Use the versatile SCALANCE X-200 Industrial Ethernet switches for your applications from machine-level up to networked units:

SCALANCE XC-200

Flexible for general applications

The SCALANCE XC-200 Industrial Ethernet switches offer many functions: Virtual LANs (VLAN), redundancy mechanisms and optional complete PROFINET or Ethernet/IP diagnostics in one device.

Using the Fast Ethernet and Gigabit versions, powerful, reliable Industrial Ethernet networks can be established, and electrical and optical topologies likewise. For bandwidth-intensive applications, e.g. in tunnels, or high-availability control concepts, the SCALANCE XC-200G Gigabit versions are the ideal choice.

Thanks to a wide range of features, such as an extended temperature range (‐40° C to +70° C) and approvals for railway applications (trackside) and explosion-proof areas (ATEX Zone 2, IECEx), the various SCALANCE XC‐200 switches can be flexibly deployed in a variety of environments: machine construction, the automotive industry, the food and beverages industry, along rail-mounted routes in tunnels with video transmission, e.g. for height checks, or in the oil and gas industry.

Redundant connection of multiple machine parts with SCALANCE XC-200

In addition, optical lines can be monitored for wear and tear or contamination with the Fiber Monitoring function, thus avoiding downtimes.

Advantages

  • Robust housing and extended temperature range (-40 °C to 70 °C)

  • Gigabit-capable and bridging up to 200 km

  • Trackside railway approval (EN 50121-4) and use in hazardous areas (ATEX Zone 2, IECEx)

  • Optional support of real-time communication via PROFINET or Ethernet/IP

  • Prevention of downtimes caused by contaminated or worn optical connections by means of Fiber Monitoring.

  • Use as a Service Bridge for maintenance of machines and systems together with SCALANCE SC-600 is also ensured.
