Overview

Y-adapter is used to supply power to OAK cameras through USB-C connector. Note that in most cases, host computer is able to provide enough current (>1A) and you don't need a Y-adapter. Y-adapter is only needed in cases where host is not able to provide enough current:
  • For Pro versions (OAK-D Pro, OAK-D Pro PoE), where IR LED and dot projector can draw up to 1A alone
  • In case you are using small SBC like Raspberry Pi, and OAK camera isn't the only USB device that's drawing power
Some older versions of OAK cameras (OAK-D, OAK-FFC 4P, (OAK-D CM4) have power barrel jack for supplying power (instead of the Y-adapter), while newer OAK USB cameras only have USB-C connector - which is why we developed the Y-adapter.

Getting started

  1. Connect host computer to the Y-adapter's USB-C data port via USB-C cable
  2. Connect 5V voltage (eg. standard USB wall charger) to the Y-adapter's USB-C power port via USB-C cable
  3. Insert Y-adapter to the OAK device via USB-C connector
