V5 Distance Sensor Overheating

Has anyone had issues with the V5 distance sensors overheating and then not working? It’s being used twice throughout the program and by the time it gets to the second stopping point, it doesn’t work and it’s very hot to the touch. Any advice?

We just discovered that issue on one of our distance sensors this week. I hadn’t had a chance to investigate further.

Definitely shouldn’t be very hot and that’s indicative of internal failure. Contact support@vex.com
