Overview

The Gas Sensor Board is designed to work in conjunction with one of the gas sensors listed below (not included) allowing you to determine when a preset gas level has been reached or exceeded.

  • CO (Carbon Monoxide) Gas Sensor (#605-00007)
  • CH4 (Methane) Gas Sensor (#605-00008)
  • LPG (Propane) Gas Sensor (#605-00009)
  • C2H5OH (Alcohol) Gas Sensor (#605-00011)

The gas sensor simply plugs into the Gas Sensor Board, making it easy to use these sensors in embedded projects. The board can interface to a microcontroller with only two I/O pins, allowing the sensor to be controlled and monitored automatically.

Key Features:

  • SIP header interface with 0.1" spacing for easy connection to prototyping boards or extension cables  
  • Controllable internal heater facilitates accurate measurements  
  • Low-power standby mode reduces power usage for embedded projects
  • Only two microcontroller I/O pins required for operation  

Application Ideas:

  • Gas level over-limit alarm
  • Stand-alone/background sensing device
  • Environmental monitoring equipment

 

Details

  • Voltage requirements: 5 VDC
  • Current requirements: ~165mA (heater on), ~60mA (heater off)
  • Interface: 1 TTL compatible input (HSW); 1 TTL compatible output (ALR)
  • Dimensions: 1.50 x 1.0 x 1.0 in (38.1 x 25.4 x 25.4 mm)
  • Operating temp range: 14 to 122 °F (-10 to +50°C)

Notes:

  • The Gas Sensor Board requires one of our sensors, a source of gas for calibration and a tiny flathead screwdriver.
  • The Gas Sensor Board and individual gas sensors replace the discontinued product numbers listed below. Please note that on boards labeled 27983 pin 2 is active-high, and on boards labeled 27904, 27930, 27931, and 27932, pin 2 is active-low.
