MQ2 Methane, Butane, LPG, Smoke Sensor


Availability: In Stock

The MQ2 sensor is a gas detection module capable of sensing various gases commonly found in household and industrial environments. Here’s a general description of the MQ2 sensor’s capabilities:

1. **Gas Detection:**
– The MQ2 sensor is designed to detect the presence of several gases, including methane, butane, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), and smoke.

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

3. **Multiple Gas Detection:**
– MQ2 is versatile, capable of sensing a range of gases commonly associated with combustible and flammable materials.

4. **Analog Output:**
– The sensor typically provides an analog voltage output proportional to the concentration of gases detected.

5. **Adjustable Sensitivity:**
– Some versions of the MQ2 sensor feature a potentiometer for adjusting sensitivity, allowing users to set the detection threshold.

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

7. **Detection Range:**
– The detection range of the MQ2 sensor defines the minimum and maximum concentrations of gases it can effectively sense.

8. **Applications:**
– Commonly used in gas leakage detection systems, gas alarms, and environmental monitoring to ensure safety in areas where gas leaks could pose a risk.

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

10. **Industrial Safety:**
– Deployed in industrial settings to monitor the presence of flammable gases and smoke, contributing to workplace safety.

11. **Combustible Gas Monitoring:**
– Used in applications where monitoring combustible gases like methane and butane is essential.

12. **Smoke Detection:**
