SCALANCE XR324 19-inch RACK MOUNT SWITCH. SCALANCE XR324 is designed to be the most flexible device on the plant floor, this rack mounted Ethernet switch is available from one to twenty-four ports and available in five unique media form factors. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The ability for manufacturers to stay flexible, modular and open is critical in today's manufacturing environment. So why not demand the same from your network components? With the modularity found in the Scalance XR324 switch you can start with the number of ports you need, add more later, and build as your needs grow, up to 24 ports.

Additionally, with the convergence of IT and plant technology it was only a matter of time before network hardware supporting both environments be housed close together, or even on the same rack. That time is now with the XR324 switch which is designed for mounting to a standard 19-in. rack.

With Gigabit capacity on all ports the Scalance XR324 is designed for engineers working on the plant floor of today, but thinking about the plant floor of tomorrow.
