Below are FAQ’s regarding Bedrock’s Platform, Security and Software. If you do not see what you are looking for, please fill out the form and we will reply as quickly as possible.
Yes, within the sampling time limits of the AI and HART.
Port A (the forward port) is standard Gigabit Ethernet for communicaiton between the SCC and outside devices such as the BIDE, HMI and SCADA systems, and any other device which wants to connect to the SCC's built-in OPC-UA server. Port B (the rear-most port) is reserved for connection to an SRC in a Bedrock I/O backplane.
No, HART is supported on our SIO 1.05 and SIO U.10 universal IO modules allowing one HART device per channel.
Conformal coating may be available upon request.
While the case is made of corrosion-resistant aluminum, and the SCC/SPM backplane connectors are gold plated, normal precautions including mounting the system in a NEMA 4/4X enclosure are recommended.
The accuracy specification is for all ranges at full scale independent of conversion rate.
The SPM has two 24VDC inputs and one 90-240VAC/DC inputs, so you can have 3 redundant power sources connected.
9 SRC modules can be supported by a single SCC module for a total of 10 backplanes or a maximum of 4000 IO supported.
No, each portion of redundancy is independent of each other. However a BMI 10 or 20 is required as redundancy is not supported on the BMI 5.
The entire system works as a large heat sink. A typical controller will release its heat using convection out of vents. The Bedrock controller uses conduction to pull heat from the components. The controller may feel hot on the outside the components are running much cooler.
-40C to +85C.
512MB for program, 8 GB for data.
Yes, and it is accessible through the Bedrock IDE
The Channels and the LEDS are fixed regardless of the orientation.
The Ethernet Module can be used as a 5 port managed switch and only supports 100BaseT.
Yes, a single Ethernet module will support all available protocols at the same time. Each port will support all running protocols simultaneously.
NAMUR I/O is supported with the SIO U.10
This means any channel can be made redundant with any other channel on any module using double or triple module redundancy. Voting is performed in the CPU.
Secure RAM is an attribute of secure micro-controller technology used throughout the control system. This is SRAM which is internal to the secure processor.
Between separate controllers, the accuracy will be within 1ms.
Any excess power will be available to the auxiliary port up to 48 watts and can be software limited in the IDE.
While there are no absolute answers in security, the Bedrock Controller currently provides the highest level of security in the industry.
Since Bedrock's parent company is the chip manufacturer, the same level of cryptography found at Bedrock is used at the seminconductor facility. Therefore the whole supply chain is under Bedrock's control.
The Bedrock Controller does not accept a flash drive, so there is no way a virus could be introduced through that vector. Also, due to the layered security of the Bedrock Controller (down to the transistor-level), the Bedrock Controller is immune to any viruses or Trojans that could be introduced to the company network through a flash drive.
Yes, through the Apache SubVersion plug-in.
DNP3 support is not currently in the roadmap, but support is within the capabilities of the Bedrock hardware. Please contact
Sales if there is a market for this feature.
