Bedrock Automation Designed for Intrinsic Security

Because today’s mainstream control systems are based on architectures developed before cybersecurity was a threat – securing them requires adding on firewalls, intrusion detection and other pricey bolt-on solutions. These may provide some degree of protection, but they are far from impenetrable. Once an intruder gets through, there is very little to stop them. With Bedrock’s built-in protection, however, anything that does penetrate bolt-on defenses will have no place to go. The intruder would have to pass muster at multiple electronic checkpoints, break military grade encryption that would take years for even today’s most power computers, and even then would have cracked only a single module.

Fortress Interlock’s proNet

Fortress Interlock's proNet range provides an Ethernet based networking capability between PLCs and safe + non safe I/O. Ethernet IP’s CIP Safety (AB CIP) and Profisafe for Profinet are the supported industrial protocols.

Fortress proNet Control Stations are configurable network solutions aimed at reducing the cost of installation/ownership of bespoke fabrications with hardwired control functionality. It is expected that the costs associated with wiring time, panel building, panel space and the purchasing of enclosures, IO modules, terminals, multicore cables, industrial connectors at the machine or cell for the safety switches, sensors and interlocks can be avoided.
