MQ-5 Gas Sensor Module

The Simple MQ-5 Methane LPG Liquid Propane Gas Sensor Module is a great way to add basic gas sensing to your project at a reasonable price. TheMQ-5 Methane LPG Liquid Propane Gas Sensor Module particulate sensor uses a Buzzer to sense any detected material that is even present in the air! 

This MQ-5 Methane LPG Liquid Propane Gas Sensor Module is widely used in gas leakage detecting pieces of equipment in family and industry, are suitable for detecting LPG, natural gas, town gas, avoiding the noise of alcohol and cooking fumes and cigarette smoke

The MQ5 ( MQ-5 ) is used in gas leakage detecting equipment in consumer and industry applications, this sensor is suitable for detecting LPG, natural gas, and coal gas. Avoid the noise of alcohol, cooking fumes, and cigarette smoke. The sensitivity can be adjusted by the potentiometer.

The sensitive material of the MQ-5 gas sensor is tin Oxide (SnO2), which with lower conductivity in clean air. When the target combustible gas exists, The sensor’s conductivity is higher along with the gas concentration rising. Please use a simple electro circuit, Convert the change of conductivity to the corresponding output signal of gas concentration.

MQ-5 gas sensor has a high sensitivity to Methane, Propane, and Butane, and could be used to detect both Methane and Propane. The sensor could be used to detect different combustible gas, especially Methane, it is low cost and suitable for different applications.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What are gas sensors? How do they work?

    • Gas sensors (also known as gas detectors) are electronic devices that detect and identify different types of gasses. They are commonly used to detect toxic or explosive gasses and measure gas concentration. 
      Gas sensor detects the presence or concentration of gases in the atmosphere. Based on the concentration of the gas the sensor produces a corresponding potential difference by changing the resistance of the material inside the sensor, which can be measured as output voltage. Based on this voltage value the type and concentration of the gas can be estimated.

    2. How to use MQ-5 Gas Sensor?

    • Power the module with 5V and you should notice the power LED on the module to glow and when no gas it detected the output LED will remain turned off meaning the digital output pin will be 0V. Remember that these sensors have to be kept on for pre-heating time before you can actually work with it. Now, introduce the sensor to the gas you want to detect and you should see the output LED to go high along with the digital pin, if not use the potentiometer until the output gets high. Now every time your sensor gets introduced to this gas at this particular concentration the digital pin will go high (5V) else will remain low (0V).
