/ Source: GlobeNewswire

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq:MSCC), a leading manufacturer of high performance analog-mixed signal integrated circuits, high reliability semiconductors and RF subsystems, today announced that Moog Videolarm has selected Microsemi's PowerDsine™ Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) midspans as the exclusive power-delivery solution for its latest POE Ready™ camera housings. Moog Videolarm is a leading designer and manufacturer of innovative, high quality surveillance products.

"Microsemi's PowerDsine midspans are an integral part of our latest POE ReadyTM line of housings, and help simplify installation and maintenance of virtually any fixed or pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) PoE-enabled camera," said Jimmy Pfaffenberger, site general manager, Moog Videolarm. "With Microsemi midspans, our Dynamic Power AllocationTM (DPA) housings provide a complete solution for powering both indoor and outdoor fixed and PTZ cameras over the same Ethernet cable that is used to deliver network data, eliminating the need to locate cameras near power sources or to install costly electrical outlets."

With Moog Videolarm's POE Ready line, only one network cable is required to connect an IEEE802.3at-compliant, high-power PoE IP camera to the network so that it can receive both power and data. The POE Ready housings use Microsemi's PowerDsine 9000G series Midspans to inject power into the data network and enable Moog Videolarm's DPA system to prioritize the distribution of up to 30W of power to the camera, heater, and blower, ensuring uninterrupted camera performance under a wide range of operating conditions.

"We are pleased to be working with one of the world's premier suppliers of high-quality and innovative surveillance products," said Paul Pickle, vice president and general manager of Microsemi's Analog Mixed Signal Group. "Our PowerDsine midspans give Moog Videolarm housings a complete solution for delivering up to 30W of safe power to a wide variety of cameras and related equipment, along with the flexibility to manage, maintain and optimize the power efficiency of the surveillance network using the midspans' remote-management features."

Microsemi's PowerDsine midspans provide a variety of benefits in IP video surveillance applications, including eliminating costly AC outlet installation, enabling network cameras to be deployed in difficult-to-reach locations, and simplifying the job of resetting and repositioning equipment and providing emergency backup power. The midspans' advanced line terminal detection also ensures that a faulty camera or access control terminal can be detected and shut down, preventing damage to expensive switches and patch panels. 

Microsemi's PowerDsine 9000G series midspans are included in selected models of Moog Videolarm's POE Ready housing line.
