Description
4.2 LED display
Note
If the LED for the WLAN port is not green when the device starts up, although it is activated,
the port is not ready for operation (interface not initialized).
The main reason for this is usually that during commissioning of the SCALANCE W78x
products, a waiting time of up to 15 minutes can occur when the ambient temperature is
below zero. The device is ready for operation at the specified ambient temperature as soon
as the LED for the WLAN interface is lit green.
Note
Primary user (radar) on all enabled channels
If the device detects a primary user on all enabled channels (for example radio waves of a
radar station), the LEDs F and R1 flash. No data traffic is then possible for the next 30
minutes. After this time, the device runs the scan again and checks whether a primary user
still exists. If no primary user is detected, data traffic is possible again.
The wait time of 30 minutes is necessary due to legal requirements and cannot be shortened
even by resetting the device.

Connecting up cables
Connecting up cables prior to mounting
Before you screw a SCALANCE W786 to a wall or to the optional mounting plate, the cables
for the power supply, for Ethernet, and, when necessary, for the external antennas must be
connected up first. The available options are as follows:
Figure 5-2
Side view of a SCALANCE W786 with cables entering from different directions
● The cables are inserted from above (position A in the previous schematic). The housing
of the SCALANCE W786 has an opening at the top for this purpose.
● The cables are inserted from below (position B in the previous schematic). There is also
an opening at the bottom for this purpose.
● Cables inserted through a wall behind the SCALANCE W786 (position C in the previous
schematic). In this case, you will need to mount the SCALANCE W786 so that the

5.2 Connecting up cables
Connecting up FO cables
Fiber-optic cables have a minimum bending radius. The cable must not be bent tighter than
this bending radius during installation or operation, otherwise the FO cable will be irreperably
damaged.
Figure 5-3
Connecting up an FO cable
For the FO cable, use the second opening from the left in the seal. Cable routing is
illustrated in the figure above. For individual cores immediately following the connector, the
minimum bending radius is 25 mm. Refer to the specification of the cable you are using for
the minimum permitted bending radius of the cable within the jacket. Make sure that the FO
cable is not sharply kinked after passing through the housing.
An adhesive sealing foil must be used in the housing sealing with FO cables (position A in
the figure above). For more detailed information, refer to the section "Connecting the
cables".

To operate the SCALANCE W786 safely, the chassis ground connector must have a
suitable cable connected. Do not use the SCALANCE W786 without a ground cable
connected.
The chassis ground connector is located on the rear of the device (M4 thread). Connect the
ground cable before you mount the SCALANCE W786 on a wall or on the optional mounting
plate. Once the SCALANCE W786 is mounted, the connector is no longer accessible.
Place the supplied toothed washer directly on the rear of the device before screwing on the
ground cable. Only then can you be sure that there is ideal contact with the screwed-on
cable.

Note
Installation location
The following should be noted with regard to the installation location:
• Devices with an internal antenna must be aligned according to the characteristics of the
internal antenna (refer to the technical specifications of the antenna --> Radiation pattern
diagrams). Since the internal antennas are integrated in the housing, the location and
alignment of the housing decides the radiation direction of the antennas.
• There are no restrictions relating to devices without internal antennas.
The location of the holes for mounting the SCALANCE W786 on a wall is shown in the

SCALANCE W786 wall mounting
Follow the steps below to screw a SCALANCE W786 to a wall:
1. Lead the cables into the housing of the SCALANCE W786 (position A in the figure
above). Note the information in the section "Connecting up cables".
2. Secure the SCALANCE W786 to the wall with three screws (position B in the figure
above). The screws are not supplied with the device. The type and length of the screws
depend on the type of wall.
Type of screw:
– for wooden walls: wood screw 4 x 30 mm
– for concrete walls: 4 x 50 mm with 5 mm concrete plug
– for metal walls: M4 x 25 mm with machine thread in the wall
Option: Threaded holes on rear of housing
When a wall is extremely thin, it is often not possible to use wall plugs for the screws. To
allow wall mounting even in this situation, there are four M4 threaded holes on the rear of the
SCALANCE W786. The drilling template is a square with sides 100 mm long. The device can
therefore be mounted on a wall with bolts through the wall.
Calculate the length of the required M4 screws as follows:
Screw length = wall thickness + 7 mm

Screwing the cover plate for the cable feedthrough to the mounting plate
Protection of the cable feedthrough against strong water jets
The cabling of a SCALANCE W786 is led out of the rear of the device. The housing seal is
effective only when it is not subjected to water jets. If the device is mounted on a wall, this is
the case and no further measures are necessary. When mounted in any other way, except
for mounting on an S7-300 standard rail, an additional cover plate must be screwed to the
mounting plate.
WARNING
Danger from line voltage
If the cable feedthrough is subjected to strong water jets, water can penetrate the device
and create a live connection to the line voltage. There is then a risk of electric shock.

Procedure
WARNING
Danger from line voltage
If the housing is not perfectly sealed, there is a danger to life due to the line voltage if the
SCALANCE W786 is subjected to spray water or dampness. Make sure that you keep to
the following safety rules.
• Before connecting up, turn of the power supply.
• The sealing of the cable feedthroughs of the SCALANCE W786 is only assured when
the cable has a suitable diameter and adequate tensile strength. Only use cables that
meet the specifications in the section "Cables for the SCALANCE W786". When
connecting up a FO cable, make sure that you use the adhesive sealing foil supplied
with the SCALANCE W786.
• Never wrap insulating tape, adhesive tape or other materials around thinner cables to
achieve the required diameter. In this case, neither the housing seal nor the strain relief
clamps can fulfill their function.
• Close all unused openings in the housing seal with the sealing plugs supplied with the
SCALANCE W786. Do not use fillers or any other material under any circumstances.
WARNING
Danger from line voltage
If the supply cable of a power supply adapter for 100 – 240 VAC is disconnected from the
mains power, a dangerous voltage may be present for a brief period.
For this reason, do not connect the contacts of the supply cable to the mains power supply
using a plug-in connector but screw the contacts to a terminal block that can be
disconnected from the mains power by a switch.

