A Look at the Benefits of Extended Temperature SSD

Industrial M.2 SSD

 

Solid state drives, or SSDs, are now the standard drive format used in a large number of consumer and industrial devices. Although hard disk drives, or HDDs, once reigned supreme, SSDs with flash storage are now preferred for a long list of reasons. For industrial users, extended temperature SSDs provide the reliability that is necessary for critical applications. If you are an OEM or engineer considering using an extended temperature SSD in your device, this look at the benefits may help you make up your mind.

 

Reliability in Rugged Conditions

Industrial applications are often used in extreme conditions. From automation applications used in assembly lines to devices used in transportation, industrial SSDs are frequently exposed to very high and very low temperatures, rapid temperature fluctuations, and other extreme conditions. SSDs without extended temperature ranges are unable to cope reliably with these kinds of conditions, so they may experience data loss and catastrophic failures. Extended temperature SSDs work in conditions as cold as -40 degrees C and as warm as 85 degrees C, so there is no need try to adjust the operating conditions or worry that the device will fail when the SSD is pushed too far. As an added benefit, SSDs that have extended temperature ranges are also capable of tolerating other rugged conditions, including high amounts of shock and vibration, making them a perfect fit for industrial use.

 

SLC Flash with SSD Dependability

Extended temperature SSDs are designed with SLC flash technology, which means they have the longest operating life of all flash devices and the fastest read and write operations. SLC flash can last thousands of times longer than lower grades of flash storage. This is important for industrial users who cannot continually retest and re-qualify storage applications.

 

SSD technology itself is another benefit. SSDs are more durable than HDDs and less prone to failures caused by jostling, so they are suited to rugged industrial conditions.
