  • Network:

    layer 2


The managed switch SCALANCE XB208 with 8x 10/100 Mbit/s RJ45 ports saves space and features a lightweight, industry-compatible plastic housing. It supports PROFINET and EtherNet/IP (selectably switchable) and can thus be used for real-time communication applications.
In addition, it enables the setup of virtual networks thanks to its VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) functionality, and can also be deployed in potentially explosive areas (IECEx/ATEX Zone 2/UL HazLoc).
A range of security functions make SCALANCE XB208 switch the ideal choice for use in network security concepts:
it can be configured either via the integrated SCALANCE XB208 web interface or, alternatively, a console port is available for connecting a terminal for configuration, management and diagnostics via CLI (Command Line Interface).
Network communications remain uninterrupted even in the event of a power failure thanks to the redundant power supply (9.6 to 28.8 V DC) implemented via two 3-pin connectors.
