CO Gas Sensor
The CO (Carbon Monoxide) Gas Sensor Module compatible with this support for gaz sensor is designed to allow a microcontroller like the BasicStamp that is included on the BOE-Bot robot, to determine when a preset CO gas level has been reached or exceeded. Interfacing with the sensor module is done through a 4-pin SIP header and requires two I/O pins from the host microcontroller. The sensor module is mainly intended to provide a means of comparing carbon monoxide sources and being able to set an alarm limit when the source becomes excessive.
Note: Parallax does not provide gas calibration data on the module and such data and alarm setting is the responsibility of the user to define. For information on user calibration please see the PDF documentation of the Carbon monoxide Gas Sensor Module.
Precautions: Be aware that high concentrations of carbon monoxide can be deadly. Always be careful to perform gas tests in well-ventilated areas. This CO Gas Sensor Module in not designated for or approved for any application involving health or human safety. This CO Gas Sensor Module is for experimental purposes only.
