SCALANCE XM-400: Flexibility for your network



SCALANCE XM-400 switches offer you more – and effectively address the growing demands of your communication network. The pluggable transceivers with various connectors (for SC, ST/BFOC and LC connection technology) offer you maximum flexibility for automation networks. Thanks to their modular architecture, these Industrial Ethernet switches allow for tool-free expansion with port extenders.

With the help of the KEY-PLUG XM-400, Layer 3 functions can also be optionally activated – thus further increasing performance.

Use in harsh environments

The SCALANCE XR-300EEC (Enhanced Environmental Conditions) managed Industrial Ethernet Switches are racks switches for installation in a 19″ control cabinet and especially designed for power plants or extreme environmental conditions.

The SCALANCE XR-300EEC switches feature high noise immunity and can be used in an extended temperature range (-40°to +80C), for example, in energy automation applications.

Some of them are modular, in other words, up to four media modules can be freely plugged in, thus enabling flexible network construction or expansion.


  • Use in hazardous areas according to IEC 61850-3 / IEEE 1613
  • Wide-ranging IT functions for high-speed plant networks
  • Integration in the PROFINET diagnostics
  • Fast device replacement in case of fault is with the C-PLUG removable medium


High performance for plant structuring

The SCALANCE X-300/XR-300 managed Industrial Ethernet switches are highly suited for configuring line, star and ring topologies (10/100 Mbps) in plants. Their modular design allows for easy system expansion using various media modules: up to 24 electric or four optical ports (BFOC/ST) for distances up to 26km.

The switches provide high-speed redundancy in the ring and, thanks of the C-PLUG removable medium, can be easily replaced in the event of a fault without specialized skills.

The MM992-2VD media module (variable distance), which is plugged into a modular SCALANCE X-300 switch or SCALANCE S627-2M security module, can use any two-wire cables for Ethernet connections up to 1000 m. This includes, for example, land lines, lines through fireproof bulkheads or along pipelines, which can be very difficult to replace. It can also be used to establish a PROFINET connection up to 300 m.

SCALANCE X-300 is available in various versions:

  • SCALANCE X-300 as compact device
  • SCALANCE XR-300 as modular rack version
