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
