CHANDLER, AZ. Microchip Technology Inc., via its Microsemi subsidiary, released its IEEE 802.3bt-compliant PDS-408G PoE switch.
The PDS-408G is designed to connect separate systems including lighting, sensors, HVAC and Wi-Fi access points on one switch and supplies up to 480 W, including a 90 W capacity for any individual port or an evenly distributed 60 W for eight ports simultaneously.
“Demand for Power over Ethernet in connected lighting systems has accelerated, and our new PoE switch is designed specifically for the needs of these applications,” said Microchip’s Analog, Discrete and Power business unit senior VP, Rich Simoncic. “The PDS-408G continues Microchip’s leadership in PoE technology, providing an IEEE 802.3bt-compliant solution that provides almost six times the amount of power than the original PoE standard.”
