I have some of the sensors that do not have the board soldered to the back. I can correct the difference in thickness, but I'm a noob when it comes to circuitry. If I were to implement a TCST2103 without adding an LED, what resistor would I need? Would a 10k ohm resistor on the collector pin going to the Z pin on my board be sufficient?
