The TGS5141 from Figaro Engineering Inc. is an ultra-compact and battery operable electrochemical sensor that uses a unique electrolyte. Thus, a water reservoir is no longer necessary. Smaller than sensors requiring liquid electrolyte, it fits size-oriented applications such as portable CO detectors, small residential CO detectors, and multi-sensor fire detectors. Individual data is printed on each sensor in bar code form to allow users to skip the gas calibration process.
This electrochemical-type carbon monoxide sensor measures 13.9mm (diameter) x 5.0mm (thickness). It has high repeatability/selectivity to CO, linear relationship between CO gas concentration and sensor output. Moreover, it can be calibrated easily and has a long-life duration. It also meets UL2034, EN50291 and EN54-31 requirements and can be used for fire detection or residential and commercial CO detectors.
