A solid-state drive is a hard disk made with an array of solid-state electronic memory chips. Flash memory-based solid-state drives are the main category of solid-state drives, and their internal structure is very simple. The main body of the solid-state drive is actually a PCB board, and the most basic accessories on this PCB board are control chips and cache chips (some low-end hard drives have no cache chips) and flash memory chips for storing data. Industrial applications often face extreme temperature requirements, and it is important to pay attention to solid-state drive industrial temperature considerations. Therefore, industrial solid-state drives must be able to meet demand without data loss or other failures. Industrial solid-state drives are the choice for industrial use thanks to their reliability during operation and storage in extreme temperature environments. Choosing an industrial solid-state drive ensures longevity and reliable data storage in harsh conditions.
An industrial solid-state drive is used in applications where temperatures are more extreme than typical commercial equipment. In industrial applications, SSDs may be moved from one area to another due to large temperature differences, or function in environments where extreme temperatures, including high and low temperatures, are expected. These temperature issues are common in industrial products, including in the transportation, aerospace and energy industries.
The industrial temp SSD is designed to operate in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius. During storage, these solid-state drives can withstand higher temperature extremes. Custom industrial temperature solutions are also available for SATA and Industrial SATA SSDs.
There are several benefits to using storage rated for industrial temperatures, including Significantly reduced risk of field failure compared to commercial grade solid-state drives. Improved storage life, which means equipment lasts longer and costs associated with equipment replacement are lower. Better data retention with SLC flash memory.
In addition to being able to operate in extreme temperatures, there are other benefits to using industrial-grade storage. Industrial solid-state drives, like our half-slim SATA SSD, use a locked bill of materials. This means that while the product number is valid, the basic components will remain exactly the same. If a product number is set to scrap and a component is turned off, engineers are given advance warnings so they can place final orders and develop plans to prevent any potential errors from using new parts.
