Siemens: Scalance XC-200 switches

Name *: Siemens: Scalance XC-200 switches
Description *: 
With the Scalance XC-200 product line, users can set up electrical and optical line, star and ring structures in industrial networks. The layer-2 network components can be integrated into both Profinet and EtherNet/IP diagnostics. The switches have many ports and connections, a temperature range of –40°C to +70°C, and approval for hazardous areas (ATEX Zone 2, IEC Ex). As a result, they can be used in mechanical engineering, transportation, the automotive industry, and the oil and gas industry. For transferring large volumes of data, workers can use the Scalance XC206-2SFP switch with two gigabit ports to transmit video data, for example, from tunnel cameras to a control center.
The XC-200 devices are available in different versions, with up to 24 RJ45 ports and two ST/BFOC or two SC ports. With the XC206-2SFP, users can select two ports. Depending on what is needed, fiber-optic SFPs are used for single mode with a maximum range of 200 km or for multimode with a range of up to 5 km. All of the devices are equipped with a redundant power supply. The housing and the collars and the connectors and cables ensure RJ45 connections in environments where equipment has to endure shock and vibration. Users can mount the switches on the wall, on a 35-mm DIN rail, or on a Simatic S7-1500 mounting rail. Clearly arranged diagnostic light-emitting diodes and a signaling contact enable precise determination of the state of the equipment and diagnostic evaluations.The SPM 401 series stainless-steel, media-isolate pressure sensors are especially suitable for low-pressure and smaller applications. Media-isolated sensors can operate in hostile environments with the sensitivity, linearity, and hysteresis of a silicon sensor. The sensor is compatible with 316L stainless steel, a type of steel that increases corrosion resistance, improves resistance to pitting from chloride ion solutions, and provides increased strength at high temperatures. The piezo sensor chip is housed in a fluid-filled cylindrical cavity and isolated from measured media by a stainless-steel diaphragm and body.
