The OAK-D-PoE baseboard offers full 802.3af, Class 3 PoE compliance with 1000BASE-T speeds. The OAK-D-POE baseboard has three on-board cameras which implement stereo and RGB vision, piped directly into the DepthAI SoM for depth and AI processing. The data is then output to a host via USB 3.1 Gen1 (Type-C) or via 1000BASE-T ethernet connection. Ther OAK-D-POE board exposes boot selection switches, allowing the end user to boot the OAK-SoM-Pro module from USB or the on-board eMMC or NOR flash.

Minimal and maximal perceiving distances of the camera

Minimal depth perceiving distance of the camera depends on mono camera FOV, resolution, baseline and stereo depth mode, more info is available on the Stereo Depth documentation.

OAK-D-PoE has a baseline of 7.5cm and by varying the resolution and stereo depth mode, we get the following minimal depth perceiving distances:

  • Min distance (800P): ~ 70cm

  • Min distance (400P): ~ 35cm

  • Min distance with extended disparity (800P): ~ 35cm

  • Min distance with extended disparity (400P): ~ 19.6cm

Maximal perceiving distance for OAK-D-PoE: 38.4 meters

For more information about the maximum distance see the Stereo Depth documentation.

Power usage

Power usage for OAK-D-PoE ranges between 2.00 W (standby) and 5.5 W (max consumption). More information on the power usage is below:

  • Standby: 2.00 W

  • Normal operation (running python depthai_demo.py): 5.25 W

  • Max consumption power (running python depthai_demo.py -s left right color disparity rectified_left depth): 5.50 W


Getting started


For more information on how to start with POE devices, check our guide Getting started with PoE.

The OAK-D-POE accepts power input from any 802.3af, Class 3 PoE circuitry. So this for example includes any/every PoE UniFi Switch (e.g. US-8-150W) and any other standard POE switch and/or 802.3af PoE injector. Power consumption is typically 5W, leaving ~7.5W available if active lighting is desired additionally over PoE/etc.

If an outdoor rated PoE switch is needed, one option is the EP-S16.

Interfacing with the OAK-SoM-Pro is also possible with PoE board connector pads J5 which expose OAK-SoM-Pro auxiliary I/O. This header is Amphenol/FCI 20021121-00010T1LF or equivalent. Please refer to the schematics for pinout information.

The reset button resets the OAK-SoM-Pro only. The 5V LED indicates 5V power is present on the PoE Board. The PG LED indicates “power good” from the OAK-SoM-Pro. The “RUN” LED indicates that the OAK-SoM-Pro is not in reset.

Caution should be taken when handling any PoE circuit board. Do not directly touch the circuitry as potentials up to and exceeding 57V may exist. Always use electronics handling best practices.
