Ethernet switch connects automation and office networks

09 November 2015

Siemens has added the Scalance XR526-8C to its existing range of XR-500 Ethernet switches. 

The device is compatible to a number of different network components and acts as a link between automation and office networks. Although it comes equipped with 24 Gigabit ports, two 10-Gigabit ports and integrated network sections, the switch has an installation height of just 44 mm, helping to save space in the control cabinet. 

Two additional SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) slots for 10 Gbps ensure high device performance of up to 44 Gbps. High availability can be realised by the fan-free design and the redundant power supply, says the company. The partially modular switch for 19in racks supports Layer 3 switching via the Key-Plug and can be flexibly installed in high-performance plant networks. Users can integrate the switch into all standard network management systems and the TIA Portal for easy configuration and diagnostics.

A variety of media can be connected to the Scalance XR526-8C because of its eight combo ports, plug-in transceivers and the link aggregation option. The switch is compatible to all Scalance X switches and all typical network devices in an office environment.
