MQ-6 LP Gas Sensor
LP gas (propane/butane) Sensor - MQ-6 (standart).
Sensitive material of MQ-6 gas sensor is SnO2, which with lower conductivity in clean air. When the target combustible gas exist, The sensor’s conductivity is more higher along with the gas concentration rising. Please use simple electrocircuit, Convert change of conductivity to correspond output signal of gas concentration. MQ-6 gas sensor has high sensitity to Propane, Butane and LPG, also response to Natural gas. The sensor could be used to detect different combustible gas, especially Methane, it is with low cost and suitable for different application.
There are two modifications of the sensor:
Standard - with sensitivity.
With analog and digital outputs - with the amplifier output signal and adjusting the heating element sensor. You can configure the sensor to a certain threshold, and connect to the digital input of the microcontroller.
