Sharp IR sensor Issue with connector

by davgao on Thu Apr 28, 2016 8:09 pm

Hi engineers,

I recently purchased a sharp long range IR sensor from the site. https://www.adafruit.com/products/1568

The JST interface wire that came with the product broke almost instantly though. I can't find this model of connector anywhere, they seem to not make this anymore. The product description on the Adafruit site says 6 pin but It is 5 pins as pictured. Is there any way to get a replacement somehow? I am relying on this for a class project.

Post a photo of the broken plug and contact support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread and they will help you out.

Ok I will do that, but I did contact support a few times and they told me to post on the forums even though this is not an engineering problem, it's a a defective part.
