MQ-3 Alcohol Ethanol Gas Sensor Guide

The MQ-3 sensor is one of the most commonly used sensors in the MQ sensor series. It is a chemiresisotors because sensing is based on the change of resistance of the sensing material when it is exposed to alcohol.  In this article, we will talk about how to wire and set up the module for operation with an Arduino Board.   Wiring  MQ-03 alcohol sensor operates at 5V DC and draws around 800mW. It can detect alcohol concentrations anywhere from 25ppm to 500 ppm. It comes with both the digital and analog output pins. The analog output voltage provided by...
