Electronic Circuit
Component List
  1. Arduino UNO
  2. MQ5 LPG Sensor
MQ5 LPG Sensor (Circuitstoday)

Electronic circuit like in Figure 1 above is Interfacing MQ5 LPG Sensor to Arduino UNO circuit. According Circuitstoday site that published this circuit describe that this is pretty simple. Connect the D0 pin of MQ5 module to any digital pin of arduino. Lets connect D0 to pin 7 of arduino. Now we need to give power supply (Vcc) and complete the circuit by connecting to ground (Gnd). Refer the circuit diagram given below. Take a +5V connection from arduino and connect it to Vcc of MQ5 module. Finally connect the GND pin of MQ5 module to GND of arduino. That’s all and we have finished the circuit.


To Interface MQ5 LPG Sensor to Arduino UNO, you need some skill as follow:
  1. Basic soldering.
  2. Read a basic schematic.
  3. Assembling electronic component
  4. Design PCB layout
  5. Testing voltage and current
  6. Know GSM module SIM900 component
  7. Microcontroller AT89S51 basic
  8. Microcontroller AT89S51 programming
Tools and Material

In this project, you must prepare some tools and material that used as the supporting to Interface MQ5 LPG Sensor to Arduino UNO as follow:
  1. Tools: soldering iron, cutter, multitester, and Project Board.
  2. Material: Tin, PCB
  3. Software like Proteus 8, PCB Wizard

When you want to realize this Interface MQ5 LPG Sensor to Arduino UNO circuit into real application, you can build it as like design PCB layout using good software as like: PCB Wizard and to simulate and download this program to microcontroller you can use Proteus, AVR Studio 4, MIDE 51. 
How to do?
