The Scalance SC-600 are compact security network components, each with up to six RJ45 Ethernet ports which provide a data rate of up to 1 Gigabit per second (Gbit/s). Two of the six ports are also designed as combo ports. These allow integration of either optical 100 Mbit/s or 1 Gbit/s SFPs (Small Form-factor Pluggable) in single or multi-mode design. The combo ports can therefore bridge distances of up to 200 kilometers via FO cables with LC connection technology. The two combined RJ45 ports are deactivated in this mode. The Scalance SC-600 allows flexible configuration of security zones. Depending on the variant, either one port is dedicated to the overlapped network and one to the network to be secured or the six active ports can be split into different security zones if required. The design, which is based on the Simatic S7-1500 housing, enables space-saving installation in the control cabinet. The industrial security appliances come with a redundant 24-volt DC power supply as well as a signaling contact and can also be connected to the Sinema Server network management software. In addition to this, they are passed for Zone 2 hazardous areas as well as use in the shipbuilding industry and meet the IEC 62443 standard.
