MP-3B model with advanced planar construction is comprised of heater and metal oxide semiconductor material of subminiature Al2O3 ceramic plate, fetch out electrode down-lead, encapsulation in metal base and cap. When the target gas (alcohol) exists , The sensor’s conductivity is more higher along with the gas concentration rising. Please use simple electrocircuit, Convert change of conductivity to correspond output signal of gas concentration.


It is used for detecting whether the driver and other people who drink alcohol, or detecting whether ethanol steamy exist in other places.


  • Lower consumption
  • Small size
  • Fast response and resume
  • Highest sensitivity
  • Excellent stability and long life
  • Easy circuit and big signal output
  • Excellent selectivity

Technical Support:

Customized technical design and function, LOGO and package are available without extra charge (including molding fee) for mass volume.

The sensors don't have sleeping mode. It can be set in program if needed.

All Winsen products go through strict inspections and tests to make sure they are 100% qualified before shipping out.

The sensor has been fully tested (not calibrated) before leaving the factory. However, after transportation and storage, the environment conditions change, and the surface of the sensor absorbs moisture, mixed gas, pollution matters, etc. It is recommended that customers perform aging and calibration after sensors become stable according to the program and use occasions of the whole device.

15﹪-90﹪RH without condensation,greater or less than this range or long-term high temperature and high humidity will affect the life of the sensor.

Our sensors are certified with CE, 3C, ROHS, anti-explosion, fire prevention, and coal mining safety according to different applications. And we provide assistance for new certification.

Many factors can cause the sensor to fail such as broken wires in transportation, poisoning, falling off of the sensitive material, damage to the heating wire (device), etc. Please find specific cause in each category with Winsen’s aftersales.

Winsen provides professional consultation and service before and after sales. We will recommend the best fitting sensor for your demand. If you have any problem, don’t hesitate to email us to
