A Look at Industrial SSD, Industrial Grade Solid State Drives
If you are looking for a reliable, high performance flash storage device, then you’re looking for industrial SSD. Industrial SSDs exceed the performance and endurance capabilities of commercially available models, which is why they are used for embedded storage in industries from transportation to gaming and many more. Is an industrial SSD the right flash storage solution for your application? Here is what you need to know.
Why is industrial SSD superior to commercial models?
Stability is the key factor that sets industrial SSDs apart from commercial storage devices. Industrial SSDs are designed with a controlled BOM—Bill of Materials—that includes the flash, controller, and firmware. With a controlled BOM, the SSD will not have component changes until the parts number is discontinued. Further, you will be notified of these changes before they occur, allowing you to rely on your SSD for even critical data logging.
What are the technical specifications?
Industrial SSDs are available in a range of capacities in SLC flash. The technical specs are as follows:
- 4GB – 64GB capacity range
- -40 to 85 degrees C operating temperature
- -50 to 100 degrees C storage temperature
- 7GRMS vibrations (20Hz – 1000Hz @ 0.04 G2/Hz, 1000Hz – 2000Hz @ 0.01 G2/Hz)
- 10G, 11msec – Sawtooth Waveform shock
- 937 TBW
- < 3 million hours MTBF (0 to 25 degrees C)
- 145MB/s read and 130MB/s write
Industrial SLC 2.5” SSDs are also available for legacy SATA designs with either a standard 2.5” HDD or SSD slot. These SSDs have larger capacity ranges—up to 256GB—as well as faster sequential read and write performance capabilities.
