The Sparkfun LPG Gas Sensor - MQ-6 is a highly efficient and easy-to-use sensor designed for detecting liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) concentrations in the air. Comprising mostly of propane and butane, the MQ-6 can accurately detect gas concentrations ranging from 200 to 10000ppm.

The MQ-6 stands out due to its high sensitivity and quick response time. It generates an analog resistance as output, making the drive circuit extremely straightforward. All that's required is a 5V power supply to the heater coil, a load resistance, and the output connected to an ADC.

Designed in a package similar to the Sparkfun MQ-3 alcohol sensor, the MQ-6 can be conveniently used with the breakout board mentioned below. This sensor's compact design and simple operation make it an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.

For those interested in learning more about the MQ-6 and its operation, Sparkfun offers a comprehensive tutorial on hazardous gas monitoring. This tutorial provides valuable insights into the workings of the sensor and how to make the most of its features.

Furthermore, Sparkfun provides detailed documentation for the MQ-6, including a datasheet and a wiring example. These resources can be incredibly helpful for those looking to understand the sensor's functionality in-depth and to integrate it into their projects effectively.
