Industrial Ethernet Switches – SCALANCE X

Scalance X – Industrial Ethernet Switches

Always the right Industrial Ethernet switch – managed or unmanaged

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.

Read how managed switches contribute to improved productivity, process quality, and product quality.

The foundation for secure networks : TÜV certification demonstrates the security of network components

Siemens has received TÜV certification in compliance with IEC 62443-4-2 and -4-1 for network components in the Scalance XB-200, XC-200, XP-200, XF-200BA and XR-300WG product families. Customers are therefore able to realize secure system architectures, which clearly increases the overall security of a plant.


The certification demonstrates that the product development process previously certified has been consequently applied during product development of above-mentioned SCALANCE X-product lines. It also confirms that key technical product requirements have been taken into account and implemented in the network components.

Unmanaged Switches

Easy and cost-effective

Easy to use, robust and highly suitable for industrial applications: Implement cost-effective industrial Ethernet networks using our unmanaged switches, regardless of whether your goal is simple machine networking or small electrical or optical Ethernet networks. 

Managed Switches Layer 2

Flexible use

You need high network availability and have higher functionality demands? Discover our versatile and high-performance layer 2 switches for machine-level applications and the networking of subsystems and plant areas in line, star, and ring structures.

Managed Switches Layer 2/3

Reliable and powerful

Maximum flexibility and highest network availability: With our layer 2/3 devices for large networks, you are prepared to meet any communication network demand. These let you structure high-performance production networks with a connection to the company IT system, including high data rates of up to 10 Gbps across company boundaries.

Switches for process automation

Especially for the process industry

You can also use the SCALANCE X Industrial Ethernet switches in PROFINET networks that fulfill the special requirements of the process industry. As a result, all levels of data communication and network redundancy (S2 and R1) are available in all network topologies, such as line, star and ring, or as a mixed topology, and can even be adjusted during system operation thanks to Configuration in Run (CiR/H-CiR) in PCS 7.

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.
