Finding the right network communication components in an industrial environment can be challenging. Harsh environments and demanding criteria can make it difficult to find the right fit. Whether it is to find specific elements compatible with one another, withstand certain conditions, or possess the correct number of ports. With this in mind, Siemens created Scalance to ensure you have a top to bottom solution for every layer of your industrial network communication system.
Siemens created a brand of industrial networking communication components called Scalance. These components range are all the various network parts that form the basis of industrial network communications. This ranges from ethernet switches, Wireless local area network systems, and industrial security appliances. Scalance cutting edge products are high preforming, robust, and future viable. All-important characteristics you need for an efficient industrial network communication system.
Scalance Industrial Network Communication System
Siemens produces unmanaged and managed ethernet switches. The Scalance Unmanaged Ethernet Switches are great for compact, simple machine network communications, whereas managed ethernet switches have higher network availability and better functionality and design.
If you’re looking for robust, compatible, and high-level functioning, the Scalance X series is the right fit for you. From 5 to 58 ports, temperature control, and containing both PROFINET and EtherNet, Scalance provides flexibility and compatibility with other parts. With a more elevated level of function and design, Scalance X switches are the backbone of many industries in industrial network communications.
Additionally, Siemens provides ample optimal port options with their SFP ports to ensure that each customer finds the proper plug-in for their Scalance ethernet switch. The SFP plug-in transceivers expand the Scalance X portfolio and increase the number of applications and flexibility of Scalance X products with SFP slots.
Scalance Wireless LAN offers simple to high-performance Wi-Fi solutions. Unique elements called IFeatures are integrated into demanding and high-performance wireless LANs, allowing Scalance IWLAN to fulfill many industrial applications.
Scalance S Industrial Security Appliance Technology ensures that your network is secured from internal and external attacks. Since all levels are addressed simultaneously at the same time, a multi-faceted defense-in-depth approach embedded in the industrial security applications prevented threats from accessing the system.
Threats and malware are recognized early in the process. When these vulnerabilities are analyzed, the system gives detailed security measures to protect network data. Siemens’s resourceful technology continuously monitors the network systems to always provide optimal protection. Whether the objective is cell protection, dynamic firewall rules, or authenticating access via VPN, Scalance protects networks due to its extensive portfolio of security mechanisms. These mechanisms are combined and used against threats protecting against unintentional or intentional system access and attacks.
