Application Ideas

  • Gas leakage detecting
  • Toys


  • Working Voltage: 4.9-5.1V
  • Heating consumption: 0.5-800mW
  • Load resistance : can adjust
  • Heater resistance: 33Ω
  • Sensing Resistance: 3-30kΩ

Hardware Installation

Connect this module to the analog pin of Grove. You can gain the present voltage through the SIG pin. The higher the concentration of the gas, the bigger the output voltage of the SIG pin. Sensitivity can be regulated by rotating the potentiometer. Please note the best preheat time of the sensor is about 24 hours. For the detailed information about the MQ-2 sensor please refer to the datasheet.
