• Scalance XR526-8C with high device performance of up to 44 Gbps
• Compact design and a high degree of flexibility with regard to connections
• High availability resulting from redundant power supply
• Layer 3 switching for high-performance plant networks
• Simple diagnostics and configuration via network management systems
Siemens has now added the Scalance XR526-8C to its portfolio of powerful Ethernet switches of the XR-500 product line. The device is compatible to a number of different network components and acts as a link between automation and office networks. Although it comes equipped with 24 Gigabit ports, two 10-Gigabit ports and integrated network sections, the switch has a low installation height of only 44 mm and thus saves space in the control cabinet.
Two additional SFP (Small Form-Factor Pluggable) slots for 10 Gbps ensure high device performance of up to 44 Gbps. High availability can be realized by the fan-free design and the redundant power supply. The partially modular switch for 19-inch racks supports Layer 3 switching via the Key-Plug and can be flexibly installed in high-performance plant networks. Users can integrate the switch into all standard network management systems (e.g. Sinema Server) and the TIA Portal for easy configuration and diagnostics.
Various different media can be connected to the Scalance XR526-8C thanks to its eight combo ports, plug-in transceivers and the link aggregation option. The switch is compatible to all Scalance X switches and all typical network devices in an office environment.
The new switch supplements the models Scalance XR524-8C, Scalance XR528-6M and Scalance XR552-12M. The Scalance XR-500 product line includes fully and partially modular high-performance Ethernet switches for the configuration of electrical and optical line, ring and star topologies. The switches handle the communication networking of plant sections as well as distributed field devices and ensure high plant availability.
A five-year warranty applies to the new Scalance XR526-8C, as is the case for all Scalance products with delivery date January 1, 2015 or later.

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
