Grove - Gas O₂ Sensor(MIX8410)

enter image description here

Grove - Oxygen Sensor(MIX8410) is a kind of sensor to test the oxygen concentration in air, which is based on the principle of the electrochemical cell to the original work. You can know clearly the current oxygen concentration when you output voltage values proportional to the concentration of oxygen and refer to the oxygen concentration linear characteristic graph. It's very suitable for detecting oxygen concentration in the environment protection. Grove - Oxygen Sensor(MIX8410) is an organic reaction module, it can provide a little current while putting it in the air, we don't need to provide an external power to it, and output voltage will change as time current changes.

Grove - Oxygen Sensor(MIX8410) is a new release version compared to the old one Grove - Oxygen Sensor(ME2-O2-Ф20). So in what areas have we updated? The new version has advanced anti-leakage treatment, which greatly reduces the probability of leakage and solves the problem of leakage in the old version.The output current of the new version is lower, so the electrolyte consumption is slower and the sensor life is longer. In addition, the bottom pins, physical dimensions, top driver board, and usage methods of the new and old versions are the same.


We've released the Seeed Gas Sensor Selection Guide, it will help you choose the gas sensor that best suits your needs.

Voltage Convertor

The XC6206332MR converts 3.3v/5v input to 3.3v.

Current Source

The MIX8410-O2 is current source. The voltage of the label #3 point is R7 * Current(MIX8410-O2).


The gain of the amplifer is 241, SIGA voltage is 241 times of label #3 point voltage.

Here is the correlation between MIX8410 output current and concentration of O2. The current of 20% concentration O2 is around 96uA. So the Grove SIGA voltage @ 20% concentration = R7 * Current(MIX8410) * 241 = 100 * 96uA * 241 = 2.314V.


The current ranage of MIX8410 is 8uA~100uA due to individual difference. So the sensor ouput voltage also will different. Please explosure the sensor to fresh air and get reading of output voltage as reference at beginning. You can refer to this example to get the calibration at beginning and then read the sensor values.

Platforms Supported

Arduino Raspberry Pi


The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's software or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.

Getting Started


This chapter is based on Win10 and Arduino IDE 1.7.9

This new Grove Gas Sensor O2(MIX8410) usage method is exactly the same as the old ME2-O2-Ф20.

This an easy-to-use module, what you need to do is connect the signal pin (the YELLOW pin of Grove cable) to the ADC input of your controller. If there's no internal ADC in your controller, Grove - I2C ADC is recommend.

Here we will show you how this Grove - Oxygen Sensor(MIX8410) works via a simple demo. First of all, you need to prepare the below stuffs:

Thanks to the benefit of Grove series modules, you don't need to make soldering or bread board, what you need to do is connect the modules to the right port of Base Shield. For this demo, we have only one Grove module.

  • Grove - Oxygen Sensor(MIX8410) is an analog input module, we connect it to A0 at this demo

Upload the code to Arduino

Copy the below code to Arduino IDE.

// Grove - Gas Sensor(O2) test code
// Note:
// 1. It need about about 5-10 minutes to preheat the sensor
// 2. modify VRefer if needed

const float VRefer = 3.3;       // voltage of adc reference

const int pinAdc   = A0;

void setup() 
    // put your setup code here, to run once:
    Serial.println("Grove - Oxygen Sensor(MIX8410) Test Code...");

void loop() 
    // put your main code here, to run repeatedly:
    float Vout =0;
    Serial.print("Vout =");

    Vout = readO2Vout();
    Serial.print(" V, Concentration of O2 is ");

float readO2Vout()
    long sum = 0;
    for(int i=0; i<32; i++)
        sum += analogRead(pinAdc);

    sum >>= 5;

    float MeasuredVout = sum * (VRefer / 1023.0);
    return MeasuredVout;

float readConcentration()
    // Vout samples are with reference to 3.3V
    float MeasuredVout = readO2Vout();

    //float Concentration = FmultiMap(MeasuredVout, VoutArray,O2ConArray, 6);
    //when its output voltage is 2.0V,
    float Concentration = MeasuredVout * 0.21 / 2.0;
    float Concentration_Percentage=Concentration*100;
    return Concentration_Percentage;

Then choose the right Board and COM port, and then click on the Upload button, this process take few seconds.

Get data

Open serial monitor of your Arduino IDE, and you will get the data now.


It need about 20~30 minutes to preheat the sensor, or you will get a larger value.
