The touch sensor responds to contact with the skin.

Output: This module usually produces 0 V. With contact, it generates 5 V. Connect the sensor to an input on the Arduino™ via the TinkerKit shield.

Description of the module: On the back of the unit there is a signal amplifier, a capacitor, a green LED to indicate that the module is operating correctly and a yellow LED, whose brightness depends on the values generated by the module.

The device calibrates itself automatically when it is switched on. If the surface is touched when the sensor is being switched on, it will not work. To reset the device, switch it off and then on again. Ensure that the surface is not touched.

This module is a sensor. The connector is an OUTPUT, which must be connected to an INPUT on the TinkerKit shield.
