Figaro Combustible Gas Sensors/World leader in gas sensing innovation
Throughout the 40 year history of the residential market in Japan, gas sensors and gas detectors have been steadily improving. As a result, today gas detectors have achieved maintenance-free operation and carry a 5-year warranty.. It is standard practice to use sensors with an internal filter for durability and resistance to false alarming due to interference gases.
All Figaro combustible gas sensors for residential gas alarms have an internal filter. The amount of filter material is designed to meet the required response time (≦30sec) of the European standard. However, since response time is largely influenced by detector housing design, it is recommend that Figaro be contacted for advice on housing design.
All manufactured sensors are inspected by using target gases under temperature and humidity-controlled conditions.
The manufacturing history of sensors can be traced by production lot number. Long term stability is also traced by production lot.
TGS2610/2611 are individually marked with an ID number indicating a factory presorted classification that corresponds to narrow ranges of sensor resistance in methane/LPG. When the sensor’s ID number is properly used, the calibration process can be greatly simplified, eliminating long preconditioning time and the complicated handling of calibration gas.
For eliminating gas calibration of TGS6810/6812, please refer to the detailed procedures found in TGS6810/6812 application notes
Figaro recommends pre-calibrated modules
LPM2610/NGM2611and FCM6812 which are calibrated at its factory under strictly controlled conditions

Figaro gas sensors meet environmental regulations such as Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization & Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)
Figaro continues striving to develop sensors with lower power consumption. Due to miniaturization of the sensor chip, the power consumption of TGS2610/2611 is only 280mW. For lower power consumption requirements, please consult with Figaro.
Figaro combustible gas sensors are designed to have long life. Expected sensor life of TGS6810/6812 is 10 years.
Throughout its 45+ year history in the residential gas detector business, Figaro has developed in-depth knowledge of gas sensor applications. As a result, Figaro can offer technical advice in circuit design, component selection, detector housing design, and manufacturing processes.
Figaro has detailed data sheets, including Technical Information and Application Notes.
