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: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
