Questions to Ask Your Industrial Storage Supplier

 

Storage is a make-or-break part of any industrial application, so cutting corners is not an option. You need an industrial storage supplier who can reliably meet the needs of your design and can provide the support and guidance you need to get the most from your storage. When you’re selecting industrial storage, asking your potential supplier a series of questions will help you determine if they will be able to adequately meet your needs. Ask these questions to get a better understanding of what kind of storage and support a supplier can offer you.

 

What industries do you serve the most with your storage products?

It’s common for storage suppliers to offer products for a variety of industries, from consumer cameras to industrial devices. Don’t be concerned if they work with a large number of different industries. However, you should ensure that they are used to providing storage in the grade that you need. This is especially true if you have an industrial application that requires a high degree of security or which needs storage that operates without any loss of reliability in rugged conditions. If the storage supplier you are considering is not experienced in serving the industrial market, then you may need to look for an alternate supplier.

 

How will you help me find the right storage product for my application?

Many OEMs and designers have an idea of the type of storage that they will need. However, they don’t have the expertise to ensure that they are choosing all of the best options for their storage, especially for a new device design. Your industrial storage supplier should offer services such as customization and testing to help you pinpoint the most efficient, reliable form of storage for your application. They should also be willing and able to help you troubleshoot if you begin to experience storage issues in the future or provide other kinds of support so you can get the most from your storage.

 

How do you discontinue storage products?

When storage products are discontinued or the designs are changed, it can cause a ripple effect of unexpected failures that can lead to significant disruptions in the field. Your industrial storage provider should offer a locked BOM and have a procedure in place to ensure that critical components are not changed without notice. This will ensure that you have time to make a plan, place final orders, and avoid disruptions during the transition.
