September 14, 2016 – Bedrock Automation has introduced the SPS.500 Secure Power Supply. This power supply provides cyber security authentication and onboard intelligence for diagnostics and secure Ethernet communications. Encased in a NEMA 4X sealed aluminum enclosure, users of any PLC, SCADA RTU, PAC or DCS can retrofit to the SPS.500 inside or outside enclosures, anywhere in a plant and in harsh environments.
The Bedrock SPS.500 makes the power supply a viable participant in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) with the following features not typically found in power supplies today: • Ethernet and OPC/UA communications, enabling local or remote monitoring of power supply health for system reliability and plant safety • A cyber secure microprocessor and onboard memory for diagnostics and software-defined functionality • A built-in redundancy module, which simplifies installation and increases reliability by eliminating the need for an external redundancy module • Two built-in, software-configurable Form C contact relays, which provide operating and diagnostic status
Increasing onboard intelligence and Ethernet communications requires integral advanced cyber defense, which Bedrock Automation delivers with its embedded authentication and FIPS140-2 compliant anti-tamper protection.
Bedrock Automation has designed the SPS.500 with margins of safety and protection against the physical and electrical forces that induce accelerated wear. The SPS.500 is enclosed in a NEMA4X hermetically sealed solid aluminum metal case. This ground-breaking electro-mechanical design delivers many benefits to users, including protection from severe EMI/EMP, as well as from extreme temperature, shock, vibration and ingress by water and solids. This approach delivers FIPS140-2 anti tamper compliance for cyber defense. The physical hardening makes the SPS.500 suitable for remote or extreme applications across the spectrum of automation.
The Bedrock Secure Power Supply provides single or redundant supply, using 90-264 V AC main voltage 50/60 Hz input. Its output of up to 500 watts is software configurable, between 21 to 28 volts.
