Open Secure Automation:
Simple Scalable Secure

 

White Paper Series

Bedrock Automation has launched an automation revolution by inventing a universal cyber secure industrial control system platform from the ground up. Intrinsic cyber security, open architecture, robust all metal construction, no I/O pins, free software… everything you need to solve all of your automation challenges.

 

Chapter One: The Backplane

Chapter One of our white paper series outlines a new epoch of industrial automation. All aspects of control system reliability, security and lifecycle cost have been rethought from first principles. The result is a new ICS platform we call Open Secure Automation®. OSA®delivers a user-centric renaissance of improved reliability, embedded security and lower cost. The journey begins with the backplane.

Chapter Two: Empowering Power

Chapter Two is the story of what happens when automation power systems, supplies and module “things” are empowered with advanced technology to sense, compute, remember and communicate to their users. They become extensions of holistically reliable and secure automation, and a gold standard of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Chapter Five: Life Cycle Cost Analysis

Chapter Five provides the most comprehensive industrial control system evaluation guide ever made available publicly. It covers 90 evaluation criteria in the areas of engineering, installation, commissioning, maintenance, cyber security, and system design, along with methodology for weighting them. This is a unique tool for anyone involved in specifying a DCS, PLC, PAC, RTU, or other industrial control system.
