Capacitive Touch Hat Sensor


I ordered a capacitive touch hat sensor and it arrived yesterday. I am trying to connect it to my raspberry pi, however, when I connect it via the GPIO prongs and plug power into the pi and the touch hat becomes quite hot quite quickly (in the middle, specifically on the black square) and I have even burnt my finger when trying to touch it. I’m guessing this isn’t normal and wondering whether the product is faulty or I am connecting it to the pi incorrectly.

Hi Jess,

Hmm, sounds strange, could you post a couple of photos of your setup?
