Building on Bedrock – Your Foul Weather Friend

September 19, 2019
Albert Rooyakkers

Although Bedrock is known for its unrivaled intrinsic cybersecurity, the following other intrinsic features can make it your best friend in a storm:

 

  • All metal enclosures. We drove a pickup truck over one of our modules, and it stilled ran flawlessly. This would not likely happen with the plastic modules of other control systems.
  • Lighting strike resistance. Likewise, we blasted a Bedrock module with sustained multi-million volts blasts from a Tesla coil and it survived.  (See video here)
  • Dust and Moisture protection.  Our UPS and SPS are sealed for IP67 & NEMA 6 Compliance.
  • Wide Temperature Operating Range. At -40 C to + 80C (-40 C to + 176 F), Bedrock has the widest temperature operating ranges in the process automation industry
  • Secure standalone power supply (SPS) and UPS – Both our standalone power supplies and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) have the same intrinsic cyber protection as our control products. They supply up to 500-watt power supply with peak efficiency over 94%.
  • High capacity for maximum performance in all conditions. Our systems provided fixed 1 millisecond scan times regardless of load along with 512MB RAM with options for 8GB, 32GB or 64GB Flash memory. This is significantly more than other control solutions have.
