The Need for Open Secure Automation
Automation users, vendors, and industry consultants agree: the control system for the digital revolution must be open, secure and powerful. With over 100 patents to date, only Bedrock Open Secure Automation (OSA®) meets all these criteria today with breakthrough innovation delivering industry-leading open control, cyber security and performance that saves customers time and money.What OSA® can do for you
Open control optimizes your process at lower cost and with greater simplicity. Bedrock provides free IEC 61131 engineering software and Secure OPC UA, MQTT and DDS communications.
Bolting cyber security protection onto legacy automation is costly and risky. Only Bedrock is secure by design with cyber security built in leveraging a secure supply chain.
Profiting from digitization requires high bandwidth and speed, which Bedrock delivers for PLC, RTU and DCS applications ranging from ten to thousands of I/O on a universal platform.
What People Are Saying
“I am super-excited about the Bedrock OSA® Remote. The security alone is worth the price of admission, but if I factor in the soft-selectable I/O, programmability and ruggedness, there is nothing else even close.”
Process Automation Manager for the
Lynchburg, Virginia Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant
“I like the acronym, OSA®, Open Secure Automation. Bedrock continues to invent new products and solutions to address every problem that users have had to historically deal with on plant automation and safety systems. They are truly thinking differently about how to solve these problems. By reviewing much of the Bedrock technology, it appears almost obvious as the proper solution and you have to ask, "why hasn't someone thought of this before?”
Retired IC&E Manager, ExxonMobil
“It was time to replace our old control system with something that would provide a path to the future. The Bedrock® control system from Bedrock Automation, with its high performance, scalability, and built-in cyber security protection, offered an ideal solution."
Steve Mallett, Jr.
P.E., General Manager of the City Corporation,
“We are expanding to the meet the growing need for midstream services and need a secure way to centralize flow control amongst our facilities. The Bedrock system provides an economical solution in a small, easy-to-implement system that can coordinate edge control today, while also scaling easily and economically to the full DCS functionality we expect to need in the future. We also liked the rugged Bedrock housing, which will resist the dust that gets into everything around here."
VP of Engineering and Operations for Pinnacle Midstream
"Using Bedrock, problems can be identified, sometimes even solved without having to physically be at the plant or in the field. That translates into cost savings, improved reliability, and higher customer satisfaction."
Clarksville Light & Water General Manager
“We were excited about our new field and really wanted to optimize technology to impact our operations, field surveillance and have real-time data. This system has allowed us to achieve that from any location, office or field, with access to the internet."
