Power for Kinect Adapter RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Does anyone know how to provide a DC power to the Kinect .

    In my project, this is not possible to provide a AC power to the Kinect. The power jack of the Kinect Adapter is not a standard DC jack. Does anyone have a solution for this?

  • You either need to splice the existing data cable coming from the back of the Kinect and find the 12V lines, or in my view the simpler solution is to take the cover off the Kinect and simply solder your 12V leads to the correct pins (see this discussion!topic/openkinect/fc2Iq9XSkIo )

    I would strongly imagine warranties would be voided in both cases... :)
