In this guide, we learn how to interface MQ5 Gas sensor (which is a generic Gas Sensor more suited to detect and determine LPG concentrations) with Arduino. In this tutorial, we are using the MQ5 Gas sensor module (which is widely available in market) . This module has two output possibilities – an analog out (A0) and a digital out (D0). The analog out can be used to detect Gas leakage and to measure volume of Gas leakage (by doing proper calculation of the sensor output inside program) in specific units (say ppm). The digital out can be used to detect Gas leakage and hence trigger an alert system (say a sound alarm or an sms activation etc). The digital out gives only two possible outputs – High and Low (hence its more suited for detection of gas leak than to measure volume of gas presence). Note:- We have developed…
