SCALANCE W760 and SCALANCE W720

Access Points and Client Modules for IWLAN from the control cabinet

Easily and cost-effectively network machines – with SCALANCE W760 Access Points and SCALANCE W720 Client Modules! Due to their practical SIMATIC design, minimum space is required in the control cabinet when integrating automation components such as SIMATIC ET 200SP or even redundant ET 200SP HA. As a result, they can be easily integrated into an Industrial WLAN network – according to the IEEE 802.11n standard and with data rates of up to 150 Mbit/s.
