For maximum performance in your network
SCALANCE X-500 switches are modular, high-performance switches appropriate for industrial applications for designing electrical and optical line, ring, and star structures with transmission rates of up to 10 Gbit/s and installation in 19-inch control cabinets. With SCALANCE X-500, you enjoy freedom of choice when it comes to connecting media, and you can employ a variety of redundancy concepts.
The SCALANCE X-500 is perfectly suited for industrial networks and for integrating them into an existing company network. The switch enables the connection of plant parts and distributed field devices from the control to the management level, and it ensures high plant availability with extensive diagnostic options and high transmission rates.
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.
Media modules for SCALANCE X-500
Benefit from unlimited flexibility in network expansion: The media modules for SCALANCE X-500 switches make it easy to expand networks when later installing additional media modules in free module slots while the system is in operation. The same applies to the subsequent insertion of additional SFP+ or SFP plug-in transceivers in free SFP+ slots.
Plug-in transceivers allow you to flexibly equip network components in the SCALANCE family with a corresponding SFP slot for optical connections.
PLUGs for network components
Swap devices easily with no need for special knowledge: The C-PLUG, KEY-PLUG, and SCALANCE CLP removable storage media save the configuration data from your SCALANCE devices. Remove PLUG, install replacement device, insert PLUG – and the new device is ready to go! The KEY-PLUGs include all the functions of the C-PLUG and also enable specific functions like Layer 3 in the SCALANCE X-500.
Power Supply for SCALANCE X-500
The SCALANCE PS598 24 V DC power supply in protection class IP20 is designed to be installed in 19” control cabinets or for direct connection to SCALANCE XR-500 Industrial Ethernet switches. The power supply is short circuit-proof and resistant to no-load operation, and it can be used worldwide thanks to its wide input voltage range (85 to 264 V AC).
