Microsemi Introduces Its First Industrial-rated Power-over-Ethernet Midspans

New Systems Leverage Company's PoE Leadership to Support Outdoor Network Infrastructure and Industrial Applications

ALISO VIEJO, Calif., – Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor and system solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced the availability of its PD-9001GI and PD-9501GI Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) midspan injectors, expanding the company's industry-leading PoE product offering into new industrial and outdoor applications. The PD-9001GI and PD-9501GI industrial PoE midspans are targeted at applications including physical security, WLAN infrastructure, cellular infrastructure and industrial automation.

"We are pleased to offer our first industrial-rated PoE midspans supporting both outdoor and industrial applications that address emerging trends and provide the market with high-quality solutions at an affordable price," said Sani Ronen, director of product management for Microsemi's PoE systems. "In addition to demonstrating our overall commitment to this market, these new midspan systems further extend our broad portfolio of PoE solutions, providing Microsemi with new applications and new revenue opportunities as we deliver our customers the benefits of PoE deployment in multiple types of environments."

According to market research firm Technavio, the number of industrial Ethernet nodes deployed worldwide is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.52 percent over the 2014-2019 period. As Microsemi continues to expand its growing industrial-level PoE product portfolio, it will continue to develop unique solutions catered to demanding applications in this market.

Target applications for Microsemi's new devices include industrial and outdoor Internet protocol (IP) cameras, Wi-Fi access points (APs), cellular small cells, wireless backhaul, access control devices including human machine interface (HMI), motors and industrial sensors. The rise in IP cameras in the industrial manufacturing process to maximize video transmission bandwidth while minimizing the deployment costs and amount of wiring required has contributed to the growth of PoE and gigabit Ethernet in factory automation. The PD-9001GI and PD-9501GI conform to IEEE 802.3-2012 Clause 33 "Power over Ethernet," enabling reliable operation and easy plug-and-play with intelligent management of devices. These PoE midspans can be used to easily deploy industrial or outdoor devices over Ethernet while ensuring a low cost of deployment. Both systems have achieved certification for use in industrial and outdoor applications, ensuring safe, reliable performance with maximum protection. In outdoor deployments the PD-9501GI and PD-9001GI are deployed inside enclosures, complementing non-PoE switches.

About Microsemi's PD-9001GI and PD-9501GI

The PD-9001GI and PD-9501GI are both single-port, high power solutions designed for industrial and outdoor applications demanding extended temperature ranges, and are ideal for remote powering of current and emerging high power applications. With the PD-9001GI sourcing up to 30 watts (W) and the PD-9501GI sourcing up to 60 W, both systems  enable remote power for applications including 802.11 APs, pan-tilt zoom (PTZ) cameras and other AP terminals. They comply with IEEE802.3-2012 Clause 33 Type 2 (a.k.a. IEEE 802.3at) and can power Type 1 (a.k.a. IEEE 802.3af) devices. In addition, the PoE midspan injectors feature dual direct current (DC) inputs, support 10/100/1000 Mbps and offer an easy plug-and-play installation.

Additional features of Microsemi's two new industrial PoE midspans include:

--  -40 degrees to 75 degrees Celsius operating temperature range

--  IP30 slim type metal case

--  DIN RAIL and wall mount option (included)

--  LED indication: two input power, PoE, fault

--  Input power: 20-60VDC, terminal block
