Industrial Flash Storage for Railroad Applications

Delkin Applications

 

Industrial flash storage is used for critical data storage in a number of different transportation applications, including railroad applications. The type of flash storage device chosen for these applications is extremely important, as they require industrial grade memory rather than commercial grade products. Using industrial grade flash storage ensures that the stored data are kept safe, even in the rugged operating environment of railways. Here is a closer look at industrial flash storage for railroad applications.

 

Why opt for industrial flash storage?

Flash storage is available in many different formats and can be found in everything from smartphones to airplanes. However, not all flash storage is created equal. There are different grades of flash storage that are designed for different applications. When it comes to transportation, industrial grade flash storage is the gold standard.

 

Industrial flash storage functions well in temperature extremes and does not lose operating capacity in environments with high levels of shock and vibration. In railroad applications, vibration, shock, and hot temperatures are all common. Using industrial flash storage ensures that the critical data are not compromised, even in these extreme operating conditions.

 

How is industrial flash storage used in railroad applications?

You can find flash storage being used in many different capacities on railways. One such use is navigation. Itineraries can be programmed into flash storage devices, including extensive data about timing, direction, speed, and even expected weather and altitudes. This information helps individual trains better maintain their schedules while improving the overall efficiency and safety of the entire rail network. Programmed itineraries can also improve fuel efficiency. Details can even be recorded while an itinerary is being executed to determine how closely the train is following the pre-programmed information, letting operators pinpoint any potential issues.

 

Industrial flash storage can also be used for security purposes. Recorded data can alert operators to potential safety issues within the system and store important details about passengers and staff. It is also possible to detect data security breaches and alert operators to the potential of a security issue.

 

In addition to supporting a train’s operations, flash storage may be used for infotainment systems. Trains can use flash storage devices to offer onboard entertainment options. This helps to improve passenger comfort and satisfaction.
