SCALANCE W760 Access Points and SCALANCE W720 Client Modules
Easily and cost-effectively implement wireless machine networks with Industrial Wireless LAN (IWLAN) from the control cabinet
Benefit from Wi-Fi for industry. Thanks to their practical SIMATIC design, SCALANCE W760 Access Points and SCALANCE W720 Client Modules take up minimal space in the control cabinet. As a result, automation components like SIMATIC ET 200SP and even a redundant ET 200SP HA are easily integrated into an Industrial Wireless LAN – according to the IEEE 802.11n standard and with data rates of up to 150 Mbit/s.

Product details and application example
The compact Access Points and Client Modules in SIMATIC design were specially developed for applications in which the device is to be mounted in the control cabinet, e.g. for storage and retrieval machines in high-bay warehouses. Of course, like all SCALANCE W Access Points and Client Modules, they support the 2.4 and 5 GHz frequency bands. For worldwide use, there are corresponding radio approvals and country-specific variants of the devices.
Here you will find all SCALANCE W devices at a glance:
SCALANCE W760 Access Points for the control cabinet
The Access Points enable the integration of components and devices in an Industrial WLAN – simple, compact, and space-saving.
More options with SCALANCE W761 Access Point
All Access Points, including SCALANCE W761-1 RJ45, can also be configured as client (see operating mode). This gives you even more options when implementing your wireless solution in the control cabinet.
SCALANCE W720 Client Modules for the control cabinet
With the Client Modules, automation components and devices can be easily integrated in an Industrial WLAN – optionally also with iFeatures, e.g. for PROFINET via PROFIsafe.
SCALANCE W722 Client Modules
Integrated iFeatures allow the SCALANCE W722-1 RJ45 Client Module to support secure wireless communication via PROFINET using PROFIsafe, for example.
Antennas and accessories
Complete your SCALANCE W products with our wide range of antenna types featuring different radiation characteristics. Of course, you will also find other accessories that are optimally matched to the SCALANCE products, such as cabling technology and mounting accessories – including cables, lightning protection elements, and plug-in connectors.
Wireless connected – inside and outside the control cabinet
The SCALANCE W770 Access Points and SCALANCE W730 Client Modules wirelessly communicate with data rates of up to 300 Mbit/s between controller and distributed I/O such as SIMATIC ET 200MP.
WLAN for inside as well as outside the control cabinet and harsh environments
High-performance wireless communication with SCALANCE W780 Access Points and SCALANCE W740 Client Modules enables data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s – both inside and outside the control cabinet as well as in harsh outdoor environments.
