Presenting MQ sensors: lowcost gas and pollution ...

16/02/2018· Features of the MQ sensors . Most sensors of the MQ series operate with working voltages that are typically at 5V, and have a lower absorption of 1 watt (5V here means less than 200 milliampere); such an absorption is mainly due to the heating element drawing power. As for some MQ sensors, the heater is powered at 2V: a low and atypical voltage, that we might obtain by using a …

How to Build a MQ2 Smoke Sensor Circuit with a Raspberry Pi

The gas sensor needs about 5 volts of power in order to operate. This is done by connecting 5 volts to Vcc and GND. The Output pin gives out the voltage reading, which is proportional to the amount of smoke that the sensor is exposed to. Again, a high voltage output means the sensor is exposed to a lot of smoke. A low or 0 voltage output means the sensor is exposed to either little or no smoke ...
