To facilitate evaluation of the characteristics of the TGS8100 air quality sensor, Figaro has prepared the EM8100 evaluation module. Testing is simplified by using the continuous output signal generated by this module. While the driving mode of TGS8100 involves intermittent detection (using a 1-second cycle), periodic sensor response is converted into a continuous voltage signal by the software contained in the module’s microprocessor.
The EM8100 includes a replaceable sub-board (EM8100S) on which a TGS8100 sensor is mounted. This sub-board can be ordered separately.
