Overview

The CO Gas Sensor is used in gas detection equipment for detecting Carbon Monoxide in home, automotive or industrial settings. When paired with our Gas Sensor Module (#27904) it provides a development system and test platform for CO gas sensor design.

Key Features:

  • Manufacturer Model MQ-7 
  • High sensitivity to Carbon Monoxide (CO) 
  • Stable and long life
  • Simple drive circuit

Application Ideas:

  • Safety Devices (harmful gas detection)
  • Environmental monitoring

Note: Please refer to the manufacturer datasheet for more informaton and circuit recommendations.
