Switch for smart lighting systems

The adoption of commercial smart lighting systems has grown significantly as organizations strive to improve energy efficiency and operational costs in buildings. Power over Ethernet (PoE) is rising in popularity for these systems, providing a reliable and easy-to-install solution that manages power and data over a single Ethernet cable. To support larger and more efficient lighting systems, Microchip Technology, via its Microsemi subsidiary, announces a cost-effective eight-port PoE switch that provides guaranteed power of 60 W per port for all eight ports simultaneously. The IEEE 802.3bt-compliant PDS-408G PoE switch runs noise-free with a fanless design, making it well suited for digital ceiling installations.

Designed for enterprise connected lighting applications, the PDS-408G connects separate systems such as lighting, sensors, HVAC and Wi-Fi® access points over a single switch. The switch has eight PoE ports and offers end applications additional cost-savings from energy savings and lower operating expenses. In compliance with IEEE 802.3bt, the PDS-408G provides a total of 480 W, including up to 90 W for any individual port or 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 Rich Simoncic, senior vice president of Microchip´s Analog, Discrete and Power business unit. "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."
