Power Connector Installation Instructions

The instructions below walk you through connecting your TinyPilot Power Connector to your Raspberry Pi and target computer.

  1. Use a short USB-C to USB-A cable to connect the USB-C port on the Raspberry Pi to the USB-A port on the TinyPilot Power Connector.

  1. Connect a microUSB to USB-A cable to the port labeled "Power" on the TinyPilot Power Connector. Connect the other end to a 5 V / 3 Amp USB power adaptor and plug it into a power outlet.

Only use the TinyPilot power connector with power supplies that provide power isolation. Virtually all modern power supplies isolate power, but if you're working with especially old (20+ years) or low-quality hardware, verify that it's power isolated.
  1. Connect a microUSB to USB-A cable to the port labeled "Data" on the TinyPilot Power Connector. Connect the other end to a USB port on your target computer.

If everything is connected correctly, you should see the Pi's power LED shine a solid red. The disk activity LED will flash green intermittently as the device runs.
