This is a gas detecting circuit capable of sensing many different types of gases.
The sensor used is the GH-312 and from the datasheet it is capable of sensing gases like smoke, liquefied gas, butane and propane, Methane, alcohol,hydrogen, etc.

GH-312 Gas Sensor
The first tests were made with the circuit mounted on a breadboard. After initialization the circuit will enter a normal state where it detects no gas. The display shows “Sensing…No Gas !”.
To test the sensor I used my portable gas soldering iron with the gas coming out pointed to the sensor.
The sensor is able to detect the gas and the microcontroller will trigger a flashing led warning and sound.
The sound is produced by a small piezo and the display show the message “Found Gas”.
When the air is clean again and the sensor does not sense any gas, the circuit will return to it’s normal state turning off both led and piezo sound.
Circuit is Initializing
It’s a pretty cheap and easy to assemble circuit.
Does not require too many parts and the microcontroller is very easy to find ( the famous 16F84A from microchip ).
Since it’s used a small lcd ( 8×2 ) this project can be portable.
Also this sensor senses several types of gas and it’s pretty stable.
The code is provided in hex format: GASDEMO.hex, We are sorry the source code isn’t available.
can i have the coding..please email me the code as soon as possible..coz this is my final project..thnks you..
The source code for this project isn’t available. You can download the .hex file from above.
could you help me the source code for this project..how can i contact you??
Please contact the author above.
Link to .hex file above is fixed.
i want the code for this pic to make this project
How can MQ -216 scale sensor instead of sensor GH-312 use?
where is the program?
The source code isn’t available from the author. Only .hex file is available.
i make this project but it is not working … i use mq2 for the gas sensor .. how can i fix this? because it is my final project?
This will work only with GH-312 gas sensor.
