Is your office located near a high traffic area? Are you concerned about the presence of natural and liquefied petroleum gases in your work environment? The MQ series sensors can help detect various gases, and the MQ5 sensor is an easy-to-use sensor that provides information about the levels of natural gases and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) in your surroundings. It quickly detects gas particles in the range of 200 to 10,000 ppm.

The breakout board provides digital and analog information through the easyC system. Sensor readings are obtained through easyC.

 

Product usage tips:

 

When gas is detected, the LED will start glowing. It will remain off if it doesn’t detect anything. Four mounting holes enable easy mounting to surfaces. The board comes with three male headers.

Is your office near a high-traffic area? Are you concerned about the amount of natural and liquefied petroleum gases in your work environment? The MQ5 is a simple-to-use sensor to put your mind at ease. It detects gas particles very quickly between 200 and 10000 ppm.

 

The breakout board works with both digital (DO) and analog signals (AO). The digital output is obtained by setting a threshold value with a potentiometer. The analog output will differ depending on the intensity of the gas.

 

Product usage tips:

 

The sensor takes 24 hours to preheat to optimal working temperature. When gas is detected, the LED will start glowing. It will remain off if it doesn’t detect anything. Two mounting holes enable easy mounting to surfaces. The board comes with four pins that need to be soldered.

 

The breakout board boasts a long life so you don’t have to worry about it suddenly breaking. Submerging the sensor underwater and freezing it will damage it beyond repair. Highly corrosive gases will also damage the sensor.
