Overview

DISCONTINUED. The CH4 Gas Sensor is used in gas detection equipment for detecting Methane in home, automotive or industrial settings. This sensor plugs into our Gas Sensor Board (#27983) for convenient protoyping and microcontroller-based projects.

Key Features:

  • Manufacturer Model MQ-2
  • Wide detecting scope
  • Stable and long life
  • Simple drive circuit
  • Fast response and high sensitivity
  • Fits our Gas Sensor Board (#27983) for convenient prototyping

Application Ideas:

  • Safety Devices (harmful gas detection)
  • Environmental monitoring

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

Note: This sensor, when paired with our Gas Sensor Board (#27983) replaces our CH4 Gas Sensor Module (#27930). 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.
