SE51TFLHL-C1000-D

 

Industrial SD cards offer embedded storage solutions for industrial devices that require high levels of performance. With an industrial grade SD card, you’ll get the rugged storage you need for demanding environments, such applications in the automotive, healthcare, and automation industries. There are multiple forms of SD cards, so choosing the right one for your device will help you get the performance you need with the right level of efficiency for your project. As you weigh up your choices for industrial SD cards, here is what you need to keep in mind.

 

Look for Industrial Grade Performance

SD cards come in industrial, utility, and commercial grades. Although each kind of card has its appropriate place, if you are placing the card in an industrial application, then you will need to select an industrial grade card. This kind of SD card features SLC NAND flash memory, in which one bit of data is stored per cell. As a result, these SD cards perform operations faster than other SD card formats, and they offer the best possible level of data security. SLC-based SD cards also have a significantly longer lifespan and have been designed to perform in extreme conditions. For example, an industrial grade SD card will offer extended temperature range performance and withstand conditions ranging from -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C.

 

Consider Your Capacity Needs

One of the most important considerations when choosing the best industrial SD card for your application is the card’s capacity. Industrial SD cards are available in a wide range of capacities, from as small as 128MB to as large as 128GB in the standard SD format. There are also extended capacity SD cards, including the SDXC, which are available in capacities ranging from 64GB to 2TB. Finding the right storage capacity for your needs will prevent you from running out of space or purchasing a card that has more capacity than you need.

 

Choose Your Customization Options

A significant benefit of industrial SD cards is that they can be customized in many different ways. They can be adjusted to meet your host-specific parameters or designed with laser etching, pad printing, custom labeling, and conformal coating. When looking for the best industrial SD card for your application, be sure to consider the different customization options that are available.
