Well, detecting air quality is getting more important as we need to take care the only Earth that we have. And with the increasing air and environmental pollution, this MQ135 Air Quality Sensor Module will be a good assistant and provide useful information about the surrounding air.
This is sensor module based on MQ135 gas sensor uses in clean air low conductivity tin oxide (SnO2). It comes with basic components to enable the sensor to function properly and hook up easily to any controller that you preferred. When the sensor is kept in their environment, the conductivity in the sensor increases with the air pollution in gas concentration increases.
By using a simple circuitry converts the conductivity changes to analog voltage corresponding to the gas concentration. MQ135 Air Quality Sensor Module for ammonia, sulfide , benzene vapor high sensitivity of the smoke and other harmful monitor is also very good. This sensor can be used to measure a variety of harmful gases and also a low-cost sensors for a variety of applications .
For Arduino, connect DO to any digital pin (if you want it in digital input). Connect AO at analog pin (if you want it in analog input).
- Wide detecting scope
- Fast response and High sensitivity
- Stable and long life
- Operating Voltage is +5VDC
- Detect/Measure NH3, NOx, alcohol, Benzene, smoke, CO2, etc.
- Analog output voltage: 0V to 5V
- Digital output voltage: 0V or 5V (TTL Logic)
- Preheat duration 20 seconds
- Can be used as a digital or analog sensor
- The Sensitivity of digital output can be adjusted using on board potentiometer
- The TTL output valid signal is low. (When the output is low, the signal light is on, it can be directly connected to the MCU or relay module)
- The voltage of the analog output, the higher the concentration, the higher the voltage.
- Arduino compatible
- Detection of gas: Ammonia /Sulfide/ Benzene vapor
