Anglia expands range of IoT-ready gas sensors

Anglia has announced the expansion of its range of Internet of Things (IoT)-ready sensors with the Figaro range of gas sensors, which are used in air quality monitors, gas leak detectors and other applications. The distribution agreement with Figaro is for the UK and Ireland.

Commenting on the news, John Bowman, marketing director at Anglia said: “Gas detection is now a mainstream requirement on the Internet of Things as customers seek to remotely monitor all aspects of the environment and detect fault conditions. Figaro is an internationally recognised pioneer in this field and its range of sensors is second to none in terms of its quality, performance and breadth of capability. The range sits perfectly alongside Anglia’s already extensive and justly popular range of sensors, and is highly complementary to our processor, communications and analog semiconductor portfolios.”

“Anglia is a well-established UK broadline distributor and we are impressed with its strong design in focus and highly trained FAE teams,” added Yuki Fujimori, senior manager in Figaro’s marketing department. “Our strategy is to take our gas sensors into new and emerging markets and bring them to customers who don’t already know us. Anglia has the drive, enthusiasm and expertise to accomplish this goal. Designing in gas sensors requires specialist skills and knowledge and it has become extremely apparent, during our training with the Anglia FAE team, that they ‘get’ this technology and are fully ready to work with customers on live design projects.”

Figaro gas sensors are used in applications for monitoring carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, oxygen, carbon dioxide, chlorine, methane, hydrogen and other gases. Anglia will support Figaro with a large stock of popular sensors and evaluation kits.
