The Grove - Gas Sensor(MQ5) module is useful for gas leakage detecting(in home and industry). It can detect LPG, natural gas, town gas 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.
For all Grove users (especially beginners), we provide you guidance PDF documents. Please download and read through Preface - Getting Started and Introduction to Grove before your using of the product.
Note: Hot-swapping the grove may lead to IC burnout, please turn off the power of main board before swapping grove.
Please visit our wiki page for more info about this product. It will be appreciated if you can help us improve the documents, add more demo code or tutorials. For technical support, please post your questions to our forum.
More information about gas sensor, please refer to this manual.
I found that the sensor pins are identical from other sensors. Can I replace or remove the sensor from one driver to another driver? Can I buy a CO2 sensor from the 3rd party and wire it on the Grove Gas driver?
Hey , if the circuit is the same, then it will be possible. We don't know what sensor you will buy and how you use that. The warning is at own risk. But happy hacking :)
Hi. I am trying to build a gas detection system using the arduino mega, is The Grove-Gas Sensor(MQ5) compatible with the arduino? If it is, how do I send the signal from the sensor to the arduino? (Meaning what type of cable, servo cable or other type)
Will it detect ozone? If so what range?
Hello Ivan, it could not be used to detect ozone. This sensor only support to detect some nature gas, you could refer to the datasheet (http://seeedstudio.com/wiki/im...for
Hi Kent, thank you for your feedback. We are only the distributor for this product, it is designed by Dangerous team, it will be appreciated if you could send your inquiry to this forum(ht
Could you please let me know if this is suitable for smoke detection or should I use Twig gas sensor MQ2 - and to be used with an Arduino
Twig - Gas Sensor MQ2 is more for smoke detection.
Hello Mohammed, very sorry that we are only distribute this product and we do not know much about its technology. Hence , please send your inquire to the designer(http://dangerousprototype
