SCALANCE X – Industrial Ethernet Switches
Always the right Industrial Ethernet switch
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.
Explore all opportunitiesEnjoy unique flexibility in designing the network topology: from redundant setup and minimization of downtimes, through integrated and reliable segmentation across all levels to barrier-free connection to cloud-based systems. In our extensive Industrial Ethernet switches portfolio, you are sure to find the right switch for your application: devices with copper or fiber-optic ports, for the control cabinet or for use in harsh environments, at data rates of up to 10 Gbit/s.
TIA Selection Tool
Product selection and configurator for TIA automation technology
Thanks to the use of intelligent configurators and selection assistants, the TIA Selection Tool makes error-free configuration possible without expert knowledge – 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.
Just swap or expand
Use the C-PLUG to swap a device quickly and easily if an error occurs, thanks to automatic safe of configuration data. The KEY-PLUG supports the C-PLUG functionality and is also used to expand or add supplementary device functions, for example to enable a software expansion to layer 3 switching (routing) for SCALANCE XM-400 and SCALANCE XR-500. Just insert the PLUGs into the appropriate slots in the switches and enable them.
Expert support for future-proof communication networksProfessional services for industrial networks: first-class network components alone will not be enough to create a first-class industrial communication network. A thorough understanding of network designs and how to implement them is at least as important. Our certified solution partners and Siemens experts give you professional help in developing your network solution, tailored to meet your specific requirements.
Support from design to implementation
How can you ensure that a communication network will meet all current and future industry requirements? And how do you get the most out of the potential offered by state-of-the-art networks? The best way is to work with a reliable, skilled partner that’s every bit at home in industrial automation as in designing and implementing communication networks. With Siemens you receive on-site service and support, consulting services for network design, support with integration and deployment, and training services for your employees. A site survey and planning as well as the right choice of com ponents prior to putting wireless solutions into operation are essential to ensure smooth operation. We’re happy to provide support when you need it.
