MQ6 LPG, butane Gas Sensor


Availability: In Stock

The MQ-6 Gas Sensor is designed to detect the presence of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) and butane in the air. Here’s a general description:

1. **Gas Detection:**
– The primary function of the MQ-6 sensor is to detect the presence of LPG and butane gases in the surrounding environment.

2. **Semiconductor-Based Sensor:**
– The sensor uses a semiconductor material that reacts with LPG and butane gases, leading to changes in its electrical conductivity.

3. **Analog Output:**
– The MQ-6 sensor typically provides an analog voltage output that varies based on the concentration of LPG and butane gases detected.

4. **High Sensitivity:**
– MQ-6 is known for its high sensitivity to LPG and butane, making it suitable for detecting low concentrations of these gases.

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

6. **Response Time:**
– The sensor has a specific response time, indicating how quickly it can detect changes in LPG and butane gas concentrations.

7. **Detection Range:**
– The detection range of the MQ-6 sensor defines the minimum and maximum concentrations of LPG and butane it can effectively sense.

8. **Alarm Systems:**
– Often used in alarm systems to alert users to the presence of potentially flammable LPG and butane gases in residential or industrial settings.

9. **Safety Applications:**
– Commonly employed in applications where safety is a concern, such as gas leak detection in kitchens, gas-powered appliances, and industrial environments.

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

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

12. **Preheat Time:**
– The MQ-6 sensor typically requires a preheat time before it stabilizes and becomes fully responsive to changes in gas concentration.

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