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.


  • 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.
