I was wondering if there was an alternative to using HOT GLUE to protect the “back” of the sensor?
A week ago I purchased a sensor and it worked great. Until I put the recommended hot glue on it.
Since then it stopped working. I attempted to remove the wad of hardened hot glue and some of it remained embedded.
(and no…there was no glue obscuring the LED on the front.)
I don’t want to go into the pro and cons of buying microcircuitry that requires the end user to protect the product with hot glue…but I would love to know if there was another way to accomplish the same goal. I have purchased a replacement and I am loathe to throw another 30$ away on a third. This is for a science project and time is running out…
No public wish lists :(
