The Importance of SSD Industrial Temperature Considerations
Industrial applications often face extreme temperature demands, and it’s important to note SSD industrial temperature considerations. As such, industrial SSDs must be able to stand up to demands without experiencing data loss or other failures. SATA II SSD 2.5” and mSATA SSDs are both options for industrial use, thanks to their reliability in extreme temperature environments during both operation and storage. Choosing industrial SSDs ensures longevity and reliable data storage in rugged conditions.
Temperature Considerations for Industrial SSDs
Industrial SSDs are used in applications in which temperatures are more extreme than they are for typical commercial devices. In industrial use, SSDs may travel from one area to another with wide temperature differences or function in environments in which extreme temperatures—both hot and cold—are expected. These temperature issues are common across industrial products, including in the transportation, aerospace, and energy industries.
Industrial grade SSDs are designed to operate at temperatures ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius. During storage, these SSDs can withstand even greater temperature extremes. Customized industrial temperature solutions are also available for SATA and mSATA SSDs.
Benefits of Using Industrial SSDs in Extreme Temperatures
Using storage that is graded for industrial temperatures offers several benefits, including:
- Significantly reduced risk of failure in the field when compared to commercial grade SSDs.
- Improved storage longevity, which means longer lifespans for devices and fewer costs associated with device replacement.
- Better data retention, thanks to SLC Flash.
In addition to the ability to operate in extreme temperatures, there are other benefits to using industrial grade storage. Industrial SSDs utilize a controlled bill of materials. This means that the essential components will remain exactly the same while the product number is active. If the product number is set to be retired and components switched out, engineers will get advanced warning, so that they can place final orders and make plans to head off any potential errors caused by using a new part.
