MQ2 gas sensor can be used to detect the presence of LPG, Propane and Hydrogen, also could be used to detect Methane and other combustible steam, it is with low cost and suitable for different application. Sensor is sensitive to flammable gas and smoke. Smoke sensor is given 5 volt to power it. Smoke sensor indicate smoke by the voltage that it outputs .More smoke more output. A potentiometer is provided to adjust the sensitivity. Sn02 is the sensor used which is of low conductivity when the air is clean. But when smoke exist, an analog output is produced based on the concentration of smoke.  The circuit has a heater. Power is given to heater by VCC and GND from power supply. The circuit has a variable resistor. The resistance across the pin depends on the smoke in air in the sensor. The resistance will be lowered if the content is more. And voltage is increased between the sensor and load resistor.



  • Wide range sensitivity to combustible gas.
  • Better sensitivity to Propane, LPG and Hydrogen
  • Low cost and better life
  • Drive circuit is simple.
  • Sensor Type : Semiconductor
  • Concentration : 300-10000ppm ( Combustible gas)
  • Supply voltage =5v


  • Safety of home
  • Control of air quality
  • Measurement of gas level
