High Capacity Flash Drive FAQs

Delkin Devices Industrial USB Flash Drive

 

With solid state drives (SSDs) dominating the market for embedded storage and external hard drives maintaining popularity for holding massive amounts of data outside of a system, it’s easy to overlook the role of USB flash drives. Though USB drives were once extremely common, many people have stopped considering them when they need portable storage. The reason that they get overlooked so often is that many users assume that they can’t get the storage capacities they need from a flash drive. However, modern flash drives have evolved significantly over the years. You can now save up to 16GB of data with industrial grade flash features in a single high capacity flash drive. These drives combine the familiarity of the USB flash drive format with the high capacity benefits of other kinds of storage devices.

 

What are the benefits of using a high capacity flash drive?

Most people who opt to use a flash drive choose it for its reliability and ease of compatibility. Flash drives can easily be plugged into virtually any system, and they are portable. This allows massive amounts of data to easily be transferred from system to system.

 

Flash drives are also appealing because they are so familiar. Even novice tech users tend to be familiar with flash drives and know how to use them, reducing the risk of user error.

 

Can high capacity flash drives work for industrial applications?

To use a high capacity flash drive in an industrial application, it is important to choose a drive that was developed for the industrial market. These drives may have either SLC or MLC flash, and are designed with the features that are expected in industrial products, including an extended temperature range.

 

For critical applications, it is especially crucial to choose an industrial high capacity flash drive over a commercial model because of the locked bill of materials (BOM). With a locked BOM, no changes to the drive that could affect compatibility will be made without advanced notification and a new product number.
