SAN JOSE, CA., USA — January 11, 2018 — The readers of Oil & Gas Engineering magazine have voted Bedrock OSA® Remote as one of the best new products of 2018. The controller combines PLC, RTU, and edge control; intrinsic cybersecurity; and universal analog, discrete and digital I/O into a compact standalone module ideal for remote monitoring and control applications. The OSA Remote won a Gold award in the IIoT/Process Control category.
Oil & Gas Engineering, published by CFE Media, covers all aspects of oil and gas operation, design and distribution, with a specific focus on helping oil and gas operations managers operate safely and more efficiently. The annual Product of the Year awards recognize significant innovation and advancement in technologies and best practices.
“From its inception, Bedrock Automation has been dedicated to reimagining every aspect of the installed base of automation assets.
