Restricted sales and delivery release for the extension of the SCALANCE XC-200 product line

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
SIMATIC NET is expanding its XC-200 product line with additional Gigabit versions with 16 and 24 ports. The devices are immediately available for delivery with the following restrictions: Approvals for UL/FM/ATEX/IECex/KC/EAC are not yet available but are expected by the end of March 2019. The marine approvals are expected to be available by mid-2020.

Note: SCALANCE XC-200 products will replace the SCALANCE X-200 and SCALANCE X-300 (compact) product lines.

 

1. Product description 

 

 

 


The managed Industrial Ethernet switches of the SCALANCE XC-200 product line are optimally suited for the configuration of Industrial Ethernet networks with transmission rates of 10/100/1000 Mbps in line, star and ring structures. The  SCALANCE XC-200 line is being expanded by versions with 16 and 24 Gigabit ports. These versions each have 4 combo ports so that you can use either an electrical port (10/100/1000 Mbps) or an optical port (1000 Mbps SFP). Other than this, the new product variants support the same feature set as the current XC-200 products.

 

  • Rugged enclosure in SIMATIC S7-1500 format with mounting options on standard DIN rail, SIMATIC S7-300 and SIMATIC S7-1500 mounting rail or for direct wall mounting
  • Electrical and optical connection to devices or network depending on the port type of the devices
  • Support of SFP plug-in transceivers with transmission rates of 1000 Mbps
  • Rugged, industry-standard RJ45 connectors that offer additional strain relief and bending strain relief thanks to latching on the enclosure
  • Redundant power supply
  • Console port for direct device access
  • Extensive operating mode and status information is displayed via LEDs and selection buttons
  • Error signaling contact for connection to error signaling system
  • Slot for optional C-PLUG removable data storage medium for easy device replacement
  • Grounding screw for external grounding connection

 

New additional software functions as compared to X-200:

  • Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) (port-based)
  • IGMP Snooping and Query
  • HRP Standby Master/Slave
  • Link aggregation
  • Fiber monitoring on all versions with fiber optic
  • IEEE 802.1X(RADIUS)
  • Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP and MSTP)
  • Remote Network Monitoring (RMON)
  • Access control for management functions - Management Access Control List (ACL)
  • NAT/NAPT - Network Address Translation/Network Address and Port Translation (load-limited)
  • Configuration in TIA Portal as in Web Based Management (WBM)
  • Versions are prepared for high-precision time synchronization according to IEEE 1588v2

 

New, additional functions as compared to X-300:

  • Configuration in TIA Portal as in Web Based Management (WBM)
  • VLAN extensions (Private VLAN (PVLAN), multiple VLAN IP interfaces)
  • Function as DHCP server possible
  • Improved usability in CLI and scripting
  • Console port

3. Target application

 

  • An industrial network for data, voice, video and PROFINET
  • Integrated system diagnostics with PROFINET, SINEMA Server, Syslog and SNMP
  • Use in SIMATIC S7-1500 environment
  • Virtual LANs (VLAN) enable simple subdivision of large networks into smaller subnets with their own address space. Reasons for subdivision into subnets include separation of the Ethernet networks to reduce the broadcast load, separation of sensitive areas from the main network, as well as subdivision of the network into logical working groups.
  • Integrated security functions offer protection against unauthorized network access and configuration (e.g. secure access to the device via HTTPS)
  • Use in the EtherNet/IP environment

 

4. Customer benefits

 

  • Operational reliability in industrial environments, e.g. due to rugged enclosure, redundancy, temperature range from -40 to +70 °C
  • Increased plant availability thanks to:
      • Redundant power supply

      • Redundant network structures based on HRP and MRP fast media redundancy

      • Standby redundancy between HRP rings

      • Prevention of loops using standard mechanisms STP, RSTP and MSTP as well as loop detection

      • SFP plug-in transceivers can be replaced or expanded during operation

      • Easy device replacement by means of plug-in C-PLUG removable data storage medium

  • Easy monitoring and diagnostics using LEDs, signaling contact, web browser, traps, and email notification

  • Protocol-specific (PROFINET or EtherNet/IP) diagnostic integration possible

  • Reduced engineering work for PLC/HMI due to integration into the SIMATIC system fault message concept

  • Integration in the SINEMA Server network management software or SINEC NMS is possible
  • Integration of switches through support of S2 system redundancy and H-Sync enables integration into SIMATIC S7-1500R/H controller concepts
