Powerful Ethernet switch connects automation and office networks

06.11.2015

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

• 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.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
