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.

Flexible switch 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.

Typical uses

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

Flat and flexible

The SCALANCE XF-200BA Industrial Ethernet switches have the same extra-flat design as the SIMATIC ET 200SP with a flexible bus adapter concept: This allows installation of various network topologies for copper or fiber-optic cables. In addition, there are SCALANCE XF-200 switches with the same flat design as the SIMATIC ET 200S, various port constellations and a diagonal cable outlet.

Typical uses

Equipped with coated printed circuit boards (Conformal Coating) and with a temperature range of -40°C to +70°C, the managed switches are ideal for use in manufacturing and process automation, for example in automobile manufacturing or in the Oil and Gas industry.

Cabinet-free use in harsh environments

The managed switches of the SCALANCE XP-200 product line are characterized by a robust and flat metal enclosure in M12 connection technology for a high degree of protection (IP65). Up to four gigabit ports enable the transmission of large amounts of data; devices with a total output of 120W can be supplied via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) according to IEEE 802.3at Type 2. Like all managed layer 2 switches, the SCALANCE XP-200 features numerous firmware functions – such as virtual LANs (VLAN) and redundancy mechanisms – which can, when necessary, be switched for complete PROFINET or EtherNet/IP diagnostics. 

Typical uses

The cabinet-free design allows for use both indoors and outdoors.  A robust and reliable operation is thus provided in many industries – ranging from automotive, transportation, Food&Beverage, to Oil&Gas.

More functions in small spaces – with PROFINET and EtherNet/IP

The managed switches of the SCALANCE XB-200 product line save space and feature a lightweight, industry-compatible plastic housing. They support PROFINET and EtherNet/IP (optionally switchable) and can thus be used for real-time communication applications. 

Typical uses

SCALANCE XB-200 Industrial Ethernet switches enable the setup of virtual networks thanks to their VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) functionality and can also be deployed in potentially explosive areas (IECEx/ATEX Zone 2/UL HazLoc).
