  Siemens announces industrial router Scalance M804PB

5. June 2018 – Siemens extends its portfolio of industrial routers with the Scalance M804PB. With this device, existing machines and plants (eg with Simatic S7-300 / S7-400) can be connected to Ethernet networks via Profibus / MPI (Multi-Point Interface). Users can also connect legacy equipment directly to the Sinema Remote Connect Management Remote Networking Platform. Secure communication takes place via a VPN tunnel, which can be configured and managed via Sinema Remote Connect. The Scalance M804PB extends the Scalance router product line and offers a remote maintenance concept for existing systems. This makes it suitable for manufacturing companies such as OEMs and automotive, food, beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical companies.

The device has integrated TIA Portal Cloud Connector functionality. Users can access existing Profibus units from centrally managed engineering tools such as the TIA Portal or Step 7 (from version 5.5). The Scalance M804PB is a Profibus / MPI router for private, wired networks even with existing two-wire cabling. In addition to a Profibus / MPI connection, it also has two RJ45 interfaces in the form of a Fast Ethernet two-port switch. It also has a C-Plug / Key-Plug slot. The Scalance

M804PB supports VLAN, Firewall / VPN (IPsec) / NAT, OpenVPN (as client), VRRP / RSTP and can be configured via web-based management tools for CLI and SNMP. Download and upload of data rates from 9.6 Kbps to 12 Mbps are possible via the Profibus / MPI interface. The redundant supply voltage is DC 24 V. The mounting options include wall mounting, DIN rails and S7-300 or S7-1500 profiled rails.

The Scalance M804PB Profibus / MPI router has the same user interface and features as the Scalance M -800 and S615 product line as it is based on the same firmware. This allows handling and compatibility with existing systems (eg Simatic portfolio, network management software, etc.). With the Scalance M804PB, for example, digital inputs and outputs enable on-site access control via key switches.
