30-Watt power over Ethernet introduced by Microsemi for surveillance cameras and other outdoor applications

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., 8 Sept. 2011. The Microsemi Corp. (Nasdaq:MSCC) Integrated Circuit Group in Aliso Viejo, Calif., is introducing the PowerDsine PD-9001GO power over Ethernet midspan that delivers as much as 30 Watts of power at speeds to 1 gigabit-per-second data rates over standard Ethernet cabling for IP surveillance cameras, wireless LAN access points, and similar outdoor devices. The PowerDsine PD-9001GO supports the IEEE 802.3at high-power standard at 10/100/1000 megabit-per-second data rates, and is backward-compatible with the earlier low-power IEEE 802.3af standard, Microsemi officials say.

"The single-port PowerDsine PD-9001GO midspan solves the power-deployment problem in outdoor locations where an electrical outlet is typically not available and equipment must be able to withstand lightning and extreme temperature and humidity conditions," says Sani Ronen, senior product line manager for Microsemi's PowerDsine midspans.
