    Hi there - I just burned one of those by connecting it as follows: pin1 to +5V, pin3 to ground, collector (pin2) to the analog input of a PIC ds30f4011.
    Obviously I did something wrong. I am ordering a new one but would like to know how to properly connect these sensors? It seems other people had this issue (http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1234777997/30) but I could not really find a satisfactory answer over there - and this information would be handy on this page (mis-configuration of the PIC analog input is unlikely: it does measure voltage properly when using regular resistors). I did verify the collector pin with a ohmmeter before wiring…
    Any advice?
    Thanks!
