MQ-2 Smoke LPG Butane Hydrogen Gas Sensor Detector Module Smoke LPG Butane Hydrogen Gas Sensor Detector Module is useful for gas leakage detection (home and industry). It is suitable for detecting H2, LPG, CH4, CO, Alcohol, Smoke, or Propane. Due to its high sensitivity and fast response time, measurements can be taken as soon as possible. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted by a potentiometer.
MQ-2 gas sensor using gas-sensitive material is to be clean air in the lower conductivity of Tin oxide (SnO2). When the sensor when flammable gases are present in the environment in which the sensor’s conductivity with increasing concentration of combustible gas in the air increases. Use a simple circuit to convert the changes in conductivity and output signal that corresponds to the concentration of the gas.
MQ-2 gas sensors’ have a higher sensitivity to liquefied petroleum gas, propane, hydrogen, and the detection of gas and other combustible vapors is ideal. This sensor can detect a variety of flammable gas, and is a low-cost sensor for many applications.
