Methane Gas Sensor MQ-4

JS-7382

Be the first to review this product

This methane gas sensor detects the concentration of methane gas in the air and outputs its reading as an analog voltage. The concentration sensing rangeof 300 ppm to 10,000 ppm is suitable for leak detection. For example, the sensor could detect if someone left a gas stove on but not lit.

Description:
This methane gas sensor detects the concentration of methane gas in the air and outputs its reading as an analog voltage. The concentration sensing rangeof 300 ppm to 10,000 ppm is suitable for leak detection. For example, the sensor could detect if someone left a gas stove on but not lit. The sensor can operate at temperatures from -10 to 50°C and consumes less than 150 mA at 5 V. Please read the MQ4 datasheet for more information about the sensor.


Connecting five volts across the heating (H) pins keeps the sensor hot enough to function correctly. Connecting five volts at either the A or B pins causes the sensor to emit an analog voltage on the other pins. A resistive load between the output pins and ground sets the sensitivity of the detector. Please note that the picture in the datasheet for the top configuration is incorrect. Both configurations have the same pinout consistent with the bottom configuration.The resistive load should be calibrated for your particular application using the equations in the datasheet, but a good starting value for the resistor is 20 kΩ.
