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: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...

Im Focus: Nanorobots propel through the eye

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.

Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
