How to Chose A Gas Sensor

Introduction

If you search “gas sensor” on www.seeedstudio.com , you can find a lot of gas sensor. We know that the air component is diverse, and a certain gas sensor can detect one or more air components, so we designed a series of gas sensor.

There are about 10 kind of gas sensor for sale. They have similar name, it’s likely to cause confusion. Hope that through the following presentation, we can help you to choose the appropriate gas sensor easily.

It’s obvious that different sensor can detect the same gas. Such as MQ-2, MQ-3, MQ-5 Alcohol Sensor, Grove – HCHO Sensor can detect Alcohol. So if you want an alcohol sensor, then which on should you chosen? Although most of the above sensors are able to detect Alcohol, but you should know that they have different range to Alcohol.

And sometimes, we want to test many gases in one sensor, so how should we choose it ?

Following is the link of all gases to Bazaar, choose the one you needed!

Help us make it better

Thank you for choosing Seeed. A couple of months ago we initiated a project to improve our documentation system. What you are looking at now is the first edition of the new documentation system. Comparing to the old one, here is the progresses that we made:

  • Replaced the old documentation system with a new one that was developed from Mkdocs, a more widely used and cooler tool to develop documentation system.
  • Integrated the documentation system with our official website, now you can go to Bazaar and other section like Forum and Community more conveniently.
  • Reviewed and rewrote documents for hundreds of products for the system’s first edition, and will continue migrate documents from old wiki to the new one.

An easy-to-use instruction is as important as the product itself. We are expecting this new system will improve your experience when using Seeed’s products. However since this is the first edition, there are still many things need to improve, if you have any suggestions or findings, you are most welcome to submit the amended version as our contributor or give us suggestions in the survey below, Please don’t forget to leave your email address so that we can reply.

Happy hacking
