Cyber Security FIGHTING CYBER Attacks within FRONTIER PITTS CONTROLS Systems

An anti-tamper digital key into its Electronic Control Cabinets for gates, roadblockers and bollards to stop unauthorised bridging of circuits in an attempt to force entry or activate the security products will be introduced by Frontier Pitts.

The device, known simply as KP1, will stop unauthorised attempts to override Frontier Pitts electronic PLCs should access be gained into the security control cabinets. It will stop attempts to gain access to a site by electronic override using a laptop or manually overriding open or close circuits on its PAS 68 impact tested Anti Terra range of products, via the control cabinet.


By employing the KP1, Frontier Pitts have ushered in a new era in perimeter security products utilising an in depth approach adding additional layers of security to your site.

The KP1 uses a 256-bit encrypted link that switches off all circuits should any attempt to override electronic circuits be detected.

The KP1 alongside our enhanced PLC’s improves the Terra range’s tamper resilience ensuring the integrity of your mission critical infrastructure is safe from malicious intent by locking out un-authorised or intrusive access.

A CPNI/HVM Presentation centred around controls inspired Frontier Pitts Electronics R&D and Software Engineers to create this unit. The unit has been tested on the PAS 68 Terra Range of Blockers and Gates, and will be supplied as standard on all Terra equipment from early 2013.
