Renesas' Analog SGAS gas sensor portfolio features trace hydrogen and flammable gas sensors. The devices utilize innovative sensing materials to achieve industry-leading stability. This results in fewer calibration cycles and longer product service life, which can save costs associated with replacing or recalibrating sensors in the field. In addition, superior gas sensitivity and selectivity enable customers to detect low-levels of gas while avoiding false readings.

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) and Propane Gas Sensors

Liquefied petroleum and propane gas sensors are used to detect mixtures of hydrocarbon gases. These gases are used for fuel in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles. Unfortunately, these systems have the potential to leak small quantities of gas into the environment. While there are well-established approaches to quantifying explosive levels, such as pellistors and non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensors, detection of trace or ppm levels is a challenge for many sensor technologies. The high sensitivity and fast response time of Renesas propane gas sensors make finding leaks easier.

Methane Gas Sensors

Methane gas sensors monitor the colorless, odorless, hydrocarbon gas. Quick detection of this gas is vital, as this is a contributor to climate pollution and global warming. While there are well-established approaches to quantifying explosive levels, such as pellistors and non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) sensors, detection of trace or ppm levels is a challenge for many sensor technologies. The high sensitivity and fast response time of Renesas methane gas sensors make finding leaks easier.
