SCALANCE W770 Access Points and SCALANCE W730 Client Modules at a glanceTransmit data wirelessly from inside or outside the control cabinet with Industrial Wireless LAN. For example, SCALANCE W770 Access Points and SCALANCE W730 Client Modules can implement wireless communication between a SIMATIC S7-1500 controller and SIMATIC ET 200MP.
Product details and application example
The SCALANCE W774 Access Points and SCALANCE W734 Client Modules in SIMATIC design were developed for use inside the control cabinet. As the head assembly of the controller or the distributed I/O, they ensure a reliable wireless communication. Alternatively, you can also install the SCALANCE W778 Access Points and SCALANCE W738 Client Modules outside the control cabinet thanks to their IP65 protection class. No matter which variant you choose: thanks to a gross data rate of up to 300 Mbit/s and optional iFeatures, even more demanding applications such as the networking of Automated Guided Vehicles can be accomplished.
Here you will find all SCALANCE W devices at a glance:
SCALANCE W770 Access Points for both inside and outside the control cabinet
The SCALANCE W774 Access Points are used as the head assembly of a controller such as the SIMATIC S7-1500 in the control cabinet. For applications outside the control cabinet in the industrial and automation sector, the SCALANCE W778 Access Points can be mounted on DIN rails or directly on the wall, for example.
SCALANCE W774-1 M12 EEC and SCALANCE W778-1 M12 EEC Access Points for traffic and transportation systems
Thanks to conformal-coated circuit boards and relevant approvals, the SCALANCE W774-1 M12 EEC and SCALANCE W778-1 M12 Access Points meet the requirements for traffic and transportation system (EN 50155, E1).
SCALANCE W730 Client Modules for both inside and outside the control cabinet
The SCALANCE W734 Client Modules can be installed inside the control cabinet as the head assembly of the controller or distributed I/O. The SCALANCE W738 Client Modules with IP65 degree of protection are designed for indoor use outside the control cabinet and can thus be installed, for example, in Automated Guided Vehicles, or mounted on DIN rails or directly on the wall.
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.
WLAN from the control cabinet
The SCALANCE W760 Access Points and SCALANCE W720 Client Modules save space in the control cabinet thanks to their practical SIMATIC design. Automation components can thus be easily and cost-effectively integrated into an Industrial WLAN network – with data rates of up to 150 Mbit/s.
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.
Device replacement made simple without specialist knowledge: The C-PLUG, KEY-PLUG or SCALANCE CLP removable data storage media are used to back up configuration and project data of your SCALANCE devices. Remove PLUG, install replacement device, insert PLUG – the new device is ready for use. KEY-PLUGs contain all functions of the C-PLUG and, in addition, enable specific functions such as iFeatures in SCALANCE devices.
IWLAN RCoax Cable
The specialist for demanding radio environments: The RCoax radiating cable enables reliable wireless connections along defined transmission paths in cranes, elevators, rail-guided vehicles, and similar applications. The IWLAN RCoax Cable is simply connected as an external antenna to SCALANCE W Access Points.
iFeatures – special industrial functions for wireless applications
Not only the hardware, but also the software of the devices has to meet special industrial requirements. That’s why Siemens has developed the so-called iFeatures: These additional functions developed specifically for the industry can be activated as software – also at a later time – on different IWLAN Access Points and Client Modules. By means of PLUGs that are inserted into the devices, the desired additional functions can be conveniently enabled.
