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?

  • \$\begingroup\$ so you suggest to mount everything inside an enclosure and let the air to go inside via, let's say, a protected hole on the side as this example? link \$\endgroup\$ – NicoCaldo Jul 3 '19 at 7:42

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
