Ethernet communication via 2-, 4- or 8-wire cable
Connection for new and existing plants
Use existing plant cabling for Ethernet communication and save having to lay new cables.
Connect remote nodes to Ethernet networks using 2-, 4- or 8-wire cables. Or make it easier to convert from PROFIBUS to PROFINET.
Overcome the 100 m limitation for Ethernet cables, e.g. with any two-wire cables for Ethernet cables up to 1000 m.
Connections via corresponding Industrial Ethernet Switches SCALANCE XF‑200BA with BusAdapter, SCALANCE X-300 and the media module MM992-2VD or via the router SCALANCE M826-2 are possible.
