monoxide poisoning caused by fossil-fuel burning appliances have prompted legal changes by local jurisdictions requiring installation of carbon monoxide detectors. Figaro employs its experience in gas sensor development to rapidly develop Electrochemical-type gas sensor for carbon monoxide detection.
In accordance with the changes to statutory requirements in the United States, carbon monoxide detectors have been installed in a large percentage of homes. Nevertheless, Figaro is still not satisfied, and continues to work world-wide to ensure that all dangerous gases are detected before harm occurs.
