The Grove - Gas Sensor(MQ2) module is useful for gas leakage detecting(in home and industry). It can detect LPG, i-butane, methane, alcohol, Hydrogen, somke and so on. Based on its fast response time. measurements can be taken as soon as possible. Also the sensitivity can be adjusted by the potentiometer.
Hot-swapping the grove may lead to IC burnout, please turn off the power of main board before swapping grove.

Is this module compatible with LinkIt ONE?
Hi! This one's the Bus Blaster, not the Bus Pirate ;) AFAIK, the Bus Blaster is currently on V2.
I am a noob in this field. Can you tell me what is the working range (in m) of MQ2 sensor? Like will it be able to sense smoke from 1m away?
About this board you can go to Bus Blaster forum http://dangerousprototypes.com... to ask the question.They can help you more then us.
Hello! i have a question, how i can get the value in ppm or %? I follow the instructions that the wiki describe, but i have values like:
After i put the R0 value into the other code, and it show me this values:
Hi there, sorry there is no cables for this but you can use jumper wire to connect it.
Hello! Can I know if anyone has tried using the board for this sensor with the MQ137 Ammonia sensor? The design is practically almost the same and the pins are similar too.
Sorry we don't know, better you can kick"Notify Me"when it back it could remind you.
Yes, All Gas sensors have the same schematic.
Hi, i want know about the value recollected what is the measured unit
Hi,You can refer to the document of Gas sensor on the wiki.
Hello! Can anyone tell me how I would go about heating up the sensor? I know that I need to apply power to the sensor between 24-48 hours (based on the datasheet), my question is,do I have to apply gas (I was planning on using a lighter for this part)
Hi Yesenia Lizasuain.Just plugging it to socket,no need other external power.
Would I be able to remove the MQ2 on this board and replace it with an MQ8?
Hi there, We are not sure that MQ8 would work well with the board, but you can try. Because we didn't test the MQ8 before.