Points to note when connecting an oval FO cable
Note
The following information does not apply to the FO Robust Cable GP 2G50/125/900 (order
no. 6XV1873-2R). This cable type has a round cross-section and does not need additional
adhesive sealing foil.
The oval FO cable specified for use with the SCALANCE W786 FO Standard Cable GP
(order no. 6XV1 873-2A) does not have a circular cross section. As a result, remember the
following points when connecting up such cables:
Seal
Fit the supplied adhesive sealing foil at the point where the cable goes through the housing
seal. Only then will you achieve perfect sealing of the housing. Follow the steps outlined
below:
1. Remove the protective foil and wind the adhesive sealing foil completely around the oval
FO cable at the appropriate position transverse to the cable.
Strain relief clamp
When you fit the strain relief clamp, make sure that the FO cable is in the correct position.
The shorter sides of the cable must make contact with the toothing of the strain relief clamp.

Possible power supplies
The following power supplies are suitable for the SCALANCE W786:
● 48 VDC direct voltage
Use the two-pin connector supplied with the SCALANCE W786.
● 12 - 24 VDC direct voltage
Use the power supply adapter 12 - 24 VDC available as an accessory.
● 100 - 240 VDC direct voltage
Use the power supply adapter 100 - 240 VDC available as an accessory.
● Power over Ethernet (PoE, only with the RJ-45 variants)
If an eight-wire Ethernet cable is used, it is possible to supply power over the four wires
that are not used as data lines. As an alternative, the voltage can be modulated onto the
data lines ("phantom power").
If a Fast Connect Ethernet connector is used to allow cable assembly in the field and due
to its greater mechanical strength, you can only use four-wire cables. In this case, only
phantom power is possible. This does not represent a restriction for the user because
PoE-compatible power equipment always provides both options.

NOTICE
Exceeding the EMC limit values
• SCALANCE W786 with RJ-45 interface with DC power supply adapter or without power
supply adapter
When using a SCALANCE W786 with RJ-45 connector without a power supply adapter or
with a DC power adapter, no additional measures are necessary for use in a residential
environment.
• SCALANCE W786 with RJ-45 interface with AC power supply adapter PS791-2AC
When using a SCALANCE W786 with a power supply adapter PS791-2AC (100-240 V AC),
the requirements for use in an industrial environment are met without any additional
measures being necessary.
When used in a residential environment, noise produced by this configuration can be
reduced by fitting an EMC ferrite (a snap ferrite) to the power supply cable as close as
possible to the power supply adapter. You can order suitable ferrites from the following
company:
Würth Elektronik eiSos GmbH & Co. KG
Max-Eyth-Strasse 1 – 3
D-74638 Waldenburg, Germany
Model designation: STAR-TEC with safety key technology
cable diameter 6 – 7.5 mm: Order no. 74271131
cable diameter 7 – 8.5 mm: Order no. 74271132
• SCALANCE W786 with fiber-optic interface
The SCALANCE W786 devices with a fiber-optic interface generally only meet the emission
limit values for use in an industrial environment.
If you use the power supply adapter PS791-2AC (100 -240 V AC voltage) in a domestic
area (EMV class B), fit an EMC ferrite (a snap ferrite) to the supply cable as close as
possible to the power supply adapter. This measure is unnecessary in an industrial
environment.

How to connect external antennas
Note
The distance between the antennas of the various WLAN interfaces must be at least 1 m.
Figure 6-8
Position of the ports for external antennas with the housing cover removed
For each WLAN port, there are two R-SMA sockets on a SCALANCE W786 to connect
external antennas. The figure above shows how the R-SMA sockets are assigned to the
WLAN ports. With a SCALANCE W786-1PRO, only the socket pair labeled "1" exists; with a
SCALANCE W786-2PRO the sockets labeled "1" and "2" exist.
Perform the following steps to connect a cable for an external antenna to a SCALANCE
W786:
1. Insert the connector on the antenna cable into the R-SMA socket and tighten the sleeve
nut on the socket (key size SW8), tightening torque 0.6 Nm. First connect the cable for
antenna "B" if you want to use two antennas for an interface. Once the cable for antenna
"A" is connected, it is difficult to reach socket "B".
2. Screw a terminating resistor to the unused socket if you use only one antenna on a port.
3. Secure the antenna cable(s) with a strain relief clamp. For more detailed information on
this topic, refer to the section "Connecting the cables".

"Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause
interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference, including interference that
may cause undesired operation of the device."
"This device has been designed to operate with the antennas listed below*, and having a
maximum gain of 18 dBi. Antennas not included in this list or having a gain greater than 18
dBi are strictly prohibited for use with this device. The required antenna impedance is 50
ohms."
"To reduce potential radio interference to other users, the antenna type and its gain should
be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power (e.i.r.p.) is not more than that
permitted for successful communication."
"That the device for the band 5150-5250 MHz is only for indoor usage to reduce potential for
harmful interference to co-channel mobile satellite systems."
"Users should also be cautioned to take note that high power radars are allocated as primary
users (meaning they have priority) of 5250-5350 MHz and 5650-5850 MHz and these radars
could cause interference and/or damage to LE-LAN devices."
* For more detailed information on the approved antennas, refer to the section "Technical
