Addressing Power Fail Concerns for Industrial Applications

 

For industrial developers, power failures are one of the biggest challenges. A power fail can have significant and costly impacts, from the breakdown of an automated manufacturing system that leads to delays in production to failures of critical medical equipment that hamper doctors’ abilities to provide necessary care to patients. Preventing and mitigating power failures are critical steps when it comes to designing and maintaining an industrial device. Although it is not always possible to prevent power fails, it is possible to reduce the risk of one happening. Here are some of the things you can do to reduce the chances of a power fail impacting your industrial application.

 

Consider the Power Usage of Embedded Memory

Memory plays a key role in the amount of power used by an application. Some memory requires power in order for data to be stored, which in turn puts additional demands on the power source. If you choose embedded memory designed with NAND flash, then the power demands of your device will be reduced, since NAND flash memory does not require power for data storage. Not only will choosing NAND flash memory reduce the amount of power required to run your device—which in turn reduces the chances of a power fail and makes your device more eco-friendly—but it also means that your data will be secure if a power failure does occur.

 

Evaluate the Operating Environment

The operating environment can have an impact on the likelihood of a power fail for a specific device. If you have an industrial device, then NAND flash memory is likely to be the most appropriate option for your needs. This kind of memory has an extended temperature range and the ability to withstand higher than normal levels of shock and vibration. This will help to ensure that your device won’t suffer from power fails caused by rugged operating conditions.

 

Review Internal Power Fail Protections

Many kinds of flash memory come with internal power fail protection programs. These programs can monitor power conditions and recover data that may have been compromised during a power failure. An internal power fail system can alert you if potential issues are occurring with power that could be corrected before a complete failure happens.
