April 17, 2018 – Bedrock Automation, maker of the Bedrock Open Secure Automation (OSA) system, has introduced a controller that combines PLC, RTU and edge control; intrinsic cyber security; and universal I/O into a standalone module for remote monitoring and control applications. The Bedrock OSA Remote is configured with the standard Bedrock IEC 61131-3 engineering tools.
The Bedrock OSA Remote integrates cyber security, universal I/O, open connectivity, free engineering software, broad temperature operating range and sheer computing power to contribute in the following ways:
- Each OSA Remote channel can be programmed for analog, discrete and digital connectivity supporting pulse, AI/AO, DI/DO, HART 7, BSAP, RS-232/485/422, Ethernet IP, ModBus TCP, 61850, DNP3, PROFINET, DeviceNet, CAN Bus and BACnet.
- Bedrock OSA Remote provides a secure SCADA uplink for OPC UA, and will also support MQTT and DDS later this year.
- The OSA Remote measures 137 mm (5.4 inches) X 226 mm (8.9 inches) and 59 mm (2.3 inches) thick
- All Bedrock OSA Remote controllers operate at temperature ranges between -40° C and +80° C without fans or forced draft.
- With an array of cyber secure and multi-core ARM processors, 512Mb RAM, 8Gb or 32Gb Flash, MRAM for retained variables and a supercapacitor to retain firmware for years without power, OSA Remote has the computational power and communication bandwidth needed to run the edge control and analytics expected in a modern deployment of automation.
- In addition to preventing cyber intrusion, Bedrock intrinsic cyber security works to reduce the need for external firewalls, intrusion detection and other devices. This intrinsic security can even extend protection to other legacy systems, functioning as a secure proxy.
Bedrock Automation is now accepting OSA Remote orders for delivery this summer.
