Industrial Ethernet switches for extremely harsh industrial environments and switchgear

The Siemens Industry Automation Division is expanding its Scalance X-300 series of powerful managed Industrial Ethernet switches with a product line for use in energy automation.

The Scalance X-300EEC (Enhanced Environmental Conditions) with IP30 degree of protection is suitable for extremely harsh industrial environments as well as for the communication between switching and protection devices in low-voltage and high-voltage switchgear. The switches are EMC-approved in accordance with the IEC standard 61850-3, as necessary for this area of application.

The Scalance X-300EEC product line consists of compact devices and a modular 19-inch rack unit. There are versions with redundant wide-range power supplies to meet high availability demands, and with special coatings for heavy ambient air pollution.

Depending on the version, the devices feature 10/100/1000 Mbit/s RJ45 ports and 100/1000 Mbit/s FOC ports with different numbers of interfaces. All versions support time synchronization with high-precision microsecond accuracy in accordance with the IEEE 1588 V2 standard.
