With industry-standard design
The robust unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switches SCALANCE XC-100 with electrical and/or optical port variants enable cost-optimized networking at the machine level. With SCALANCE X108PoE, you also save on installation costs thanks to integrated Power-over-Ethernet functionality: Data and power are transferred over a single cable (Railway approval EN 50155).
SCALANCE XC-100 switches are designed for use in control cabinets. They can withstand harsh ambient conditions and can be used in extreme temperatures from -40°C to +70°C and in areas at risk of explosion rated Zone 2 in accordance with ATEX and IECEx.

See the video to learn how you can flexibly construct electrical and optical industrial network topologies at low cost using SCALANCE X-100 – and be fully prepared for the demands you can expect from every aspect of the Internet of Things (IoT) and networking of communications-capable machines in the future.
The cost-optimized, space-saving rack switch
The cost-optimized unmanaged SCALANCE XR-100WG 19" rack switches (work group) have a small mounting depth, which means two switches can be installed on both sides to save space in the control cabinet.
SCALANCE XR-100WG switches are ideally suited for a wide variety of industry-related applications and control rooms. They have up to 24 Fast Ethernet ports, and the 24 V DC versions with a redundant power supply can deliver reliable operation, even during power failures.
Versatile switch for industry and buildings
SCALANCE XB-100 unmanaged Industrial Ethernet switches have a high port density with up to 24 x RJ45 ports and a data rate of 10/100 Mbit/s. Their plastic housing keeps their weight low, and their compact design makes them ideal for installation in control cabinets. Versions with fiber-optic connections enable setup of both electrical as well as optical line and star topologies, even in areas at risk of explosion.
All SCALANCE XB-100 devices are ideally suited for industrial use thanks to their redundant 24 V DC power supply. Their 24 V AC (50/60 Hz) power supply also makes them an excellent choice for the Ethernet connection of monitoring, control and optimization devices in building automation.
The low-cost conversion of electrical signals into optical signals within Industrial Ethernet networks is made possible with the compact SCALANCE X101-1 media converter. The media converters can bridge distances of up to 26 km.
SCALANCE X-100 Industrial Ethernet media converters with a robust metal housing are optimized for assembly on a standard rail and a SIMATIC S7-300 mounting rail. The media converters are typically placed in a control cabinet together with the elements to be connected. They can be used in line, star, and ring topologies.
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. Siemens offers FastConnect, a system that fulfills all these requirements: On-site assembly – quick, easy and error-free.
