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.
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.
The managed switches of the SCALANCE XP-200 product line is characterized by a robust and flat metal enclosure in M12 connection technology for high degree of protection (IP65/67). Up to four gigabit ports enable the transmission of large amounts of data; devices with a total output of 120W can be supplied via Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) according to IEEE 802.3at Type 2.The cabinet-free design allows for use both indoors and outdoors. A robust and reliable operation is thus provided in many industries – ranging from automotive, transportation, Food & Beverage, to Oil & Gas.

High degree of protection in IP65/67 and versions with conformal coating
Gigabit capable and devices are supplied via PoE ports (max. 120W)
Certified for rail applications (EN 50155, EN 45545), motor vehicles (e1/E1) and hazardous locations(ATEX Zone 2, IECEx)
The managed switches of the SCALANCE XB-200 product line save space and feature a lightweight, industry-compatible plastic housing. They support PROFINET and EtherNet/IP (selectably switchable) and can thus be used for real-time communication applications. In addition, they enable the setup of virtual networks thanks to their VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) functionality, and can also be deployed in potentially explosive areas (IECEx/ATEX Zone 2/UL HazLoc).
Selectable support of real-time communication over EtherNet/IP or PROFINET
Deployment in potentially explosive areas (IECEx/ATEX Zone 2/UL HazLoc)
Network management through diverse diagnostic and security functions
Fiber-optic cable range up to 26 km
Redundant voltage feed
The SCALANCE XF-200BA Industrial Ethernet Switches have the same extra-flat design as the SIMATIC ET 200SP with a flexible bus adapter concept: This allows installation of various network topologies for cooper or fiber-optic cables. Equipped with coated printed circuit boards (Conformal Coating) and with a temperature range of -40 °C to +70 °C, the managed switches are ideal for use in manufacturing and process automation, for example in automobile manufacturing or in the oil and gas industry.
In addition, there are SCALANCE XF-200 switches with the same flat design as the SIMATIC ET 200S, various port constellations and a diagonal cable outlet.
High level of flexibility due to use of bus adapters
Use in process automation due to Conformal Coating and wide temperature range (-40 °C to +70 °C)
Use at elevations up to 4000 m (derating as of 2000 m)
Space savings with the same flat design as SIMATIC ET 200SP
A variety of solutions for Industrial Ethernet networks are available for critical applications with high-availability requirements that do not permit any additional delay in communication.The managed SCALANCE X-200RNA Industrial Ethernet network access points with PRP functionality (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) or HSR functionality (High Availability Seamless Redundancy Protocol) according to IEC 62439-3 provide redundant network structures.Ideal for the production or process automation but also used in substation applications for electrical power distribution, for example, in medium- and high-voltage switchgear.
High-availability system solutions for bumpless and seamless data transmission according to standard IEC 62439-3
Suitable for parallel networks and ring structures
Specially designed for strict real-time applications: The SCALANCE X-200IRT managed Industrial Ethernet switches (isochronous real time) are extremely versatile, they can be used for machine-level applications right up to networked plant sections in PROFINET environments.The SCALANCE X-200IRT real-time switches with integrated real-time ASIC are ideal, for example, for high-performance, isochronous motion control applications.
