MQ-8 Hydrogen Gas Sensor MQ8 in Pakistan
It is a simple to use sensor. The hydrogen gas sensor is used in the detection of gas leakage equipment in domestic and industrial applications. Avoid alcohol vapor, kitchen fumes, LP gas and carbon dioxide. The sensitivity can be adjusted by the potentiometer.
This hydrogen gas sensor, suitable for detecting concentrations of hydrogen in the air. You can detect concentrations of hydrogen gas anywhere from 100 to 10000 ppm ( Part Per Million). This sensor has a high sensitivity and fast response. The sensor output is an analog resistor. The control circuit is very simple, all you have to do is power the heater coil with 5V, add a load resistor and connect the DC output. This sensor comes in a package similar to the MQ-3 alcohol sensor, compatible with any microcontroller including Arduino.
MQ-8 Hydrogen Gas Sensor MQ8 in Pakistan Specifications:
- Supply voltage: 5V
- Operating temperature: -10 to 50 ° C
- Power consumption: less than 750 mW
- Interface type: Analog.
- Pin Definition: 1-output, 2 GND, 3-VCC
- Response fast and high sensitivity.
- High sensitivity to hydrogen (H2).
- Low sensitivity to alcohol and smoke, to LPG
