Benefits of Industrial Compact Flash (CF) for Building Automation Applications

 

The manufacturing sector has undergone significant transformations in recent years, characterized by an increasing reliance on automated systems. These automated systems enhance productivity and output, while reducing the possibility of human error. The steadily increasing presence of automated systems in factories and manufacturing plants also results in the increased need for flash storage devices that can withstand factory conditions. The challenge is selecting the appropriate industrial CF for building automation applications.

 

CF cards are sufficiently rugged to withstand environmental extremes.

When selecting a data storage solution for building automation applications, the environmental factors must be taken into consideration. Different factories may have different operating temperature ranges, and some may be characterized by sudden temperature fluctuations. Shock, vibration, and dust should also be considered. OEMs often choose industrial CF (Compact Flash) cards because they have a reputation for ruggedness and durability in the face of environmental extremes.

 

CF cards have enhanced security features.

The security of a company’s proprietary information is of the utmost concern to executives, and this concern is passed down to the engineers and OEMs who must design the facility’s automated systems. Again, industrial CF cards are the clear choice, as they offer enhanced security features with different levels of authentication. These security features include the option to enable password protection to prevent unauthorized access.

 

CF cards have low power consumption needs.

Power consumption is a key consideration for any engineer or OEM, as it speaks to the design of an efficient automated system. When there is a need for a data storage solution that features low power consumption, the choice is often industrial CF cards. These also feature power and voltage anomaly protection.

 

CF cards from Delkin offer a locked BOM.

Consistent performance and reliability are essential characteristics of ideal data storage solutions in factory and manufacturing plant applications. This is particularly true since malfunctions can cause automated equipment to produce faulty products or to cease productions altogether. Companies cannot afford mistakes on this scale, which is why OEMs rely on having a locked bill of materials (BOM). The locked BOM assures consistency and quality of the critical components, including the firmware, flash, and controller.

 

Selecting the right solution for industrial CF for building automation applications is critical for the success and proper functioning of your device. Engineers, OEMs, and purchasing agents are invited to contact the Customer Applications team at Delkin to discuss site-specific requirements. Delkin offers a range of industrial flash storage solutions built to withstand extreme environmental demands.
