SCALANCE W770 Access Points

SCALANCE W770 Access Points for both inside and outside the control cabinet

Greater flexibility, even for demanding applications: The SCALANCE W770 Access Points can either be used inside the control cabinet as head assembly of the SIMATIC S7-1500 or, alternatively, in the more robust versions with IP65 degree of protection, also outside.

SCALANCE W730 Client Modules

SCALANCE W730 Client Modules for both inside and outside the control cabinet

Our SCALANCE W730 Client Modules are available in two variants: in the SIMATIC design for simple, space-saving installation in the control cabinet (e.g. with a SIMATIC ET 200MP) or in a compact aluminum housing for outside the control cabinet.

SCALANCE W770 Access Points and SCALANCE W730 Client Modules at a glance

Wireless data transmission inside or outside the control cabinet: The SCALANCE W770 Access Points and SCALANCE W730 Client Modules realize, for example, the wireless communication between 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.

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.

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.
