I'm in search of a Gas detector sensor for outdoor use and I've found this sensor. My only concern is how do I mount it for outdoor use as, on the datasheet, there's no information about the mounting. Do you think I need to put inside some sort of enclosure or can I mount it with the head of the sensor in direct contact with the outside air?
The best solution I've found out is to have emitter and sensor inside an enclosure. The enclosure will have a protected hole so environment air can be detected without damaging the sensors.
I took an example from here
