Compact Ethernet switch and switch module
SCALANCE X-000 and CSM for simple machine networking
Simple, space-saving, industry-grade: With our SCALANCE X-000 switches you will always find the right compact switch for simple machine networking. Compact Switch Modules (CSM) are available for cost-effective connection of SIMATIC controllers. This allows an easy integration of machines into existing plants.

The compact switch in space-saving, industry-grade design
SCALANCE X-000 compact switch is the space-saving, entry-level solution for setting up small Industrial Ethernet networks. It has 5x RJ45 ports and can be integrated into the network as an unmanaged switch without configuration.
As a compact Ethernet switch, SCALANCE X005 supports space-saving installation in a control cabinet on a standard DIN rail, but can also be mounted directly on a wall. Due to its robust metal housing, it is ideally suited for use in harsh industrial environments, as well as in rail and road traffic.

Watch this video to learn how you can flexibly construct industrial network topologies using SCALANCE X-000 compact switches – leaving you fully prepared for the demands you can expect from the Internet of Things and the networking of communications-capable machines in the future.
Small, compact and low-cost
The compact SCALANCE XB-000 switches enable the cost-effective setup of networks with gigabit transmission, e.g. for high-resolution camera systems. They can achieve transmission over distances up to 26 km with fiber-optic cables.
The SCALANCE XB-000 compact switch with plastic housing is designed for use in less demanding industrial environments from -10°C to +60°C. The SCALANCE XB004-1, XB004-1LD and XB005 versions with 24 V AC power supply can also be used for applications, including building automation and much more.
More connectivity to SIMATIC at a low cost
Use our Compact Switch Modules (CSM) to increase the number of interfaces directly on the SIMATIC S7, ET 200M or LOGO! logic modules at low cost – and increase the number of potential connections at the same time.
A space-saving design that’s just right for industrial use makes the CSM ideal for use in all control cabinet applications. The LED status display on the device helps with fast and easy diagnostics.
FastConnect – a cabling system gets the hang
Structured cabling is the basis of an industrial bus system or network, and must fulfill much higher requirements than cabling in the office area. Stringent demands are placed on the installation of cables in the industrial environment. For Compact Switch Modules, Siemens offers FastConnect, a system that fulfills all these requirements: On-site assembly – quick, easy and error-free.
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.
