Managed Switches Layer 2

Flexible for general applications

The SCALANCE XC-200 Industrial Ethernet switches offer many functions: Virtual LANs (VLAN), redundancy mechanisms and optional complete PROFINET or Ethernet/IP diagnostics in one device.

In addition to variants for setting up electrical and optical networks, the SCALANCE XC206-2SFP switch, for example, can bridge distances of up to 200 km with 2 GB-capable SFPs.

Thanks to their properties including an extended temperature range (-40 °C to 70 °C) and approvals for railway applications (trackside) and hazardous areas (ATEX Zone 2, IECEx), the SCALANCE XC-200 switches can be flexibly used in a wide variety of environments: in mechanical engineering, in the automotive industry, in the food & beverages industry, along rail-guided routes or in the oil and gas industry.

In addition, optical lines can be monitored for wear and tear or contamination with the Fiber Monitoring function, thus avoiding downtimes.

Advantages

  • Robust housing and extended temperature range (-40 °C to 70 °C)

  • Gigabit-capable and bridging of up to 200 km between two SCALANCE XC206-2SFP

  • Trackside railway approval (EN 50121-4) and use in hazardous areas (ATEX Zone 2, IECEx)

  • Optional support of real-time communication via PROFINET or Ethernet/IP

  • Prevention of downtimes caused by contaminated or worn optical connections by means of Fiber Monitoring.
