Facts about Industrial USB

Industrial USB - Delkin Devices

 

Industrial USB offers the convenience of portable storage with the reliability, capacity, and ruggedness of industrial flash memory. Industrial USB devices are used across a wide range of industries, from the military to aviation and beyond, thanks to the data protection and functionality that they offer.

 

Industrial USB Technical Specifications

Industrial USB flash storage is designed to work in rugged environments without any loss of function or capacity. Here is a look at what to expect from an industrial USB:

  • Operating temperature: -40 to 85 degrees C
  • Storage temperature: -50 to 85 degrees C
  • Shock: 10G, 11msec – Sawtooth Waveform
  • Vibration: 7.7GRMS
    • 20 Hz – 1000Hz@ 0.04 G2/Hz
    • 1000Hz – 2000HZ@ 0.01 G2/Hz

 

Capacity range, reliability, and performance depend on whether the USB uses SLC or MLC flash:

  • Capacity
    • SLC: 128MB – 32GB
    • MLC: 2GB – 16GB
  • TBW:
    • SLC: 234 TBW
    • MLC: 12 TBW
  • MTBF (same for both SLC and MLC)
    • >2 million hours at 0 to 25 degrees C
    • >200,000 hours at 60 degrees C
  • Performance
    • SLC: Read up to 32MB/s and write up to 30MB/s
    • MLC: Read up to 20MB/s and write up to 17MB/s

Some of the additional features of industrial USBs include:

  • Form factors that are available in two lengths: 57.6mm and 67.7mm, including the cap
  • Backwards compatibility with USB 1.1 ports
  • High-speed USB 2.0 compliance
  • Advanced wear leveling
  • EEC
  • Customization for a range of settings and designs
  • Compliance with the EU Directive 2001/65/EU

 

Applications That Use Industrial USB Technology

There are a number of product applications for industrial USBs, including in these industries:

 

The ability to customize industrial USBs gives them wide relevance for industries that handle critical data and that need the high performance and capacities of flash memory.

 

Additional Industrial Features

For additional protection for industrial users, industrial USBs feature:

  • Power fail protection
  • Advanced end of life (EOL) notifications
  • Controlled bills of materials (BOMs)
  • Lifecycle management
