Flash Storage for Energy Management and Utility Systems Applications

 

Data storage used in energy management and utility systems applications is subject to some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. These kinds of storage devices have to be rugged enough to function without performance failures, even when faced with temperature extremes and high levels of shock and vibration. Any failures of energy or utility systems can have significant impacts on businesses and communities. For these reasons, many engineers working with energy management and utility software applications choose to use industrial SD flash storage. Industrial SD flash storage for energy management and utility software applications has several advantages and offers powerful performance in extreme conditions. Here is why industrial SD cards are so widely used.

 

What are industrial SD flash storage cards?

SD flash storage refers to memory cards that are designed according to specifications set by the Secure Digital Association (SDA). These specifications ensure that a card will be compatible with applications that have SD card slots, regardless of the manufacturer that produced it. There are multiple SD card formats and sizes, designed to work with a wide variety of products.

 

Industrial refers to the grade of the SD card. Many industrial-grade SD flash storage cards are designed with SLC, or single-level cell, flash memory. This is the highest grade of flash memory available. With this kind of flash memory, one bit of data is stored per cell, which means it has the lowest risk of data corruption or loss.

 

What conditions do energy management and utility applications face?

For these kinds of applications, temperature fluctuations are the biggest challenge. Industrial SD cards are capable of functioning in temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C, so they can stand up to the demands of rugged environments. This includes both extreme temperatures and rapidly changing temperatures.

 

These applications may also be exposed to higher than normal levels of vibration and shock. Industrial grade SD cards can tolerate shock and vibration better than lower card grades.
