MQ5 Natural Gas, LPG Sensor


Availability: In Stock

The MQ-5 gas sensor is designed to detect various types of gases, including natural gas (methane) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), commonly used in household and industrial settings. Here’s a general description:

1. **Gas Detection:**
– The primary function of the MQ-5 sensor is to detect the presence of gases, including natural gas (methane) and LPG (liquefied petroleum gas).

2. **Semiconductor-Based Sensor:**
– The sensor employs a semiconductor material that reacts to the presence of specific gases, causing changes in its electrical conductivity.

3. **Analog Output:**
– The MQ-5 sensor typically provides an analog voltage output that varies based on the concentration of gases detected.

4. **High Sensitivity:**
– MQ-5 is known for its high sensitivity to various combustible gases, making it suitable for detecting a range of flammable gases.

5. **Multiple Gas Detection:**
– In addition to natural gas and LPG, the MQ-5 sensor can also respond to other gases like propane, isobutane, and methane.

6. **Adjustable Sensitivity:**
– Some versions of the MQ-5 sensor come with a potentiometer that allows users to adjust the sensitivity of the sensor.

7. **Response Time:**
– The sensor has a specific response time, indicating how quickly it can detect changes in gas concentration.

8. **Detection Range:**
– The detection range of the MQ-5 sensor defines the minimum and maximum concentrations of gases it can effectively sense.

9. **Alarm Systems:**
– Often used in alarm systems to alert users to the presence of combustible gases, ensuring safety in environments where gas leaks can pose a risk.

10. **Safety Applications:**
– Commonly employed in applications where safety is a concern, such as gas leak detection in homes, kitchens, industrial facilities, or laboratories.

11. **Environmental Monitoring:**
– Used for monitoring gas levels in the environment to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.

12. **Low Power Consumption:**
– Designed to operate with relatively low power consumption, making it suitable for battery-powered devices or applications.

13. **Preheat Time:**
– The MQ-5 sensor typically requires a preheat time before it stabilizes and becomes fully responsive to changes in gas concentration.

14. **DIY Electronics:**
– Suitable for use in do-it-yourself (DIY) electronics projects where gas detection is a required feature.
