The MQ2 gas sensor module is a smoke-sensitive product that can detect combustible gases such as methane, butane, propane, alcohol, and liquefied petroleum gas. There is a small heater and an electrochemical sensor inside the MQ series smoke detector. MQ2 gas sensor can detect a variety of gas concentrations from 200 to 10,000 ppm, suitable for indoor use at room temperature.

Smoke Sensor Module MQ-2

The sensor module has a digital pin that can detect specific gases even without a microcontroller. To measure the gas concentration in ppm, you can use the analog output of the sensor module, which works with TTL and 5V compared to most traditional microcontrollers. equal. The sensor has a built-in potentiometer, which can set the digital output threshold and control the overall sensitivity of the sensor.
