TECHNICAL INFORMATION FOR TGS813
Technical Information for Combustible Gas Sensors
Figaro TGS 8-series sensors are a
type of sintered bulk metal oxide
semiconductor which offer low
cost, long life, and good
sensitivity to target gases while
utilizing a simple electrical
circuit. The TGS813 displays
high selectivity and sensitivity to
LP Gas and methane.

1-3 Structure
Figure 1 shows the structure of TGS813. This sensor
is a sintered bulk semiconductor composed mainly
of tin dioxide (SnO2). The semiconductor material
and electrodes are formed on an alumina ceramic
tube. A heater coil, made of 60 micron diameter wire,
is located inside the ceramic tube. Lead wires from
the sensor electrodes are a gold alloy of 80 microns
in diameter. Heater and lead wires are spotwelded
to the sensor pins which have been arranged to fit a
7-pin miniature tube socket.
The sensor base and cover are made of Nylon 66,
conforming to UL 94HB (Authorized Material
Standard). The deformation temperature for this
material is in excess of 240˚C. The upper and lower
openings in the sensor case are covered with a
flameproof double layer of 100 mesh stainless steel
gauze (SUS316). Independent tests confirm that this
mesh will prevent a spark produced inside the
flameproof cover from igniting an explosive 2:1
mixture of hydrogen/oxygen.
1-4 Basic measuring circuit
Figure 2 shows the basic measuring circuit for use
with TGS813. Circuit voltage (Vc) is applied across
the sensor element which has a resistance between
the sensor’s two electrodes and the load resistor (RL)
connected in series. The sensor signal (VRL) is
measured indirectly as a change in voltage across the
RL. The Rs is obtained from the formula shown at
the right.
