How to choose a gas sensor ?
Grove – Multichannel Gas sensor is a environment detecting sensor with a built in MiCS-6814 which can detect many unhealthy gases. 3 gases can be measured simultaneously due to its three channels, so it can help you to monitor the concentration of more than one gas.
This sensor belongs to the Grove system, and you can plug it onto the Base shield and work with Arduino directly without any jumper wires. The interface is I2C, so plug it onto the I2C port of Base shield, then you can start to work on it.
Three fully independent sensing elements on one package
Built with ATmega168PA
I2C interface with programmable address
Heating power can be shut down for low power
Detectable gases:Carbon monoxide (CO) , Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) , Hydrogen (H2) , Ammonia (NH3) , Methane (CH4) , etc.
|Dimensions||89mm x140mm x6.8mm|
|Max Heating Power||88mW|
|Grove – Multichannel Gas Sensor||1|
|26AWG Grove Cable||1|

Hello, I am working a project for school and I am using an LCPExpresso board with I2C. Will this work with that? Do I have to have the base shield?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:30:23
Hi Nick~Theoretically you can use it with LCPExpresso.However we only privode library for Arduino.I am not sure the Arduino Library is compatible with LPCXpresso IDE.If not you need to write the library yourself.I recommend you use Seeeduino V4.2 with this sensor.It will be simple and easy.RegardsAnswer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:30:23
I've two Multichannel Gas Sensor and no one talk with MKR1000. First guess is oriented to the I2C voltage level of the MKR that's 3.3V so I've tried with a Seeeduino 4.2: first a 5V and all was good, then i switched at 3.3V and tried again... the Gas Sensor works again! So... why works a 3.3V with Seeeduino and won't work a 3.3V with MKR?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:41
HI there, please drop mail to firstname.lastname@example.org thanks.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:41
I see from the wiki page that the Raspberry Pi is not supported, but the sensor has an I2C interface. What does it mean? It's just a software problem, that someone can solve writing the code? What happen if I attach it to the Raspberry Pi I2C interface?Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:26
Hi,friend! We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. Hence,if you want to attach it to the Raspberry,you have to write your own software library.Answer by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:23:27
Hello dear friend! Is it the effective sensor for measure outdoor air quality? Especially have interest in NO2 and CO measuring in public project. Thank you.Question by: admin on 2018-12-18 02:21:03
Why increase the concentration of CO, C3H8, C4H10, H2 but not only CH4, NH3 or C2H5OH?
