Industrial Ethernet Switches
SCALANCE X Industrial Ethernet Switches for all industrial requirements
Powerful industrial communication networks are the foundation for digitalization. Within these networks, data must be systematically and reliably distributed across all levels. Industrial Ethernet Switches are perfect for the job. With SCALANCE X, Siemens offers several product lines with different functional scopes depending on the specific networking task – the right switch for every application.
TIA Selection Tool
Select and configure your Industrial Ethernet Switches
Thanks to the use of intelligent configurators and selection assistants, the TIA Selection Tool makes error-free configuration possible without specific know-how – and provides reliable assistance with the selection of Industrial Ethernet Switches. This can be done directly from the portfolio overview, by entering your technical requirements, or based on the type of application. Integrated configurators help you select modules and accessories, and assist with checking correct operation and the ordering process.
Why choosing SCALANCE X for industrial switching?With SCALANCE X Industrial Ethernet Switches you can utilize unique flexibility in the design of your network topology. Our portfolio offers you a wide range of industrial switches, with copper or fiber optic ports, for the control cabinet or for use in harsh environments – and with data rates of up to 10 Gigabit.
Benefit from a wide range of functions
How do I find the right Industrial Ethernet Switch?
Industrial Ethernet Switches come in countless forms and variants: managed or unmanaged, as control cabinet switches or compact variants, with layer 2 or layer 3 functionality, and much more. But which is the right one for your requirements?
If you need a cost-effective solution for simple machine networking or small electrical or optical Ethernet networks, you will find the right unmanaged switches with our SCALANCE X-000 and SCALANCE X-100 product families. If you need high network availability and have greater demands regarding functionality and design, our flexible and powerful managed layer 2 switches SCALANCE X-200 and X-300 are the right solution for machine-oriented applications and for networking systems in line, star and ring structures. Maximum flexibility and highest network availability are offered by our layer 2 and layer 3 switches for large networks SCALANCE X-400 and X-500.
The foundation for secure networks : TÜV certification demonstrates the security of network components
Siemens has received TÜV certification in compliance with IEC 62443-4-2 and -4-1 for network components in the Scalance XB-200, XC-200, XP-200, XF-200BA and XR-300WG product families. Customers are therefore able to realize secure system architectures, which clearly increases the overall security of a plant.
The certification demonstrates that the product development process previously certified has been consequently applied during product development of above-mentioned SCALANCE X-product lines. It also confirms that key technical product requirements have been taken into account and implemented in the network components.
More than just industrial switchingPowerful and reliable industrial communications networks are more than just the sum of components used. Our longstanding experience, combined with solid industry know-how makes us your ideal partner for future-proof industrial networks.
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept. For more information about industrial security, please visit.
