MQ-9B Semiconductor Sensor for Carbon Monoxide & Flammable Gas Detection

For civil and industrial CO & flammable gas leakage detection

Applications :

*CO & CH4 gas alarm
*CO&CH4 gas detector

Product Advantages:
  • *Low cost
  • *10 years lifetime
  • *Fast response time
  • *Simple drive circuit
Product Description:

Sensitive material of MQ-9B gas sensor is SnO2, which with lower conductivity in clean air. It detects carbon monoxide (1.5V) by method of cycle high and low temperature. At high temperature (5.0V), it can detect CO as well as clean the other gases adsorbed at low temperature. The sensor’s conductivity gets higher along with the CO and CH4 gas concentration rising. Users can convert the change of conductivity to correspond output signal of gas concentration through a simple circuit.
