This gas sensor detects the presence of methane gas at concentrations from 300 ppm to 10000 ppm, a range suitable for detecting gas leaks.
This sensor has high sensitivity and fast response time. The sensors simple analog voltage interface requires only one analog input pin from your microcontroller. The drive circuit is very simple; all you need to do is power the heater coil with 5V, add a load resistance and connect the output to an ADC.
