With industry-standard design

The robust unmanaged Industrial Ethernet Switches SCALANCE XC-100 with electrical and/or optical port variants enable cost-optimized networking at the machine level. With SCALANCE X108PoE, you also save on installation costs thanks to integrated Power-over-Ethernet functionality: Data and power are transferred over a single cable (Railway approval EN 50155).

Typical uses

SCALANCE XC-100 switches are designed for use in control cabinets. They can withstand harsh ambient conditions and can be used in extreme temperatures from -40°C to +70°C and in areas at risk of explosion rated Zone 2 in accordance with ATEX and IECEx.

FastConnect – a cabling system gets the hang

Structured cabling is the basis of an industrial bus system or network and must fulfill much higher requirements than cabling in the office area. Stringent demands are placed on the installation of cables in the industrial environment. Siemens offers FastConnect, a system that fulfills all these requirements: On-site assembly – quick, easy and error-free.

The cost-optimized, space-saving rack switch

The cost-optimized unmanaged SCALANCE XR-100WG 19" rack switches (work group) have a small mounting depth, which means two switches can be installed on both sides to save space in the control cabinet.

Typical uses

SCALANCE XR-100WG switches are ideally suited for a wide variety of industry-related applications and control rooms. They have up to 24 Fast Ethernet ports, and the 24 V DC versions with a redundant power supply can deliver reliable operation, even during power failures.

Versatile switch for industry and buildings

SCALANCE XB-100 unmanaged Industrial Ethernet switches have a high port density with up to 24 x RJ45 ports and a data rate of 10/100 Mbit/s. Their plastic housing keeps their weight low, and their compact design makes them ideal for installation in control cabinets. Versions with fiber-optic connections enable setup of both electrical as well as optical line and star topologies, even in areas at risk of explosion.

Typical uses

All SCALANCE XB-100 devices are ideally suited for industrial use thanks to their redundant 24 V DC power supply. Their 24 V AC (50/60 Hz) power supply also makes them an excellent choice for the Ethernet connection of monitoring, control and optimization devices in building automation.
