Secure remote access with Profibus

Siemens is extending its portfolio of industrial routers with the Scalance M804PB, which allows existing machines and plants to be connected to Ethernet networks via Profibus/MPI (Multi-Point Interface). Users can also economically connect older machines and plants directly to the Sinema Remote Connect management platform for remote networks. Secured communication takes place via a VPN tunnel which can be configured and administered via Sinema Remote Connect. The Scalance M804PB is designed for companies in the manufacturing industry such as mechanical equipment manufacturers (OEMs) as well as for companies in the automotive, food & beverage, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

The device has integrated TIA Portal cloud connector functionality. This allows users to access existing Profibus units from centrally administered 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 for CLI and SNMP via web-based management tools. Download and upload data rates of 9.6 Kbit/s to 12 Mbit/s can be achieved on the Profibus/MPI interface. The redundant supply voltage is DC 24 V. Mounting options include wall mounting, DIN rails and S7-300 or S7-1500 profile rails.
