Product details and application example
There are many applications where high-performance and reliable IWLAN communication is essential: along rail tracks, in amusement parks, or even in applications with emergency stop function. This is where the SCALANCE W780 Access Points and SCALANCE W740 Client Modules are at home. They can be installed indoors, outdoors, and in harsh environments thanks to different variants. When combined with iFeatures functionalities, new application possibilities open up, such as real-time communication via PROFINET with PROFIsafe or redundancy via WLAN.
Here you will find all SCALANCE W devices at a glance:
SCALANCE W780 Access Points for indoors, outdoors and in harsh environments
With SCALANCE W780, you will find the right IWLAN Access Point for every challenging application. In addition, you can enable special industrial functions via the KEY-PLUG W780. Among other things, devices then support secure wireless communication via PROFINET with PROFIsafe at up to 450 Mbit/s, and seamless redundancy with iPRP. All Access Points are also configurable as client.
SCALANCE W788 M12 EEC Access Points
Thanks to conformal-coated circuit boards and relevant approvals, the SCALANCE W788-2 M12 EEC Access Points meet the requirements for traffic and transportation systems (EN 50121-4, EN 50155, EN 45545-2, NEMA TS2). For rail tracks and other applications with mobile participants, the industrial Parallel Redundancy Protocol (iPRP) iFeature ensures seamless redundancy and maximum availability of the radio connection. Wireless real-time data transmission via PROFINET in turn is made possible thanks to the industrial Point Coordination Function (iPCF).
SCALANCE W740 Client Modules for inside and outside the control cabinet
In various applications such as trains, amusement parks or Automated Guided Vehicles, the SCALANCE W740 Client Modules ensure a high-performance, reliable radio connection – depending on the version, installed in the control cabinet or indoors in production facilities.
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 in an Industrial WLAN – with data rates of up to 150 Mbit/s.
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.
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.
