No 5v on "5v_in" usb XBee adapter

by spoggles on Wed May 05, 2021 5:52 pm

I have no 5 volts from my USB connection on the "5v_in" pin on the adapter. I have been able to use the 5v from the USB cable on other products from Adafruit by connecting to the "USB/5v" pins. Is this normal for this particular product?

There are diodes on both the USB VBUS and the 5v IN lines to avoid conflicts in the event that both a 5v supply and a USB connection are present. So 5v IN is an input only.
