Volatile Organic Components sensor

The MiCS-5521 is a resistive sensor that responds to a great variety of gases, such as Carbon Monoxide (CO), Hydrocarbons and Volatile Organic Compounds. It’s resistance varies between 1000kΩ and 2kΩ approximately. Like the MiCS-2610, the MiCS-5521 is powered through a 2.5V voltage regulator, with consumption of approximately 32mA. The sensor’s resistance in air, as well as its sensitivity, can vary between different units, so it is recommended to calibrate each one of them before finally inserting them in the application.
