Output voltage: 3.3V
Dimensions: 36 x 17.3 mm

Fuel gauge BQ27441 breakout
Fuel gauge BQ27441 breakout

Fuel gauge is a special type of accessory for lithium batteries that very precisely measures the state of the battery. This includes current voltage [mV], state of charge [%] and probably most interestingly: remaining capacity in the battery [mAh]. It is used with 1S batteries, and provides all this information via the I2C interface.

 

On our board you can find easyC connectors which allow I2C communication with microcontroller. Also, there is a JST input for any pouch battery you can find in our offer, as well as quick connect terminal connector for input if your source doesn’t have JST connector.

Hydrogen sensor MQ8 breakout
Hydrogen sensor MQ8 breakout

Hydrogen is all around us, and it’s very flammable. Its leakage can be very dangerous to both life and property. That’s why it’s important to detect any leakage to prevent in the industry. To help with that, hydrogen sensors like the MQ8 breakout board are used. The sensor detects hydrogen at the range of 100-1000 ppm.

 

The digital and analog outs are on the breakout through-hole pins. They are marked as DO and AO respectively. By setting a threshold value with a potentiometer, you can get the digital output. The analog output will depend on how much gas is detected around the sensor.

 

Product usage tips:

 

The sensor needs 48 hours to preheat to optimal working temperature. The LED on the board will remain off if it detects no gas, and will glow once it does. Two mounting holes allow you to easily secure the board in place. The four pins provided need to be soldered.

 

Due to its long life, you won’t have to worry about changing the sensor often. To prevent damage to the sensor, do not submerge it underwater or freeze it. It will be weakened by highly corrosive gases as well.

CO, flammable gasses sensor MQ9 breakout
CO, flammable gasses sensor MQ9 breakout

We are surrounded by invisible gases everywhere. While we generally don’t have to worry about them, under the right circumstances, they can be very combustible and dangerous. The MQ9 breakout board detects carbon monoxide, methane, propane, and other flammable gases so the right measures can be taken in time. The sensor detects carbon monoxide at 10-1000 ppm and other combustible gasses at 100-10000 ppm.

 

The digital and analog outs can be found on the through-holes. They are marked as DO and AO respectively. The digital output can be obtained by setting a threshold value with a potentiometer. The analog output will depend on the intensity of the gases.

 

Product usage tips:

The sensor needs 48 hours to preheat to optimal working temperature. If it detects some gas, the LED will glow. If there are no gases, it will remain off. The board can be attached to the project thanks to the two mounting holes. It comes with four pins that need to be soldered.

 

Due to its long life, the breakout board can be used for quite some time without a second thought. To prevent damage to the sensor, avoid dipping it in water or freezing it. Highly corrosive gases will weaken the sensor significantly.

PIR Movement sensor board
PIR Movement sensor board

A PIR (passive infrared) motion sensor is a device that detects physical movement within its field of vision by sensing changes in infrared radiation. This sensor works on the principle of detecting thermal thermal signals emitted by objects, mainly warm-blooded creatures like humans. The “passive” in the name refers to the fact that the sensor itself does not emit or radiate any energy for detection.

 

 

Easily connects to Dasduino/Arduino via digital pin. When it detects movement, it sets the output digital pin to HIGH. The angle that the sensor “sees” is 100 degrees and reaches up to 5 meters. It has a potentiometer for delay (how often to check for movement).

 

It is often used in a variety of applications, including home security systems, automatic lighting, and energy management, among others.
