Active network components for Industrial EthernetSCALANCE X is the new product family of the Industrial Ethernet Switches from SIMATIC NET. A class of its own in each product line. Switches are active network components that distribute defined data packages to the respective recipients.
The SCALANCE X product family consists of four product lines, graded to performance and adapted to the various automation tasks.
Industrial Ethernet Entry Level SCALANCE X-005 unmanaged
Low-cost solution for creating small star or line topologies with switching functionality.
SCALANCE X-100 unmanaged - fully industrial basic design
Switches with up to 24 ports and on-site diagnosis for use in the vicinity of machines.
LANCE X-100 unmanaged media converter
Media converter for converting various transmission media in Industrial Ethernet line, star and ring topologies.
SCALANCE X-200 managed - the powerful all-rounder
For universal use in the vicinity of machines right up to integration in networked plant segments. Configuring and remote diagnosis can be handled with the SIMATIC STEP 7 engineering tool. This increases plant availability. Devices with a high degree of protection permit cabinet-free design.
SCALANCE X-200IRT - isochrone real-time
For use in plant segment networks with strict real-time demands (Isochrone Real-Time) and maximum availability. Data communication without real-time requirements can be handled in the same network. No redundant network structures required.
SCALANCE X-300 compact high-performance switch
Efficient compact version for use in high-performance plant networks (Gigabit Ethernet). Offers a wider range of functions compared to the X-200 (IT functionality).
SCALANCE X-400 - modular high-performance switch
For use in high-performance plant networks that come up to future requirements (e.g. high-speed redundancy). Thanks to the modular design, the switches can be adapted to the task at hand. Office standards are supported to enable seamless integration of automation networks in office networks.
