MQ3 Alcohol ethanol Gas sensor
In stock (can be backordered)
Gas Sensor(MQ3) module is useful for gas leakage detection (in home and industry). It is suitable for detecting Alcohol, Benzine, CH4, Hexane, LPG, CO. Due to its high sensitivity and fast response time, measurements can be taken as soon as possible. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted by using the potentiometer.
Note that The sensor value only reflects the approximated trend of gas concentration in a permissible error range, it DOES NOT represent the exact gas concentration. The detection of certain components in the air usually requires a more precise and costly instrument, which cannot be done with a single gas sensor. If your project is aimed at obtaining the gas concentration at a very precise level, then we do not recommend this gas sensor.
- High sensitivity to alcohol and small sensitivity to Benzine
- Stable and long life
- Fast response and High sensitivity
- Alcohol checker.
This is a Analog output sensor. This needs to be connected to any one Analog socket in Base Shield. The examples used in this tutorial makes uses of A0 analog pin. Connect this module to the A0 port of Base Shield.
It is possible to connect the Grove module to Arduino directly by using jumper wires by using the connection as shown in the below table:
