MH Sensor Series

This is an easy to use sensor module you can use to sense the amount of contaminant in surrounding air, giving the reading of air quality index. This is a famous sensor module commonly used with Arduino to build smoke detectors, IoT environment monitoring and smart agricultural projects.

Note : This sensor works with both digital and analog mode. You can connect analog output (AO) to get the air quality index reading (conversion required), or you can connect the digital output (DO) to sense the threshold of air quality. Adjust the potentiometer (a.k.a. trimmer) to set the digital output (DO) sensitivity.
