Ethernet switches


Using signaling contact, digital inputs and simple network protocol (SNMP), Scalance X industrial Ethernet switches are designed specifically for high-speed, backbone architectures %%MDASSML%% including process control systems %%MDASSML%% that handle numerous devices with fast redundancy. The switches support 1,000 Mbits per second communication speeds via PROFINET, twisted copper wire or fiber-optic cable. The Scalance X family of switches offers reduced downtime through fast device replacement; lower cost of ownership due to easy configuration with built-in, web-based management tools; fast commissioning; complete diagnostics via LED and PROFINET I/O; and the reliability of standard, redundant, point-to-point connections and power supply the company says.
