Sales Release and Restricted Delivery Release for SCALANCE X204-2TS

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

The SCALANCE X204-2TS switch is herewith released for ordering and for restricted delivery.


1. Product description

SIMATIC NET has expanded the product spectrum of SCALANCE X-200 managed switches by an additional variant for adverse mechanical and thermal application conditions.
The SCALANCE X204-2TS (Transportation System) has 4 electrical RJ45 ports and two optical BFOC interfaces. It differs from the X204-2 by its expanded temperature range (-40°C to 70°C), its extended supply voltage range (12V DC to 32 V DC, with 24V DC rated voltage) and its approval to EN 50155.
With these features the switch fulfills all requirements for railway applications. The switch has degree of protection IP20 an a strong metal housing for mounting on S7 or standard mounting rails. Direct wall mounting is also possible. A signalling contact that can be configured via pushbuttons and LEDs are available for on-site diagnosis. Diagnosis is also possible via SNMP and the integrated Web user interface. The SCALANCE X204-2TS switch can also be integrated into the PN IO diagnosis of a IO Controller as PN IO Device. Fast device replacement in the case of a fault is made possible by the insertable C-PLUG (Configuration Plug, not included in the scope of supply), on which all configuration data can be stored.

Restrictions: no UL, FM, ATEX approvals yet. The approvals are expected by October 2011.

3. Application  

- Operation in a redundant optical / electrical ring
- Integrated redundancy manager for the construction of highly available networks in ring structure
- Simple integration into the STEP7 fault signalling system with integrated PROFINET diagnosis (PN IO Device)
- PROFINET-compliant plug-in connectors
- Universal mounting options ( 35mm DIN rail, S7-300 mounting rail and wall mounting)
- Fast device replacement in the case of a fault with C-PLUG (optional)

More user benefits:

- Industrially suitable with its robust metal housing, high noise immunity and extended temperature range
- For use under adverse ambient conditions (EN 50155)
- Universal mounting options (standard DIN rail, S7-300 mounting rail and wall mounting)
- Several diagnostic and management options: e.g. signalling contact, remote access via SNMP, Web-based Management and PROFINET
