What does it take to make a breathalyzer?
Well, you can start with equipping yourself with the latest alcohol detecting click, the Alcohol 3 Click board™!
The Alcohol 3 click is a gas sensor Click board™, equipped with the MiCS-5524 - a compact metal oxide (MOS) sensor. This sensor reacts to the presence of deoxidizing and reducing gases, such as ethanol (also known as alcohol). Its impedance changes as a result of a catalytic reaction, allowing it to be used in a voltage divider configuration. The voltage can be sampled by an accurate A/D converter (ADC), allowing the data to be read directly over the I2C interface.
A robust sensor, the MiCS-5524 can be used in harsh environments for gas leakage detection, in breath checking applications, early fire detection, etc.
The Click board™ represents an ideal solution for rapid development of all kinds of breathalyzer applications, gas leakage applications, fire detection applications, CO detectors, and similar reducing gasses detecting applications.
