MCGS Catalytic Gas Sensor

Designed for use with Gas Sensing Microsystem, or MGSM3000 Gas Sensing Module. Oxidation of the gas of interest creates an increase in the temperature of the sensing element compared with the reference element. The temperature increase raises the resistance of the sensing element which causes a variation in the voltage across the sensing element. This voltage shift is a direct measure of the combustible gas.
