Module Description: on the back of the module you can find a signal amplifier, a capacitor, a QT 100A single touch controller, a green LED that signals that the module is correctly powered and a yellow LED whose brightness depends on the values output by the module.

Please note this device performs an auto calibration when it is turned on, so if someone is touching the switch surface when it is turned on it will not work. To reset, cycle power and make sure no one is touching it as you restart.

This module is a SENSOR. The connector is an OUTPUT which must be connected to one of the INPUT connectors on the TinkerKit Shield.
