Bedrock Automation has developed the next generation industrial control system with a revolutionary electro-magnetic backplane architecture and deeply embedded cyber security for the highest levels of system performance, security and reliability at the lowest system cost.
Bedrock started with a clean sheet of paper just a few years ago and re-imagined how a modern industrial control system should be designed: Simple Scalable Secure™
Simple: One controller for every conceivable application and size of control task. Ladder, Batch, Continuous, or Multivariable control from one device supporting as little as ten, or as many as thousands of I/O per controller. The first truly open platform that runs Bedrock’s advanced Cloud Control Architecture, proprietary OEM, or IEC61131 control languages. A controller with military and aerospace levels of physical and software crypto technologies that are layered, and transparent to the user. One device for the ages – security just happens.
Scalable: An unprecedented automation architecture with unlimited scalability from tens to tens of thousands of I/O using less than a dozen system part numbers. Our controller and power supply module each occupy single or dual positions on the patented Bedrock magnetic backplane (BMI). This revolutionary pin-less 4Gbit backplane supports Secure Controllers, Secure Power Modules and Secure I/O Modules with scalable single/dual/triple I/O redundancy. Regardless of application or size, the Secure Controller scales to the control task.
Secure: All traditional industrial control systems are vulnerable to multiple forms of cyber-attack, IP, and counterfeiting theft. Black Fabric™ Cybershield is Bedrock’s embedded deep trust cyber defense using patented processor, memory, communications, interconnections, backplane, and packaging technologies to integrate cyber security into every module at birth. Embedded deep trust also means Black Fabric™ Cybershield comes at no additional cost or compromise to performance. Black Fabric™ Cybershield works transparently and instantly upon startup to manage transistor-encased authentication keys that protect the hardware, firmware, software, and application transactions of the Secure Controller throughout its entire lifecycle. The controller is born with Black Fabric™ Cybershield, fortified for users against the threats of today and tomorrow.
