1 min read

Anglia has announced that it is expanding its range of IoT-ready sensors with the Figaro range of gas sensors, widely used in air quality monitors, gas leak detectors, and other applications.

The new UK and Ireland distribution agreement with Figaro takes Anglia into a completely new field of sensing capability.

According to John Bowman, Marketing Director at Anglia, “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."

Yuki Fujimori, Senior Manager Marketing Department at Figaro added, “Anglia is a well-established UK broadline distributor and we are impressed with its’ strong design in focus and highly trained FAE teams. Our strategy is to take our gas sensors into new and emerging markets and bring them to customers who don’t already know us. 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 widely used in applications such as fire detectors, air quality sensors, refrigerant leak detectors, gas leak detectors and monitors for carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, oxygen, carbon dioxide, chlorine, methane, hydrogen and other gases. Anglia is supporting Figaro with an extensive stock profile of popular sensors and evaluation kits available for same day shipment on Anglia Live. Anglia's FAE team has received full training on the new range.
