Hydrogen Gas Sensor MQ8 for measuring the concentration of Hydrogen (H2) in the air. Suitable for measuring concentrations from 100 to 10,000 ppm. Easy to implement heater drive and measuring circuit. This sensor is designed for long life and stable output.
Sensitive material of MQ-8 gas sensor is SnO2, which with lower conductivity in clean air. When hydrogen gas exists, the sensor’s conductivity gets higher along with the gas concentration rising. Users can convert the change of conductivity to correspond output
signal of gas concentration through a simple circuit. MQ-8 gas sensor has high sensitivity to hydrogen gas, also has anti-interference to other gases. This sensor can detect hydrogen, especially city gas. It is a kind of low-cost sensor for kinds of applications.
Detection Range 100-10,000 ppm
Heater voltage 5V
Pins 6mm High
It is widely used in domestic gas leakage alarm, industrial flammable gas alarm and portable gas detector.
