Propane/Gas Detector

Ordered one out of China and unlike everything else I've got from there, this has an instruction manual only in Chinese with no diagram.
5 wires, black, red,, white, green, and yellow. Any ideas on how to wire this?

That sounds like some that I installed years ago that had interconnect between several detectors so that if one went off, they all did.

If you haven't already emailed the seller I would give that a try.

Any other details? Web link? Sounds like it might have both AC and DC input power options.


EDIT: And picture(s) might help.

I think I see what you have.


Red/Black are 12V power on the one's I'm looking at. For the other three, take a multimeter, set it to the mode that detects contact (beeps when you touch the two electrodes), then tap it to the yellow/green/white wires to see if any of them are connected.



Most likely for the one I'm looking at, they're relay leads that allow you to control other 12V appliances in the event the alarm detects gas.

Here is the unit I received, the listing showed it with a blue wire instead of the yellow wire. The seller couldn't help with the language issue, so offered a $1 refund and told me to go to Google.

Yeah, my best guess is Red/Black = 12V DC input, and the rest are relay leads. If you have a multimeter, test it.

Hook up the red and black and squirt some propane at the thing and see if it sings. If so forget the other wires.

Looked at mine tonight in the mh and it is red and black being used and 3 other tails going nowhere, just taped in a bundle.
Has an on/off switch with a green led showing power on. never heard it ever alarm so maybe it doesn't work, but I use the propane quite regularly and see no issues.
