Bedrock Control System Wins 2015 Breakthrough Product Award from Processing Magazine
By: Bedrock Automation
“The process industries are under increasing assault from malicious code and unwelcome intrusion, yet the SCADA RTUs, DCSs and PLCs that control production are based on technology developed before cyber threats became common. Bedrock has built a universal control system from the silicon up, which represents a significant breakthrough that will impact the process industries for years to come,” said Kevin Parker, Processing magazine Editor-in-Chief.
Bedrock™ addresses virtually all control applications with fewer than a dozen part numbers, reducing cyber attack vectors, cutting lifecycle costs, and simplifying engineering, commissioning and maintenance. It delivers I/O, power and communications across a pin-less electromagnetic backplane with a parallel architecture that supports ultra fast scan times regardless of I/O count. Removing I/O pins improves reliability and increases cyber security while forming a galvanic isolation barrier for every I/O channel. This massively innovative backplane also allows installation of I/O modules in any orientation and location for unprecedented flexibility in I/O and cable management.
Secure I/O modules use layers of advanced technology to deliver software-defined I/O for universal analog, discrete, Ethernet and Fieldbus signal types. A secure power module is functionally and physically coupled to the backplane to deliver single and dual redundant cyber secure power for the control system. A secure universal controller is so powerful it can run virtually every conceivable application independent of size or control task: discrete, batch, continuous, or multivariable control from one device that supports as few as ten, to as many as thousands of I/O points.
